Word is, MINI’s brand new baby, the Countryman, is in for a special treat by AC Schnitzer, the carmaker’s tuning specialist. When MINI Countryman rolled into the European showrooms late last year, AC Schnitzer has a list of things they planned to add to MW Auto Group’s newest recruit. According to inside scoops, the AC Schnitzer’s add-on list seems pretty modest, nothing really fancy, but the add-ons would satisfy every MINI lover who want to give an personalized look and feel to their four-wheel drive SUVs.
MINI enthusiasts wouldn’t want to pass this up since AC Schnitzer’s add-on list includes the debut of a 19-inch set wheels that come with two distinct designs. The fist one is the Type IV that comes in two color schemes of two-tone and silver. The second is an 18-inch set wheels that can be found in both Type VI and Type VIII.
The tuning specialist is planning a set of aluminum pedals as well as gear knobs that comes with a digital gear marker and is accented with fine genuine leather. For now, the automotive world is still busy with the initial news from AC Schnitzer. Of course, it wouldn’t come as a surprise before AC Schnitzer would issue a complete styling and performance package for MINI’s countryman.
