G-Power G4 3.0i EVO III BMW Z4 M

G-POWER has offered new characteristics to the BMW Z4 3.0i. The model is now capable of reaching a top speed of 300 km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds. The 6-cylinder engine develops 375 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque. The conversion of the standard engine to the G-POWER EVO III configuration is EUR18.850 including the installation which can only be done at its headquarters. G-POWER offers superchargers system for increased power output looking back on 25 years of experience in tuning BMW automobiles. The large wheels make room for the high-performance brake system with eight-piston fixed calipers and 380 x 34 mm brake disks on the front axle. This supercharger system is available for all BMW Z4 3.0i with manual transmission along with different items from the extensive G-POWER tuning accessories line-up.

300 km/h top speed, 0-100 km/h in just 4,9 seconds, 375 hp and an engineā€™s peak torque of 420 Nm: These are the characteristics of the latest G-POWER development for the BMW Z4 3.0i

In addition to the increase in power output of 144 hp for the 6- cylinder engine, that normally produces 231 hp, the G-POWER offers a complete tuning program for the Bavarian roadster consisting of: Aerodynamic body kit, light-alloy wheels, suspension modifications, high-performance brake system and exclusive interior components.

G-POWER offers superchargers system for increased power output looking back on 25 years of experience in tuning BMW automobiles. The new G-POWER EVO III supercharger system is an evolution, based on the well known systems for the Z4 2,2 to 3,0 l six- cylinder engines of the BMW Z4. Its core is an ASA T1-12 supercharger from the all new ā€œblack-lineā€ edition that features ceramic ball bearings for an increased rpm limit of the charger. Accordingly the boost rises to a higher pick of 0,6 bar rel. , which is cooled down by a large air-to-air intercooler and controlled by an Dual Flow bypass system. To keep the oil temperatures at level the G-POWER EVO III system is equipped with a thermostat controlled oil cooler, that prevents the ASA supercharger from overheating. On the exhaust side the G-POWER EVO III system features a complete exhaust system with racing-headers and catalysts. This measure optimizes power yield, throttle response and also ensures the engineā€™s thermal health. Specially developed mapping for engine electronics coordinate the perfect interaction of all new components.

The results of the G-POWER treatment are impressive: With 375 hp at 6.450 rpm and 420 Nm torque at 4.650 rpm the standard 231 hp strong BMW Z4 3.0i becomes a true eliā€Mā€inator. With a sprint time from rest to 100 km/h of 4.9 seconds and to 200 km/h in 15,1 seconds the G-POWER G4 is at level with the BMW Z4M and finally outruns it with a top speed of 300-km/h. The conversion of the standard engine to the G-POWER EVO III configuration is 18,850,00 Euro including the installation; which can only be done at our headquartersā€™ workshop in Autenzell Bavaria.

The enormous performance places extreme demands on aerodynamics, tires, suspension and brakes. The G-POWER front apron replaces the production part in its entirety. Its large air inlets provide optimal supply of cooling air for the high performance air-to-air intercooler. At the same time the spoiler minimizes lift on the front axle at high speeds. The G-POWER rocker panels smooth the airflow between the wheel houses and give the Z4 a longer, lower and sleeker appearance. Lift on the rear axle is reduced by the G-POWER rear apron, that features the needed openings for the 4 pipe G-POWER rear muffler.

The G-POWER Silverstone 20-inch light-alloy wheels that fill out the space beneath the wheel arches perfectly, underline the distinctive new look of the G-POWER equipped BMW Z4, are mounted in sizes 9.0 J x 20 with size 245/30 ZR 20 tires in front and size 10.0 J x 20 wheels with size 285/25 ZR 20 tires on the rear axle.

The large wheels make room for the G-POWER high-performance brake system with eight-piston fixed calipers and 380 x 34 millimeter brake discs on the front axle. The Z4 handling can be made even sportier by installing the height-adjustable G-POWER coil-over suspension RS with nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound.

The G-POWER EVO III supercharger system is available for all BMW Z4 3.0i with manual transmission, along with the numerous items from the extensive G-POWER tuning accessories lineup.
