Tuning firm G-Power has released a new performance package for the BMW X5 which boosts the 4.8-liter V8 engine’s output from 355 hp and 475 Nm to 525 hp (386 kW) and 600 Nm of torque.
Tuning firm G-Power has released a new Typhoon performance package for the BMW X5 which features an aggressive exterior styling kit as well as the addition of a supercharger.
Under the hood, G-power modifies the 4.8-liter V8 engine's mapping software, installs new high flow fuel injectors, and adds a belt driven ASA T1-521 hd supercharger which boosts the engine's output from 355 hp and 475 Nm to 525 hp (386 kW) and 600 Nm of torque. The company also outfits the Typhoon with a two-piece carbon-fiber intake manifold, an aluminum intercooler, and a stainless steel G-Power high-performance exhaust with racing catalysts. Thanks to all these changes, the Typhoon sprints from 0-100 km/h in 5.0 seconds and has a top speed of 275 km/h (171 mph).
In order to give this high-performance model the styling it deserves, G-Power adds an extensive body kit that features an aggressive front apron with massive air intakes and highly stylized fender flares which provide additional clearance for the Silverstone Forged Edition forged wheels which are 11Jx23 front and 12Jx23 rear. Out back, the Typhoon features a diffuser, new rear apron, and two massive center-mounted tailpipes that each measure 114 mm in diameter (about 4.5"). Another interesting feature is the aerodynamic rocker panels which boast five integrated blue LED lights that are activated by the vehicle's keyless fob or by pulling on a door handle.
[Correction] 0-60 mph time is 5.0 sec and not 6.2 as originally stated.
