G-Power, the maker of some of the fastest and meanest tuned BMW models around, has presented its first take on the brand-new 2012 M5 sedan [F10].
At the heart of G-Power's tune is BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that normally produces 560-horsepower and a peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm.
As a result, the M5 completes the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 3.9 seconds (vs. the standard model's 4.4 seconds) and reaches the 200km/h (124mph) mark in just 11.9 seconds.
To improve handling, G-Power has fitted the M5 with the height-adjustable coil-over suspension "GM5-RS" with nine selectable settings for bound and rebound, along with a new braking system (396 mm discs with six callipers), and 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped around Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (265/30 ZR 21 at the front and 305/25 ZR 21 at the rear).
G-Power noted that it is also working on a successor to the 800-horsepower M5 Hurricane RR, which is considered to be the faster sedan model in the world with a top speed of 372km/h (231mph).
