The German technicians from G-Power aftermarket shop are masters when developing specific tuning project for BMW owners; and their portfolio comprises more than two hundreds BMW programs, from vintage models to the latest editions.
Among the plethora of sports models, sedans or coupes, engineers from G-Power are also crazy about SUVs, with the X5 and X6 being their preferred. However, the top of the line X5M is also getting the best attention it deserves. The owner of the BMW X5M seen below has decided to add some new power and a new aero kit, so he also called G-Power for some help. And the result is what you can see in the video and media gallery below.
The tuner`s project is called “Typhoon” and involves the fitting of their Bi-Tronik 2 V3 engine control software, which significantly raises the SUV`s power and performance. In stock form, the X5M comes with a 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, with 575 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque, allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds.
With the fitting of their new power kit, the model is now churning out no less than 739 horsepower and whopping 980 Nm of torque. With the speed limiter removed and new power, we think of around 3.8 seconds from the same straight line. Unfortunately, the official details have not been confirmed yet. However, the video below impresses its audience with the X5M by G-Power running the ¼ i in a blazing 11.5 seconds.
The tuner`s Bi-Tronik 2 V3 program consists of some new mechanical stuff, like much faster turbines, titanium sports exhaust system with stainless steel downpipes and four wide exit pipes.
Visually, the BMW X5M Typhoon by G-Power now comes with wider air intakes up front, massive fender flares, dynamic side skirts, rear bumper with 102 mm diameter tailpipes. The overall design looks smashing with the huge 23-inch ultra-forged alloy wheels, wrapped in 315/23ZR23 high-performance tires.
