BMW M5 with 900PS From G-Power
Car tuners are constantly trying their best to squeeze out more power from factory engines to rival other tuners and use torque or horsepower figures to impress car enthusiast and more importantly, get rich customers to buy their insanely powerful cars.
A mild tune of about 10 to 15 per cent more power to any car does not get noticed or any publicity as this is what all other tuners are doing. The objective is to get 25 per cent or more and to ‘best’ the power delivery of the more powerful version to come out of the auto manufacturers factory.
This is why experienced European car tuner, G-Power took an already very powerful and reliable BMW M5 and decided to give it insane power delivery. Our question is this. Will it be reliable? We don’t want to be going back to G-Power every few months for a check-up when the dashboard lights up with warning lights.
G-Power has managed to extract a whole lot more power from this 2020 M5. To be exact, an impressive 900 PS and a maximum torque of 1,050 Nm from the BMW M5. Driving performance is mentioned to be very good as even better performance delivers even better driving smiles. The engineers at G-Power relied on the tried and tested mix of new hardware and adapted software for this newly named G5M Hurricane RR.
So, the G-Power engineers did not just remap and install new turbochargers. They started with new forged pistons, modified connecting rods and an optimized cooling package installed inside the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 factory engine.
The factory-installed turbochargers were removed to give way to two more powerful upgrade chargers with enlarged intake and exhaust areas and CNC-milled housings. In addition, G-Power installed a stainless steel exhaust system with new downpipes and sports catalysts, including four 101-millimeter tailpipes coated with carbon. Targeted reinforcements were designed to improve the durability of the drive train. G-Power then equipped the motor control with new software so that all components work together optimally.
A new carbon bonnet with Venturi with air opening were installed together with a new set of fenders with air outlets. The new hood improves the ventilation of the engine compartment and also sharpens the look of the M5. In-house forged wheels in the dimensions 9×21 and 10.5×21 inches with 285/30 and 295/30 tires reduce the unsprung mass and are also very sexy looking. A fully adjustable coil over kit which allows lowering by up to 30 millimeters guarantees perfect traction.
G-Power charges 115,000 euros for the conversion of the BMW M5 to the G-Power G5M Hurricane RR. The retail price (on the road, without insurance) for this New BMW M5 in Malaysia is RM 942,759.86 which means this insane tune will push the price of this M5 to almost RM1.5 million.
PRESS RELEASE: The 4.4‑litre V8 engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology generates 441 kW/600 hp in the BMW M5 and 460 kW/625 hp in the BMW M5 Competition. The eight‑speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic comes as standard, as does M xDrive all-wheel drive, which also includes a 2WD setting for pure rear-wheel drive.
The BMW M5 sprints from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.4 seconds and passes 200 km/h (124 mph) with just 11.1 seconds on the clock. The BMW M5 Competition reaches both marks a fraction more quickly: 100 km/h (62 mph) is up in 3.3 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.8 seconds.
Prices in Germany will start at €120,900 for the BMW M5 and €129,900 for the BMW M5 Competition.
