G-Power unveils Typhoon BMW X5 M and X6 M, capable of 600 HP


Performance SUVs, if you’ve seen the last episode of Top Gear, are pretty much useless, but that doesn’t stop tuning companies from having a go at further upgrading their power stats and design.

The last one to do such a thing is G-Power, which went to work on the BMW X5 and X6 M models, and upgraded their twin turbo engines from the stock 550 HP to 600 HP for both of them, with a torque of 700 Nm. The resulting Typhoon models will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a sportscar-like 4.5 seconds, and keep on going well beyond 300 km/h (over 186 mph).

Major enhancements were also made to the design of the two models, which received a new carbon fiber front skirt with much bigger air intakes, a new bonnet made out of a Kevlar and carbon fiber hybrid, wider side skirts from carbon fiber, as well as a rear diffuser which matches the four tailpipes. The X5 M is available with a set of one-piece 23-inch aluminum wheels, while the X6 M gets a three-piece set with the same size, and can also be fitted with 22-inch ones.


As I’m not sure what would anyone do with an X5 or X6 M, I’m not even positive that anyone will opt for the tuning and design package from G-Power, but then again, taste is subjective. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
