Cool G-Power X5M Typhoon Gets Power Bump to 725 HP

G-POWER X5 M TYPHOON - with 725 hp, pass the 300 km/h mark even faster!

First there was the "small" TYPHOON body kit; now here comes the "big" TYPHOON wide body kit for the BMW X5 M. Thanks to optimised air flow and up to 15 % more cooling, the G-POWER body kit clears the way for an increase in the base output of the 4.4 l V8 bi-turbo power unit of 170 hp to no less than 725 hp.

G-POWER X5 M TYPHOON
  • * 725 hp / 533 kW at 6,000 r/min (+ 170 hp / 125 kW)
  • * 890 Nm at 1,500 r/min (+ 210 Nm)
  • * V max - more than 300 km/h
  • * 0-100 km/h - 4.2s
  • * TYPHOON aerodynamic package starting at € 12.185,-- (net)

Muscular flared wheel arches plus distinctive skirts and spoilers on the front and rear trimmed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency define the look of the G-POWER X5 M TYPHOON. The body kit in original equipment quality made from PU RIM was developed by G-POWER designers using state-of-the-art CAD technology. The base vehicle was fully digitised in-house with a 3D scanner.

The elegant sweep of the flared G-POWER wheel arches front and rear - which, of course, come with perfectly matched inner panels - give the X5 M seven centimetres more width, making room for extra-wide 23-inch wheels and tyres. The top-end version comes with G-POWER SILVERSTONE RS forged wheels developed specifically for the TYPHOON, with 11Jx23 format up front and 12Jx23 on the rear. Each corner sports 315/25 ZR 23 high-performance rubber from development partner Michelin, delivering optimum traction and sporty handling that is further enhanced by the G-POWER sports suspension and a 30 mm lower ride height.

Together with the flared wheel arches, the face of the exclusive SUV is distinguished largely by the G-POWER TYPHOON front skirt designed entirely in-house. The large air intakes not only improve overtaking prestige, they also guarantee optimum cooling of the engine and front brakes. Moreover, design refinements succeeded in reducing aerodynamic lift on the front axle.

The sills on the TYPHOON serve not only as aerodynamically efficient transitions between the front and rear flares, they also house five LED units on each side that illuminate the ground on each side of the vehicle when activated either by remote control or by pulling the door handle. Along the upper surfaces, stainless steel inserts integrate a G-POWER logo also illuminated in blue.

Like the front section, the rear skirt on the TYPHOON is conceived to completely replace the production-standard bumper. The diffuser has an imposing impact on the rear view, as do the two distinctive 114 mm tailpipes on the G-POWER stainless steel sports silencer. Together with the spoiler fixed to the rear hatch, which adds visual length to the roofline, minimal lift has been achieved at the rear axle, too. A further example of the detailed refinements in the design of the G-POWER TYPHOON Wide Version for the BMW X5 M is the four-part underbody panelling.

In keeping with the dynamic look, G-POWER offers a mighty power unit for the BMW X5 M. Thanks to the enlarged air intakes in the front skirt and the outlet vents in the bonnet, there is an improved flow of cooling air to the radiator and oil cooler at the front of the vehicle, increasing cooling performance by around 15%. This establishes the basis for a thermally balanced performance increase achieved by electronic optimisation developed by G-POWER and involving changes to the engine mapping including removal of the top speed limiter. On the exhaust side, a fully stainless steel G-POWER system delivers the necessary reduction in exhaust back pressure featuring a set of sport catalytic converters and most important a set of flow optimized G-POWER exhaust manifolds connecting the turbochargers. In addition, optimised connection pipes have also been installed between the turbochargers and the cylinder heads to minimise pressure and thermodynamic losses. The outcome is an additional 170 hp, taking the overall output to an impressive 725 hp at 6,000 r/min and 890 Nm of torque at 1,500 r/min. The maximum torque is electronically limited. In combination with a reinforcement of the standard BMW X6 M automatic transmission a torque maximum of 1000 Nm can be provided.

The enormous potential of the G-POWER modified BMW V8 bi-turbo power unit endows the X5 M with on-the-road performance that catapults it into the elite group at the very top of this vehicle class. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h lasts only 4.2 seconds, with the top speed at over 300 km/h.

G-POWER has refined the interior of the BMW X5 M with exclusive accessories like an ergonomically designed sports steering wheel, a G-POWER speedometer and fine carbon-fibre trim on the side panels, centre console and dashboard. Further preferences can be fulfilled with exclusive interiors in all shades of leather and Alcantara.

Pricing for the TYPHOON aerodynamics package starts at € 12.185.00,-- plus installation by G-POWER in Autenzell. The price for the 23-inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE RS or EDITION wheel set with MICHELIN tyres is € 8,865.55,--. The G-POWER power boost to 725 hp including complete exhaust system and modifications to the turbocharger installation is available for € 18,000.00,--.

Neons have to go and exhaust has to go.

Other than that, I like it.

Reminds me of:

wow that's some impressive power and torque.. imagine that engine inside the M3.. for the price is cost that's the engine the M3 GTS should have come with, especially since the next gen M3 is getting boosted anyways, actually this should just be the engine they use in the next M3..

I love this, it looks awesome and thats a whole damn lot of power. I think the exhaust is fine, the led lights do have to go. Unless the lights only come on when you unlock the car and then go of after you start driving and whatnot, that wouldn't be too bad, it'd just be like the doorhandle lights.
Also besides the exhaust this looks nothing like a SRT8 from the back imo.

All that additional power and torque and all they shaved off the 0-62 is .3 seconds. It seems like you are paying for all looks. I am betting the upper rev range is where this new power comes into play but they don't post anything about it. They should post stuff like 80-120 or 60-120 etc compared to stock so we can see where the improvements come into play.

"an increase in the base output of the 4.4 l V8 bi-turbo power unit of 170 hp to no less than 725 hp."

An increase in the base output (555) of 170 to 725. The 170 is describing the increase over the base.

555 + 170 = 725

The LED lights are called "puddle lights." Commonly found in Bippu styled cars in Japan. Usually, they are programmed to turn on once the doors are open, maybe they flicked em for the picture.


Imagine you got a chick in the car, and you go out for a night on the town, but you didnt notice the gutter on the side of the road had water in it, and she stepped into the darkness......it would suck if you had to hear her the whole night complaining about her Jimmy Choo's...definitley sucked for me.
