725HP G-Power BMW X5 M Typhoon

The German carmaker BMW received a wide body kit for its X5 M from G-POWER. The 4.4-liter V8 engine that powers the vehicle is now capable of developing 725 horsepower and 890 Nm of torque. This amount of power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. The price for the package starts at EUR12.185. The body kit in original equipment quality made from PU RIM was developed by G-POWER designers using state-of-the-art CAD technology. The base vehicle was fully digitized in-house with a 3D scanner. The top-end version comes with G-POWER SILVERSTONE RS forged wheels developed specifically for the TYPHOON with 11Jx23 format up front and 12Jx23 on the rear axle. The rear skirt is conceived to completely replace the production-standard bumper. The tuner offers a mighty power unit for the BMW X5 M. there is an improved flow of cooling air to the radiator and oil cooler at the front of the vehicle, increasing cooling performance by around 15%. On the exhaust side, a fully stainless steel G-POWER system delivers the necessary reduction in exhaust back pressure featuring a set of sport catalytic converters and most important a set of flow optimized connection pipes have also been installed between the turbochargers and the cylinder heads to minimize pressure and thermodynamic looses. In combination with a reinforcement of the standard BMW X6 M automatic transmission a torque maximum of 1000 Nm can be provided. The V8 Bi-Turbo power unit endows the X5 M with on-the-road performance that catapults it into the elite group at the very top of this vehicle class. The tuner has refined the interior of the BMW X5 M with exclusive accessories like an ergonomically designed sports steering wheel, a G-POWER speedometer and fine carbon-fiber trim on the side panels, center console and dashboard. Further preferences can be fulfilled with exclusive interiors in all shades of leather and Alcantara.
