The full press release:
The G-POWER TYPHOON "Black Pearl" arrived! At the end of the jubilee year "25 years G-POWER", G-POWER introduces an exclusive special model of the G-POWER X5 TYPHOON to the market. Driven by the 625 hp / 460 kW strong G-POWER SK III RS Eight Cylinder Compressor Engine, the Black Beauty darts over the motor-way with more than 300 km/h.

Brawny wing extensions and strikingly formed front- and rear skirts qualified for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, mark the appearance of the G-POWER TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL". And as the name already applies, it is entirely black. An exciting eye-catcher is the G-POWER "BLACK PEARL" bonnet which ensures an improved removal of the hot exit air from both turbo chargers out of the engine compartment by a central Venturi engine compartment ventilation for driving and 2 lateral ABS-grids for the standard ventilation. Moreover, the noble carbon structure is the figurehead of the G-POWER TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL".

If desired, the body makeover in OEM-quality can also be delivered in PU-Rim and the G-POWER designers used the most modern CAD technology when producing it. Therefore, the basic car has been entirely digitalised with an in-house 3D-Scanner. The elegantly formed G-POWER wing extensions at the front- and back axle which are naturally delivered with a perfectly matching inner wing extend the X5 by seven centimetres. They make room for extra-broad 23" wheels and tyres. The especially for the TYPHON "BLACK PEARL" developed G-POWER SILVERSTONE aluminium wheels in the dimensions 11Jx23 at the front and 12Jx23 at the back were also designed entirely black. Four high-performance tyres measuring 315/25 ZR 23 by the development partner Michelin render optimal traction and sporty handling.

In combination with the extended wings, especially the absolute independently styled G-POWER TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL" front skirt, the facial expression of the exclusive SUV is formed. The large air inlets do not only improve the overtaking prestige, they also guarantee an optimised cooling of the engine and the front brakes. Moreover, due to its elaborate shaping, the aerodynamic lifting forces at the front axle could be reduced.

The rear skirt of the TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL" has been designed like the front skirt and therefore entirely replaces the serial bumpers. Apart from the two striking end pipes of the G-POWER stainless steel sport end muffler, the diffuser also marks the rear appearance. And in combination with the spoiler which is attached to the boot lid and visually prolongs the roof line, the lifting forces at the rear axle are also minimised.

The TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL" side skirts do not only provide an aerodynamically favourable transition between the extensions: on their bottom side five LED units which can be activated by remote control or by pulling a handle at the door, illuminate the ground at both sides of the car. At the upper side, stainless steel inserts with an also blue illuminated G-POWER logo are integrated.

Matching the dynamic appearance, G-POWER offers an extremely strong motorisation for the G-POWER TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL". In co-operation with ASA, the world-wide renowned developer and OEM-supplier of high-tech supercharger systems, a mechanic charging system for the eight-cylinder four-valve engine has been created.

The G-POWER SK III RS supercharger system gives the 4.8 litre engine a performance increase of 270 hp / 199 kW to 625 hp / 460 kW at 6,100 r.p.m. and renders a torque increase of 225 Nm to 700 Nm at 5,300 r.p.m. Compared to turbo models, such a strongly equipped engine reacts to any impact to the gas pedal aggressively and without any delay. In order to achieve this performance, an ASA T1- 725 charger with radial centrifugal clutch is flanged to the engine with a CNC-milled, high-strength framework structure. The supercharger which is powered by a crankshaft via the multi-rib belt has an oil flow which is integrated into the engine oil circulation for lubrication. The boost pressure is 1.0 bar.

This performance explosion originates in the core part of the G-POWER supercharger systems, the entirely newly developed T1-723 ASA radial supercharger. Moreover, supercharger systems are also used in the ALPINA models B5S, B6S and B7, and of course also in the ALPINA B6 GT3 race car, in which the ASA supercharger impressively confirmed its reliability and quality in the "Green Hell" at the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring this year. The exclusive use of components in OEM-quality is an essential part of the G-POWER philosophy and the basis for extraordinarily high quality, reliability and durability of G-POWER products.

The two-part carbon intake air duct with large, aerodynamic transverse sections, a large-volume aluminium charge air cooling system in the front of the X5 and a G-POWER SPEEDFLOW high-performance exhaust system which is entirely made of stainless steel and includes racing headers, racing catalysts and end mufflers, form the peripheral equipment of the supercharged engine and moreover render an earthy sound which emphasises the acoustics of the eight-cylinder engine.

Also, the engine itself is thoroughly refined by G-POWER. Starting with a new set of forged pistons for compression reduction, manufactured in the Formula 1 department at MAHLE, over eight balance- and weight-optimised high-performance connecting rods up to a precisely manufactured crankshaft, the BMW V8 engine is completely re-engineered. Eight new fuel injectors with a larger fuel mass capacity, a new ignition map for engine electronics and an additional re-cooling system for engine oil and cooling water perfect the engine makeover. Of course, also the serial transmission is modified and adjusted to the performance.

The enormous performance potential of the G-POWER SK III RS supercharged engine in combination with the six-gear automatic transmission and the xDrive 4WD enables the SUV to render a driving behaviour which confirms it as a top player in its vehicle class. The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h only takes 4.5 seconds. After 16 seconds, the mighty five-door car already reaches a velocity of 200 km/h. The maximum speed more than 300 km/h.

The G-POWER TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL" cockpit can be refined with exclusive accessories like an ergonomically formed sport steering wheel, a speedometer in TYPHOON design and interior linings made of full carbon. Further wishes can be fulfilled with exclusive interior equipments in all possible leather and ultra-suede colours.

The G-POWER TYPHOON "BLACK PEARL" can be ordered as a complete automobile from € 295,000 (net). Alternatively, any BMW X5 E70 can be refined with individual G-POWER components of the high-performance SUV.

You'd think they would put on some breaks that matched the performance of the engine after all that moding..


I like the styling ques alot! Not to big on the "TYPHOON" written on the side though..

This should definately be the next main car in the Fast and the Furious #5, 6, 7? Looks like a boy ricer.

Performance numbers look decent though!
