The everyday entanglement of tuner vehicles and the police entails Quick & Livid impersonators modifying vehicles to outrun different road racers and the cops, however who get caught anyway and go to jail for doing unlawful stuff on the general public roads. At present we stand witness to the exception to the normal tuner car-police relationship. This AC Schnitzer-tuned BMW M850i makes greater than 600 horsepower however is not for outrunning the German Polizei—it is truly for the German Polizei.
The modded 8-Collection is a part of a German marketing campaign known as “TUNE IT! SAFE!” Basically, the German police and AC Schnitzer need to encourage drivers of all sorts to customize their rides whereas being protected and respecting the principles of the street. The marketing campaign has been round since 2005, and for 2020 AC Schnitzer donated its sixth car to the undertaking, a 2020 BMW M850i xDrive.
After all, that is no odd 8-Collection. Schnitzer has tuned up the 4.4-liter turbocharged V-Eight to 621 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque, up from 523 horses and 553 lb-ft. The outfit additionally lowered the automotive, added barely larger wheels, and fiddled with the aero barely by including entrance dive planes, a lip spoiler, and an enormous rear diffuser we might usually count on on an M automotive.
There’s additionally a full regulation enforcement fashion wrap with “POLIZEI” written throughout the facet, a lightweight bar up prime, and a police radio inside. Sadly, this 8-Collection will not be chasing down baddies on the Autobahn anytime quickly. It is merely a present automotive, and can seemingly solely be introduced out for particular appearances at exhibits and different Tune It! Secure! occasions. We do wish to assume that one thing like this prowling German roads would discourage at the least a couple of from misbehaving, although.
