G-Power BMW M5 revealed

Following on from last year’s sneak preview, G-Power, the Bayern-based BMW tuning specialist, has officially revealed its program for the F10M M5.

Adding its own G-POWER Bi-Tronik III software to the car, G-Power takes the turbocharged 4.4 V8’s output from 418 kW (560 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb/ft) of torque to a more appetising 477 kW (640 hp) and 777 Nm (573 lb/ft). That translates to a new 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just 3.9 seconds, while 0-200 km/h takes a mere 11.9 seconds. G-Power also fits its ‘Deeptone’ stainless steel rear muffler with twin-double tailpipes.

Keeping that extra power in check is an adjustable GM5-RS coilover suspension kit which features nine selectable settings for both bound and rebound, while the company’s brake upgrade system consists of six-piston calips, larger surface pads and 396 mm ceramic brake discs providing minimum fade at high temparatures. The wheels are G-Power’s 21 inch Silverstone RS items, covered in 265/30 and 305/25 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.

G-Power promises more power for the M5, hinting that development of its M5 Hurricane II program is in ‘full force’ and that it may just eclipse the awesome 597 kW (800 hp) M5 Hurricane RR. Scary stuff.
