Most cashed-up and relatively sane motoring enthusiasts would be ecstatic with a BMW X5 M in the garage, delivering a solid 408 kW and 680 Nm, but German tuning house G-Power, are clearly not the definition of sanity.
They weren’t even happy with their own 447 kW version, no sir, the head honchos over at G-Power thought that serious autobahn travelers would be better off with 533 kW (725 PS) and a stomping 890 Nm. I guess that should enable the family wagon to keep up with a GT3.
Did I mention that the full 890 Nm torque output is available from just 1500 rpm, and top speed is over 300km/h. What about 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds?
Naturally, the torque is electronically limited, but G-Power has tweaked the standard X5 M transmission to handle up to 1000 Nm.
Along with the power boost will set you back 18,000 euro, the new wide body Typhoon Aero package starts at 12,185 euro.
If you’re a frequent autobahn cruiser and the job is going well, I suppose it’s good value for the extra grunt.
