Engineers at G-Power have created a new set of mods for the BMW 7-Series F01.  The tuning outfit will be selling the G-Power 760i Storm as a made-to-order level of customization for new buyers.

The modifications rotate around changes to the turbocharger unit.  The 6.0-liter V12 engine is normally mated with the bi-turbo "TwinPower" stock unit from BMW.  Instead, G-Power tapped engineers at ASA to create radial compressors (turbo charger compressor units) that work off the crankshaft, thus increasing their output.

Turbo boost pressure goes up from 0.5 bar to 0.9 bar, and the added injection valves and exhaust lead to an extra 181 PS (133 kW / 179 hp).  The car now has access to 725 PS (533 kW / 715 hp) and up to 1000 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque from 2,000 rpm, in part thanks to a remapped engine computer.  Changes were also made to the OEM eight-speed transmission.

0-100 km/h now takes 4.2 seconds, with 200 km/h (124 mph) being recorded in 11.9 seconds.  Top speed registers at 345 km/h (214 mph).  These speeds are also helped by new aerodynamics at the front skirt, bonnet, side skirts, doors, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler.  With the new springs, the car is dropped by 30 mm.  The car now rides on 9.5x22 front and 10.5x22 three-piece aluminum wheels wrapped in Michelin tires.

Only 10 units of the G-Power 760i Storm will be produced.  Pricing was not disclosed.
