G-Power, the Bayern-based BMW tuning specialist, doesn’t do things by halves, as its latest program for the BMW X6 M verifies.

The imposing SUV is already a formidable machine, powered by a bi-turbo 4.4 L V8 but, thanks to G-Power’s Bi-Tronik V3 performance kit and wide-body aero package, it become much hairier.

Visually, the high quality PU-RIM body kit (€ 13,361) consists of muscular flared wheel arch extensions that add 7 cm to the X6 M’s width, a front skirt with colossal air intakes, sill extensions, a high-level tailgate spoiler and lower multi-piece rear wing constructed from carbon fibre. Finally, there’s a rear skirt with an integrated diffuser which accommodates those twin 114 mm tailpipes. The carbon fibre vented hood is € 5.865 extra. G-Power offers a choice of wheels: the Silverstone RS and the Edition. Both are 23-inches in diameter and come wrapped in Michelin tyres at a price of € 8,865.

Other chassis upgrades include a GX6M-RS coilover suspension kit for € 3,029 and an impressive ceramic braking system for € 26,240, which uses 396 mm front discs gripped by 6-piston calipers and 380 mm rears with 4-piston calipers.

The Bi-Tronik V3 performance kit is priced at € 13,526 and includes a remapped ECU, stainless steel manifolds, exhaust system and high-flow sports cats. Those changes result in 533 kW (725 hp) and 890 Nm (656 lb-ft) of torque – a 125 kW (170 hp) and 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) improvement. Torque has been electrically limited in order to prolong the life of the reinforced automatic transmission.

On the road, the Typhoon hits 100 km/h (62 mph) is just 4.2 seconds, while top speed is rated at over 300 km/h (186 mph).
