Whatever it is, it has a ton of power.
Whether you call it a Sport Utility Vehicle, Sport Activity Coupe, Crossover, truckster, or sports car, there’s only one thing that matters with the BMW X6 M: it’s fast. For a vehicle in this super-niche class to go 0-62 mph in under five seconds, it means it’s packing a ton of heat under the hood. G-Power has made the BMW X6 M into such a force with its upgrade program that it had to name it after a destructive weather pattern.
The G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon packs a tuned version of the BMW S63, twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that puts out an impressive 547 horsepower and 500 lb-ft. of torque in stock form. G-Power gave the force-fed 4.4-liter a new stainless steel exhaust system with dual centrally-mounted 114 mm tailpipes to reduce backpressure and a new ECU software tune. This equates to a whopping 725 horsepower and 656 lb-ft. of torque at 1,500 RPM. G-Power had to electronically limit the torque from a maximum 737 lb-ft. of torque to prevent damage to the drivetrain and gearbox. With all that power, the G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon can accelerate to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of over 186 mph.
The new G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon isn’t just about power; it also has commanding looks that make it a force to be reckoned with on the road. The front fascia is incredibly powerful as it stares ahead with its new bumper, enlarged intakes, and spoiler. These aforementioned aerodynamics work with the new carbon fiber Ventrui hood and its numerous vents and intakes with “Dynamic Venting Technology” to reduce temperatures and improve airflow inside the engine bay. Both the front and rear fenders have been extended by 70 mm and are connected by a pair of side skirts to give the BMW X6 M Typhoon a brawny look. The rear boasts new roof- and trunk-mounted carbon fiber spoilers along with a larger bumper with integrated diffuser and exhaust outlets for some added downforce.
Tying in the dynamic performance and athletic looks of the SAC are new chassis upgrades from G-Power. The front and rear axles wear new G-Power three-piece Silverstone RS forged wheels that measure 11.0 x 23 up front and 12.0 x 23 at the rear with 315/25ZR23 Michelin high-performance tires. Behind the wheels sit the G-Power ceramic sport brake system with six-piston calipers clenching down on massive 40 cm ceramic discs to reliably bring the Typhoon to a halt. The final touch is a new in-house coilover system that reduces the center of gravity by 30 mm to improve handling even further.
Inside, the sporty nature of the G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon mixes sport with luxury. Blue tinted carbon fiber, grey alcantara, and other high-tech materials grace the entire cabin. Other new accessories such as an ergonomically-shaped sports steering wheel, G-Power gauge cluster, and rollout iPads integrated into the front seat backrests add a special touch of technology and speed.
The new G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon is currently available as a complete conversion or as individual upgrades and takes the Sport Activity Coupe to a new level of performance.
