BMW X5 G-Power Typhoon RS goes even faster

BMW G-Power X5 Typhoon
Earlier this year, European tuners G-Power released the BMW X5 G-POWER TYPHOON with 525 hp. Since then BMW has confirmed the power figure of the standard X5 M to be 555 hp. Not to be upset by the factory model, the tuner now brings out the X5 G-POWER TYPHOON RS which forks out a phenomenal 625 hp and maximum torque of 516 lb-ft from a completely re-engineered 4.8L V8.

The engine has been force-fed using the G-POWER SK III RS supercharger. The boost pressure is 1.0 bar. The core of the supercharger is the ASA supercharger system which is also used in the Alpina B5S, B6S and B7 models, as well as the B6 GT3 racer. It makes the X5 do the 0-60 mph run in 4.3 seconds and 0-124 mph in 16 seconds to eventually reach a top speed of 177 mph. Gears are selected using a 6-speed automatic transmission while grip and go come from the xDrive AWD system.

Kit used includes a steel high-performance exhaust system, racing catalysts and rear mufflers, and a large-volume aluminum charge air cooling system at the front.

Inside G-POWER fitted accessories like a TYPHOON design speedometer, a sports steering wheel and aluminum bits. Customers can pretty much spec the car do their own personal desires. Each X5 G-POWER TYPHOON RS can be ordered directly or can be created from an existing customer X5.
