AC Schnitzer's ACZ 5.0d concept - BMW Z4 With A M50d Triple-turbo Diesel

AC Schnitzer is a tuning company known for upgrading BMWs and that is exactly what they have done with their ACZ 5.0d concept. They started with a BMW Z4 sDrive 23i and swapped the factory motor for a triple-turbocharged 3.0 L straight-six M50d from a BMW M550d. The engine’s power has been increased from 375 hp and 546 ft-lb of torque to 424 hp and 619 ft-lb of torque.

The rear end was changed to a limited slip differential from a BMW E92 M3 and the transmission to a eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters. AC Schnitzer didn’t limit the build to power only. The car was put on a nice diet, losing a total of 288 lbs thanks to carbon fiber roof/trunk lid, lightweight wheels and exhaust system. All these changes account for a 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 185 mph.

They claim the car was built only for development but they did release the build price of €113,965 (approximately $121,388). Which means if anyone has that kind of money and wants one, AC Schnitzer would be more than happy to build it for you.
