186 mph Monster.
In March of 2011, G-Power started off the year with a bang by showcasing their new 725 horsepower BMW X6 M Typhoon S. Now, that same 725 horsepower monster is considered to be the “little” version of the conversion as the German tuner has just unveiled a widebody version of the X6 M Typhoon.
The new G-Power X6 M Typhoon body kit adds an astonishing seven centimeters to both the front and rear axles to create a powerful and intimidating look that’s backed up by725 horses. The entire kit was designed with OEM quality thanks to CAD and 3D scanning of the entire vehicle. Between each flared wheel arch are aerodynamic skirts that hide a set of five LED entry lights for visibility at night.
The new G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon body kit also focused on improving cooling for the Sport Activity Vehicle. The front skirt has been designed with larger air intakes and a new venturi hood with Dynamic Venting technology helps to quickly remove heat from the engine compartment. The rear of the G-Power Typhoon body kit features a roof spoiler with carbon wing, two fixed rear hatch spoilers, and a rear skirt with diffuser for better stability at high speeds. A new, four-part underbody panel system helps to reduce friction underneath the X6 M and improve aerodynamic qualities.
Filling in the muscular fender flares are new wheels, brakes, and an upgraded suspension for better overall performance. G-Power Silverstone Edition forged wheels are the featured wheel type and measure 11J x 23 at the front and 12J x 23 at the rear axle. Michelin high-performance tires in a 315/25 ZR 23 fitment help to improve traction and work with a new, 30 mm lower coilover suspension with adjustable rebound and compression to improve handling. Bringing things to a halt are G-Power BMW carbon ceramic brakes with fade resistant 6-piston calipers and 396 mm rotors up front and 4-piston calipers with 380 mm rotors at the rear.
The 4.4-liter V-8 engine that powers the BMW X6 M gained a significant amount of power due to the optimized cooling systems from the G-Power Typhoon body kit. The increased air sent to the engine allowed for more efficient power. The ECU system was tuned to respond to different temperatures in the engine compartment for thermally balanced performance. A completely new exhaust system with flow optimized manifolds between turbochargers, optimized connection pipes, and sport catalytic converters improve exhaust gas flow and help to achieve 725 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 656 lb-ft. of torque from 1,500 RPM from just 1,500 RPM. At customer request, G-Power can upgrade the stock transmission so that it can handle the maximum amount of 737 lb-ft. of torque.
After the upgraded engine, the G-Power BMW X6 M Typhoon can accelerate to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds and reach speeds over 186 mph.
As an option, G-Power can also upgrade the entire interior of the X6 M Typhoon with alcantara, ergonomically designed sports steering wheels, and a wide range of accessories with customized stitching.

The wheel and tire package can be purchased for € 8,865.55 and the suspension for € 3,029. The 725 horsepower engine is available for € 13,526.
