2012 Bmw M5 (F10) gets 620 hp from G-Power! The development continues…

It appears that G-Power, the well-known German tuner specialized in tuning Bmw cars, is hard at work on the new Bmw M5 (F10). According to the official press release, the engineers are currently busy developing this car and the first results are very promising. G-Power says that the goal for the first stage of output enhancement for the M5 is expected to set 620 hp.

Of course, this is just the beginning because G-Power will definitely obtain over 700 hp from the new 4.4-liter V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo package.

For those who don’t know, the engine delivers 560 hp as standard and the extra 60 hp is just a small step.

Moreover, the engine delivers 680 Newton metres (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm, and can push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.0 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h / 155 mph (305 km/h / 190 mph with M Driver’s Package). Furthermore, the 2012 Bmw M5 is offered with new systems such as Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance and automatically activated parking mode.

Looking at how the front apron of the BMW M5 has been designed, it gives a clue of just how powerful the V8 engine fitted to it is. The signature double-kidney grille is still there and this is where the bonnet’s curve lines meet to form a V. Its standard M black slats remain present as well but now have a more wide spread configuration similar to the three air intakes that are placed on the front apron’s lower part.

These slats have been arranged in a manner that highlights the needed cooling air of the engine that has been positioned at the back of the grille. Additionally, the way the air intakes have been display, on different levels, results in that needed depth which emphasizes not only the forward-thrusting look of this Saloon but also its dynamism. Indeed, the body’s design manages to show the unique qualities present on the M5. This is because while it has the style and the dynamic proportions similar to the brand’s 5-Series Saloon, they have been improved even further by putting in design features that are specific to the M series.

Each modification was chosen carefully putting in mind that they needed to be able to meet the technical demands of the new model. This in fact became the key element when it comes to the overall concept of this Saloon. Subtly emphasizing the remarkable potential are the unique design elements placed on the front, the rear, and even the sides. These same elements also give it that excellent authenticity.

One of the design enhancements is that the central aperture is now projected forward even more. The functional significant is helped further along through the car’s width as it goes out to the surface of the road and even to the curve line and their protruding form. There are two side air intakes that come in a curved shape. Being placed on the mode’s outer edges, they highlight the wide track.

They also fill the spaces located in the front apron, which in previous models was where the fog lamps were placed. Just at the bottom portion of the front end, there are air channeling flaps, and since they were developed on the track, they guarantee that aerodynamics is optimized.
