AC Schnitzer has introduced perhaps one of the coolest engine conversion suggestions for the BMW 1 Collection hatch; shoehorning in the 3.0-litre M50d tri-turbo diesel engine and calling it the 150d.

The M50d engine, or more particularly, the N57S device is just offered in the X5 and also X6 in Australia. Abroad though the mighty unit is available in the 5 Series, attached to a four-wheel drive system and also an M550d badge. It’s a dazzling engine, creating 280kW and also a whopping 740Nm.

The company revealed the 150d at the Essen motor Show of Germany. It’s based on the three-door 1 Series hatch as well as features a variety of AC highlights, such as a bodykit, one-of-a-kind wheels with fat back tyres to manage the torque, as well as unique suspension as well as brakes.

In the engine bay is not only the N57S engine, it has likewise been tuned and tweaked to generate 294kW of power as well as a tyre-torturing 800Nm of torque. Unlike the manufacturing facility versions suited with this engine, the 150d is rear-wheel drive.

No efficiency figures have actually been released at this stage however provided the M135i hatch with its 240kW 3.0-litre turbo-petrol can accomplish 0-100km/ h in 4.9 secs, we ‘d be presuming a sub-4.5-second time for the 150d, at the very least.
