AC Schnitzer, tuning specialists have taken the Range Rover Sport 3.0L SD V6 Diesel and fitted it with a host of technological and aesthetic tuning systems sure to appeal to Range Rover fans. This is not the first time that AC Schnitzer has tried their hand at the Range Rover as they have been tuning models from Land Rover ever since 2002. It is however, the first time that the tuning company is offering performance kits.
The Range Rover Sport with performance kit from AC Schnitzer sees an enhancement in performance from 215 kW/292hp/600 Nm to 250 kW/340hp/720 Nm while at the same time it may be noted that auto emissions remain constant.
The new performance package also ensured improvement of exhaust gas flow due to the existence of a twin silencer made of stainless steel. This possesses two Sports Trim tailpipes or an option of four Sport tailpipes along with an efficient exhaust system.
It is due to an all wheel drive system that there is more agility and better responsive also noted on the new Range Rover Sport while original AC Schnitzer accessories made of exclusive materials and noted for durability and high tenacity are also being offered as part of the performance package.

At the 84th Geneva Motor Show from 6th to 16th March 2014, AC Schnitzer is presenting the Range Rover Sport 3.0L SD V6 Diesel with an extensive range of technical and aesthetic tuning products.
This is the first time that the Aachen specialists have had a Range Rover in the workshop for a complete facelift. AC Schnitzer has been tuning some models from the Land Rover marque since 2002, but until now has only offered performance kits. Tuning fans amongst Range Rover drivers can now rejoice at this world premiere.
One goal of Aachen-based tuning expert AC Schnitzer was to expand the limits of the Range Rover Sport. This has been achieved amongst others by more diesel thrust for higher acceleration and perceptibly more torque. The Range Rover Sport by AC Schnitzer with performance kit has been upgraded from 215 kW / 292 hp / 600 Nm to a stunning 250 kW / 340 hp / 720 Nm. Despite the extra power, the CO2 emissions of the Range Rover remain constant; i.e. the CO2 emissions per hp have fallen. That’s “Efficient Performance by AC Schnitzer”.
The exhaust gas flow of the Range Rover Sport is improved by the fitting of the AC Schnitzer twin silencer of stainless steel, with two “Sports Trim“ tailpipes or with four “Sport“ tailpipes (both in right/left combination). Visually too, the exhaust system is a striking highlight.
The all-wheel drive vehicle becomes more agile and responsive thanks to the AC Schnitzer lowering module, which lowers the Range Rover Sport by up 30 or 35 mm.
A powerful, sporting presence with a striking silhouette is achieved by aerodynamic elements such as the AC Schnitzer front and rear skirts with integrated rear diffuser. In the cockpit, drivers find the AC Schnitzer keyholder and velours footmats in sophisticated
The Range Rover Sport by AC Schnitzer will run on Type VIII forged racing rims in 10.0J x 22 inch, or 10.5J x 23 inch, and of course corresponding tyres (275/40 R 22 or 305/30 R 23 all round) for the world premiere in Geneva.
From summer 2014, the entire tuning product range will be available for Range Rover drivers. Until then the tuning specialists will continue to work on special accessories and will be expanding the range to cover further models of the Land Rover marque. Watch this space!
