G-Power BMW X5 Typhoon RS
Brawny wing extensions and strikingly formed front- and rear skirts qualified for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, mark the appearance of the G-POWER TYPHOON RS. The body alteration in OEM-quality made of PU-rim has been developed by the G-POWER designers by using state-of-the-art CAD technology. Therefore, the basic car has been entirely digitalised with a 3D-scanner on the own company premises.
The elegantly formed G-POWER wing extensions at the front- and back axle which are naturally delivered with a perfectly matching inner wing extend the X5 by seven centimetres. They make room for extra-broad 23“ wheels and tyres. The G-POWER SILVERSTONE “forged” aluminium wheels in the dimensions 11Jx23 at the front and 12Jx23 at the back were especially designed for the TYPHOON RS and are the largest available model. Four high-performance tyres measuring 315/25 ZR 23 by the development partner Michelin render optimal traction and sporty handling.
In combination with the extended wings, especially the absolute independently styled G-POWER TYPHOON front skirt, the facial expression of the exclusive SUV is formed. The large air inlets do not only improve the overtaking prestige, they also guarantee an optimised cooling of the engine and the front brakes. Moreover, due to its elaborate shaping, the aerodynamic lifting forces at the front axle could be reduced.
The rear skirt of the TYPHOON RS has been designed like the front skirt and therefore entirely replaces the serial bumpers. Apart from the two striking end pipes of the G-POWER stainless steel sport end muffler, the diffuser also marks the rear appearance. And in combination with the spoiler which is attached to the boot lid and visually prolongs the roof line, the lifting forces at the rear axle are also minimised.
The TYPHOON side skirts do not only provide an aerodynamically favourable transition between the extensions: on their bottom side five LED units which can be activated by remote control or by pulling a handle at the door, illuminate the ground at both sides of the car. At the upper side, stainless steel inserts with an also blue illuminated G-POWER logo are integrated.
The G-POWER SK III RS supercharger system gives the 4.8 litre engine a performance increase of 270 hp / 199 kW to 625 hp / 460 kW at 6,100 r.p.m. and renders a torque increase of 475 Nm to 700 Nm at 5,300 r.p.m. This supercharger technology guarantees - in contrast to turbo engines – a perfect throttle response at any time. In order to achieve this performance, an ASA T1- 723 charger with radial centrifugal clutch is flanged to the engine with a CNC-milled, high-strength framework structure.
The enormous performance potential of the G-POWER SK III RS supercharged engine in combination with the six-gear automatic transmission and the xDrive 4WD enables the SUV to render a driving behaviour which confirms it as a top player in its vehicle class. The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h only takes 4.5 seconds. After 16.0 seconds, the mighty five-door car already reaches a velocity of 200 km/h. The maximum speed is 285 km/h.
The G-POWER TYPHOON RS cockpit can be refined with exclusive accessories like an ergonomically formed sport steering wheel, a speedometer in TYPHOON design and sporty aluminium accessories. Further wishes can be fulfilled with exclusive interior equipments in all possible leather and ultra-suede colors.
