G-POWER X5 M TYPHOON - 750 hp (551 kW)/ 980 Nm

New wide body kit available for BMW X5 M models now!

Aresing/ Ot. Autenzell, (PresseBox) - Hot on the heels of the BMW X6 M-based TYPHOON, G-POWER has now released the X5 M-based TYPHOON, the second string to their world-beating powerhouse SUV bow. Representing the peak of performance for BMW’s M5 (SAV) and M6 (SAC), the previous G-POWER TYPHOON based on the previous E70 X5 and E71 X6 models had 725 hp. And with its wide body kit, which includes a carbon-fibre bonnet, the G-POWER TYPHOON is no “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

Now G-POWER presents their TYPHOON wide-body conversion for the new BMW X5 (F85) and X6 (F86) models, as seen here on their 575 hp BMW X5 M. As with its predecessor, the new TYPHOON wide-body kit went through a 12-month gestation period before being released into the wild. The development process began with the digitisation of the base vehicle using a 3D scanner. The draft CAD design was then modelled in 1:1, and after the engineering prototyping was completed, the pre-production vehicle underwent thousands of kilometres of real world testing before being signed off.

Although the X5 M is a more upright design that its Coupe sister, thanks to the G-POWER wide body kit, Venturi bonnet, and various other carbon-fibre components, the G-POWER TYPHOON version is anything but conservative looking. At first glance, this latest addition to the G-POWER TYPHOON family grabs your attention with its muscular wheel arch flares, which significantly increase the width of the X5 M. The bigger air intakes in the new front bumper give the car a more aggressive face, adding to its more purposeful appearance.

Form follows function, and the new carbon-fibre bonnet with its Venturi based ‘Dynamic Venting’ system not only looks imposing, but has been designed to work with the air intakes in the front apron to draw excess heat from the engine compartment. The reduction in the working temperature of the twin-turbo V8 engine motor achieved by this airflow system allows the engineers to increase the power output. Bespoke side skirts visually tie the wider front wheel arches to their counterparts at the rear, while the new rear valance highlights the four 102 mm diameter tailpipes of the lightweight G-POWER titanium sports exhaust system.

Named after their top speed record M5, the HURRICANE RR is G-POWER’s signature alloy wheel design. A set of these ultra-light forged alloy wheels in 23-inch diameter, shod with 315/25ZR23 high performance tyres, is used to fill out the wide wheel arches of the X5 M TYPHOON. Made from forged aircraft-grade aluminium alloy, these wheels are available in three different colours with a choice of high-sheen surface or as a polished variant - the G-POWER DIAMONDCUT. A unique option is the possibility of having the owner’s personal signature added to the wheels.

To provide the performance implied by the visual gravitas of the cars appearance G-POWER applies the proven technology of their G6M Bi-Turbo conversion for a rousing 750 hp. The performance boost to 750 hp (551 kW) and 980 Nm of torque is delivered by a combination of turbocharger modifications and the application of G-POWER’s Bi-Tronik 2 V3 engine control software, customised to the individual engine.

The standard compressor wheel in each modified turbocharger housing is replaced with a larger and more efficient bespoke unit developed by G-POWER and manufactured in-house on their CNC milling machine. While the new wheel is larger, it is also lighter. The reduced inertia results in faster spin up and improved throttle response. At the other end of each turbocharger units, a more efficient exhaust turbine wheel helps to reduce exhaust gas temperatures, allowing higher boost pressures for increased power output. Both wheels are dynamically balanced for silent and reliable service.

Finally, a reduction in exhaust back-pressure is achieved through the use of bespoke stainless steel downpipes leading to a titanium sports exhaust system terminating in a rear silencer with four large exit pipes.

Further details along with the prices for the G-POWER "TYPHOON" wide body kit, the Bi-Tronik 2 V3 or the 23’’ HURRICANE RR forged wheels are listed in our online shop.
