G-Power has released a revision for its BMW M5 Touring (E61) upgrade program introduced about three years ago.
The original kit increased output of the twin-supercharged V10 5.0-liter engine to an already impressive 750 HP (551 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) which allowed the hot wagon to do 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds before hitting an electronically-capped top speed of 224 mph (360 km/h).
Fast forward three years and the M5 Touring now delivers 820 HP (603 kW) and 790 Nm (582 lb-ft) which has slashed the sprint time by 0.1s while top speed has increased to a limited 225 mph (362 km/h). G-Power mentions the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) now takes 9.5 seconds while from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) it will need 25.6 seconds.
With this impressive upgrade kit G-Power is celebrating its 30th anniversary and together with the added oomph the M5 Touring now rides on 20-inch Silverstone RS wheels wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. It also has a coilover suspension with nine-way adjustability and a new braking system consisting of 396mm front / 380mm rear discs with six- and four-point calipers, respectively.
The interior cabin features full leather upholstery combined with Alcantara and carbon inserts along with a multimedia system encompassing iPads, an iMac, Apple TV and other similar gadgets. There's also a G-Power application developed exclusively for this model to individually control all of the electric-operated components.
The car showcased in these photos is available for 242,016 EUR (without VAT) while the tuner's V10 supercharger systems begin at 7,300 EUR (VAT excluded).
