G-Power first introduced us to their 600 hp BMW X5 M with “small” Typhoon body kit at the end of last year. Little did we know that the extreme BMW tuner was already working on “bigger” wide body kit. The result, thanks to optimized air flow providing up to 15 percent more cooling, is an increase in power output by 170 PS (125 kW) over the standard X5 M with 555 PS (408 kW) to a total of 725 PS (533 kW).
Furthermore, torque is increased up to 890 NM (series: 680 NM / 500 lb·ft) at 1,500 rpm and top speed is more than 300 km/h (186 mph). 0-100 km/h – 4.2 seconds.
Taking full advantage of the increased air flow, G-Power remapped the ECU and added a set of sport catalytic converters and G-Power exhaust manifolds reducing exhaust back pressure. Lastly, G-Power added new connection pipes between the turbochargers and the cylinder heads minimizing pressure and thermodynamic losses. Although torque is electronically limited, the BMW X5 M transmission was also reinforced to handle up to 1000 NM.
The new wide body Typhoon aerodynamics package starts at € 12,185. (plus installation in Autenzell) while the power boost to 725 PS is available for €18,000.
