AC Schnitzer signs up to Germany’s TUNE IT! SAFE! initiative with a bodykitted EV in Polizei livery

Sadly, the modified BMW i4 by AC Schnitzer that you see above will not be silently hunting down crims at any point soon. That’s because although it’s wearing a full Polizei livery, it’s actually a concept car for Germany’s snappily-titled and seemingly effusive TUNE IT! SAFE! initiative. 

Said initiative is supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in Germany and basically asks the tuning companies to present a legally-modified car in full police paint in order to promote safe tuning.

AC Schnitzer has now created eight of these police concepts, and this latest one adds a proper bodykit to the i4 complete with a front splitter, a number of rear spoilers and lots of additional carbon fibre bits.

There’s also a lowering kit with new springs that drop the ride height by between 20mm and 25mm, as well as new 20-inch wheels and lots of aluminium bits inside. We haven’t been told about any powertrain upgrades, but we’d like to imagine that underneath this is an i4 M50 with a special ‘police tune’ and around 1,000bhp.
