With 575 PS (567hp) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque to begin with, the factory-stock BMW X5 M has sufficient grunt to cope with just about anything., but “sufficient” isn’t one of G-Power’s favorite words.
This is why the tuner unleashed its experience on the Bavarian SUV, making it more powerful than a Lamborghini Aventador.
By using its tuning magic, the G-Power already squeezed 700 PS (689hp) and 905 Nm (667 lb-ft) of torque out of the twin-turbocharged S63 V8 engine powering the sporty 2403 kg (5299 lb-ft) SUV, but is that really enough? Not with 35 years of engineering experience behind you.
That’s why G-Power decided that generating 175 PS (173hp) over the stock variant should make things more fun, bringing the total output to an eye-watering 750 PS (740hp) and 980 Nm (723 lb-ft) of torque. The figures were achieved thanks to a bespoke titanium exhaust system, larger turbochargers, stainless steel downpipes, and G-Power’s Bi-Tronik 2 V3 software upgrade.
Against the stopwatch, the boost in power makes the X5 M blast through the standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds, and accelerate beyond the 300 km/h mark (+186mph). To match the uprated performance, G-Power fitted the SUV with its own GX6M-RS coilover suspension and a 11.0×23-inch HURRICANE RR forged alloy wheels shod with 325/25ZR23 tires.
But wait, there’s more. Or less, in this case. The German tuner acknowledges that not everybody wants to transform their X5 M into a supercar matching brute, that’s why it offers lesser 650 PS (641hp) and 700 PS (689hp) power tune variants.
