The G-Power tuning specialists have released this new BMW X5 M Typhoon project that features a wide body kit for the Sport Activity Vehicle. This BMW SAV also received a power increase from the notorious tuners, which optimized the efficiency of the 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8. G-Power hooked up the BMW X5 M with a new air flow system that improves the cooling by 15%, and as a result boosts the power figures to 725 hp at 6,000 rpm, and 890 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm. At higher rpm’s the torque has been limited to 1,000 Nm, while the X5 transmission needed modifications to handle the increase of power.
Extra aftermarket parts in this project consist of a stainless steel exhaust with new sport catalytic converters and custom exhaust manifolds for the turbos. G-Power gave the BMW an ECU remapping to correct the air to fuel ratio, and the result is an acceleration time of 0 to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds with a top speed over 186 mph.
The exterior look is what caught my attention, and was developed using a 3D scanner and CAD technology. All parts were made from PUR RIM technology and include new bold wheel arches, aggressive front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and under body panels to improve aerodynamics. The BMW SUV or shall I say SAV, was blacked out with Silverstone RS forged wheels, specially designed for this kit. They measure to be 23-inch size rims, mostly black with a red lip, and come wrapped in Michelin high performance tires. Tweaks to the suspension were also made to offer superior handling when compared to typical BMW X5 M models.
