G-Power tunes the BMW X5 to create Typhoon

Euro-tuner G-Power has now laid its hands on the latest X5, offering an upgrade package for the road-going SUV, calling it the G-Power TYPHOON, complete with a massive power boost that makes it the manliest X5 around.

Muscular fender flares and strikingly styled aprons and spoilers front and back, all designed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, dominate the appearance of the G-Power TYPHOON. The body conversion components and the tools to make them were developed by the G-Power designers using the latest CAD technologies. The entire base car was scanned in-house using a 3D scanner. The TYPHOON components are manufactured in OEM quality from PUR-R-Rim plastics.

The curved G-Power fender flares on front and rear axle come complete with matching fender liners and add seven centimeters to the width of the X5. They create the space necessary for extra-wide wheels and tires. The largest version features Silverstone Forged Edition forged wheels in size 11Jx23 in front and in size 12Jx23 on the rear axle. These wheels were custom-developed for the TYPHOON. High-performance tires in size 315/25 ZR 23 front and back from development partner Michelin provide optimal traction and sporty handling.

In cooperation with ASA Engineering, a world-renowned engineering company and OEM supplier of high-tech superchargers, G-POWER has developed a supercharger system for the V8 four-valve engine. The G-POWER SK III compressor system increases power output of the 4.8L engine by 170 hp to 525 hp at 6100 rpm and boosts peak torque to 442 lb-ft at 5300 rpm.

A two-piece carbon-fiber intake manifold with large free-flow cross sections, a generously dimensioned aluminum intercooler in the bow of the X5 and the fully stainless-steel high-performance exhaust with racing catalysts and rear muffler comprise the engine peripherals.

The powerful five-door sprints from rest to 62 mph in just 5 seconds and reaches the 124 mph mark after just 18.4 seconds. Top speed is 172 mph.

The TYPHOON cockpit can be upgraded with exclusive accessories such as an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, a TYPHOON-design speedometer and a number of sporty aluminum accessories. Requests for an even more customized interior can be fulfilled with exclusive leather and Alcantara interiors in any color imaginable.
