The new X5 Falcon by AC Schnitzer


The falcon has always been a born fighter, the bird of warriors and a status symbol of the mighty and powerful. The peregrine falcon, with a dive speed of more than 200 km/h, is the fastest bird in the world. With its broad “wings”, the new Falcon by AC Schnitzer also presents a majestic aura. The new widening kit for the front and rear wings perfectly harmonises with the existing accessory range from the Aachen-based tuner. Especially in combination with the front skirt element with its spoiler corners and indicated drive-under protection, at first sight it gives the SUV the supremely confident aura of the fighter. The image of the “bird of prey” has been further emphasised by Designer Michele Viandante by the two triangular metal-rimmed air intakes in the bonnet.

And faced with the imposing rear end, who would dare to get too close to the Falcon? With its strong contours, the AC Schnitzer spoiler skirt has a muscular, masculine appearance. The designer has achieved a particular eyecatcher in the sports rear silencer, with its chromed tailpipes in “Racing“ design emphatically projecting from the rear. And the new 22” Type VII racing wheels with their dark looks are just as fascinating.

While other cars rely on puffed-up looks the Falcon has a lot of power under the hardened plumage: the 3.0 litre diesel engine, which as standard delivers 210 kW and 286 HP, has been electronically upgraded by AC Schnitzer to give an impressive 228 kW/310 HP. The maximum torque has also risen from 580 to 680 Nm. With subtle lowering thanks to the new suspension kit, AC Schnitzer has given the “Falcon” impressive manoeuvrability of a level which is scarcely believable from such a mighty vehicle. Just like its natural namesake, famous for being able to change its direction in flight in a flash. So it’s no surprise that the elegant falcon has virtually no natural predators.
