G-Power is known as one of the few BMW-tuning specialists, and they now have fresh upgrades for the newest 5 Series that is already quite powerful to begin with. What the tuner did was that they installed an additional engine control module that lets the car access more power from its engine.
Specially made for BMW’s 3.0 liter inline six diesel engine, the D-Tronik 5 V1 can help give it a major upgrade in output. To be more specific, when the M550d xDrive is tuned, it gets 59 horsepower (44 kilowatts) more than the stock model, adding up to 453 horsepower (338 kilowatts), and 74 pound-feet (100 Newton metres) more torque, totaling with 634 pound-feet (860 Newton metres). Similarly, the 540d can be maximized to 380 horsepower (283 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Nm) of torque after the upgrade, compared to the standard version which only had an output of 315 horsepower (235 kilowatts) and 502 pound-feet (680 Nm).
That’s not all though, there is also the Bi-Tronik 5 V1, but this time, it is for the 3.0 liter inline six gasoline fueled mill. It can push the 540i to 394 horsepower (294 kilowatts), that is 59 horsepower (44 kilowatts) more, as for the torque, it goes up by 66 pound feet (90 Nm), now hitting 398 pound-feet (540 Newton metres).Read the entire article G-Power tunes BMW M550d’s engine for extra horsepower and torque
If you want to channel your inner speed freak, then this modified E92-generation M3 might get your senses tingling with excitement. Whether you intend to take it for a highway cruise or do laps at any nearby racetrack, this may serve as good news to you.
G-Power, a notable German car tuning manufacturer, worked its magic on the BMW M3 and unleashed the sports car's full potential by further customizing the vehicle and creating the road legal speed monster with the moniker "M3 GT2 S Hurricane". We do agree with this storm reference as a perfectly valid description.
With this BMW M3 GT2 S Hurricane, G-Power has proven to everyone once again at how it has mastered tuning the sporty line-ups of the German automaker models, further confirming why it is the ideal partner for someone who hopes to produce a professional Clubsport car. The German tuning company revamped the M3's already outstanding V8 powertrain standard.Read the entire article G-Power BMW M3 (E92) GT2 S Hurricane offers 205 mph top speed with 709 hp output
Doing more than just tuning shiny new cars, G-Power rolls out with a new line of Hurricane RR wheels for certain BMW M and Mercedes-AMG models. The new set of Hurricanes come in 23-inch, 22-inch and 21-inch wheel sizes. Unlike most conventional aluminum wheels, the Hurricane forged wheels are predominantly more lightweight because of the higher strength forged aluminum material.
According to the German-tuning specialist, the Hurricane’s lower mass, lightweight components will improve road traction to give the driver a better control of the vehicle. Since road traction performs an important role in driving, it also means there will be lesser weight transfer towards the outer wheel when taking corners.
Nevertheless, the G-Power Hurricane wheels are made with T6 6061 aluminum grade material. The T6 is a heat-treatment technology that spreads the “forces” within the aluminum to restore the characteristics of the alloy wheels. In fact, these strong yet lightweight alloys that come out of their CNC-Controlled milling machine are similar to those being used in aerospace industry.Read the entire article G-Power offers new Hurricane RR wheels for BMW M and Mercedes-AMG
This dynamic-looking roadster looks like your ordinary BMW M6 Convertible (F12). Wrapped in a brown metallic exterior color finish, this BMW M6 Convertible really looks like the average M6 Convertible. But wait until it gets on the road, as this brown BMW M6 Convertible -- as tuned by G-Power -- is a sleeper that could go toe to toe with a Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet in terms of top speed.
Don’t be mistaken; we’re not describing the BMW M6 Convertible as slow. After all, the BMW M6 Convertible is the performance version of the drop-top 6 Series. The most powerful BMW 6 Series Convertible is served by a 4.4-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine that is able to deliver at most 443 hp (330 kW or 450 PS) of output available between 5,500 rpm and 6,000 rpm, as well as up to 650 Nm of torque available between 2,000 rpm and 4,500 rpm. This is enough to send the most powerful BMW 6 Series Convertible accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 250 km/h (155.4 mph).
The less dynamic version of the BMW 6 Series Convertible – powered by a 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder – features 315 hp (235 kW) of max output and 450 Nm of peak torque. This level of power is already aplenty, as it is enough to make the BMW 6 Series Convertible sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.4 seconds and reach a max speed of 250 km/h (155.4 mph).Read the entire article G-Power turns BMW M6 (F12) Convertible into an 800-PS sleeper roadster
Each time tuning company G-Power unveils its work, we could expect a tuned car that is significantly more potent than the standard unit it was based on. This has been the case for several of BMW’s high-performance cars – all of which were made more powerful by the incredible tuning work of G-Power.
The latest of G-Power’s works include, however, another German premium carmaker – Mercedes-Benz. For its latest project, G-Power has picked the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car. In the non-tuned form, the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the AMG GT sports car only delivers 462 hp of max output and 600 Nm (440 lb-ft.) of peak torque.
This level of power already allows the AMG GT sports car to do a very quick sprint, accelerating from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.0 seconds while reaching a limited top speed of 189 mph. For many, this level of performance is already incredible. But the people at G-Power knew they could improve the dynamics of this engine and make the AMG GT sports car a better performer.Read the entire article G-Power Mercedes-AMG GT delivers 610 hp of output and 755 Nm of torque
A new level of performance awaits the new Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe, thanks to the new G-Power Bi-Tronik 5 V1 Plug & Play module. As if the V8, 5.5L, twinturbo is not already powerful, the German auto tuner has thought of combining luxury and performance by adding this unique power module to the Coupe’s engine.
As we said earlier, the Mercedes-AMG S63 has become more powerful. We’re talking about the new 705 hp from the previous 585hp. For this car, the G-Power module is tapped as soon as the engine is engaged in full throttle.
The mapping system gets activated and builds a new surge of power to the engine around this time. However, it won’t fully activate when the coolant goes beyond its normal maximum temperature. The module only becomes active again when a certain level of oil temperature is specified. So this is why the Bi-Tronik Plug & Play module really makes a lot of sense.Read the entire article G-Power Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe boasts 705 PS and 738 lb-ft. of torque
The BMW M2 Coupe – for all its sporty and elegant glory – has been the subject of modification projects by several tuning firms. Now, G-Power, a German tuning company, has decided that it is now its turn to present its own version of the beloved M2 coupe.
The most glaring change to the BMW M2 coupe -- as done by G-Power -- concerns its M inline 6-cylinder N55 engine. Released in 2011, the N55 engine earned the Ward’s Auto Best Engine of the Year award for its class three years in a row. Even though it has been replaced by BMW’s B58 engine, the N55 engine remains one of the most beloved powerplants by BMW enthusiasts.
This compact M inline 6-cylinder engine is able to produce 272 kW (370 hp) of max output and 465 Nm of peak torque. Since the BMW M2 coupe weighs around 1,570 kg, it has a weight-to-power ratio of 5.5 kg/kW. Top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h. This engine with a capacity of 2,979 cc could accelerate the M2 coupe from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds.Read the entire article G-Power unveils tuned BMW M2 (F87) with 410 PS of power output
Back in 2011, BMW introduced the M3 CRT (Carbon Racing Technology), a limited edition of the M3 sedan, which brought weight savings of 45 kg over the standard model. BMW built only 67 units, each powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine generating 450 hp (331 kW) and 440 Nm of torque.
The M3 CRT was capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds and had a top speed electronically limited at 290 km/h or 180 mph. The BMW M3 GTS made its debut in 2009 and was a track-focused version of the M3 Coupe.
The M3 GTS was powered by a 4.4-liter V8 that delivered 450 hp and it could sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, while top speed was 305 km/h or 189.5 mph. The V8-powered M3 is now history as BMW introduced the new M3 model that is powered by a 3.0-liter high-revving in-line six-cylinder engine that generates 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.Read the entire article G-Power boosts the BMW M3 GTS, M3 CRT to 650 hp
BMW tuner G-Power has launched its version of the 1-Series M Coupe -- the newest and smallest member of the M range. This upgraded version consists of the 1M Coupe's 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine at its center. This comprehensive tuning package raises the pulse of the force-fed powerplant with reprogrammed software, flow optimized downpipes, increased capacity for the boost cooling system and a lightweight custom exhaust system built from titanium that removes 20kg (44 pounds) over the stock exhaust.
These revisions increase its power from 335hp (340PS) and 450Nm or 500Nm (369 lb-ft) with overboost, to 429hp (435PS) and 590Nm (435 lb-ft). As a result, the 1-Series M Coupe by G-Power is able to accelerate from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 300km/h (186mph).
BMW coupe has been equipped with a height-adjustable G coil-over suspension that has nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound. It also receives a top-performing braking system with six-piston calipers and 396mm discs.Read the entire article G-Power does the Bmw 1-Series M Coupe
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.Read the entire article 2012 Bmw M5 (F10) gets 620 hp from G-Power! The development continues…
Everyone has high expectations for what the tuning specialists of G-Power have prepared for BMW’s M3 GTS. The base car of the M3 GTS has a lightweight body and delivers up to 450hp, making it comparable to some Porsches. The stock model could be considered one of the best 3-Series models of the present generation. It’s believed that three units of this model were taken in by G-Power.
By installing the “Sporty Drive” supercharger system, the model’s performance received a boost from 450 hp to 635 hp and 630 Nm of torque, due to the ASA supercharger that was featured in the ALPINA B5S, B6S and B7S models as well as in the ALPINA B6 GT3. G-Power also made use of lightweight, all-titanium exhaust system, which significantly reduced the exhaust back pressure.
To adjust to the supercharged setup, the ECU system also needed to be reworked. BMW had already reduced the weight of the M3 GTS drastically but G-Power was able to lower it further by using a carbon-fiber airbox. G-Power boasts that its package includes a loud exhaust and it also ensures that it has an output of 635hp.Read the entire article G-Power does the 2011 Bmw M3 GTS
G-POWER has prepared a modification package for the BMW X6 M that features a TYPHOON S body kit, a titanium exhaust system and a 725hp output. Derived from the TYPHOON wide-body kit, the TYPHOON S body kit boosts cooling performance of up to 15% for the 4.4l V8 twin-turbo unit that powers the BMW X6 M.
It helps raise its output by 170hp to 725hp. The G-POWER X6 M TYPHOON S has a distinct appearance due mainly to the redesigned front skirt that completely replaces the original part. The front skirt with large air intakes is inspired by the G-POWER TYPHOON wide-body kit.
To balance out the look of the X6 TYPHOON S, it has been fitted with the G-POWER bonnet that’s made completely from carbonfiber. The G-POWER add-ons to the standard sills offer a visual transition between the wheel arches, which are filled with forged 3-part G-POWER SILVERSTONE RS aluminum wheels (measuring 11x23 and 12x23 inches (also offered in 22-inch).Read the entire article G-Power Typhoon S is world’s most powerful Bmw X6 M model
The tuning specialists at G-Power have recently released a new TYPHOON X5 M project that offers a Typhoon wide body kit for the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and boosts its performance even further. G-Power gave the BMW X5 M a new exterior package that features an optimized air flow that improves cooling by about 15%.
As a result, the tuner was able to install various performance parts that boost the power up to 725 hp at 6,000 rpm and the torque to 890 Nm at 1,500 rpm. The torque is electronically limited and was increased to 1,000 Nm. The X5 M’s standard transmission was also modified.
The vehicle’s twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 unit is fitted with a stainless steel exhaust that uses sport catalytic converters and special exhaust manifolds for the turbochargers.Read the entire article G-Power Typhoon takes the Bmw X5 M to another level
G-Power upped the potency of Bmw's 4.0-liter V8, like the one found in the M3 from 414 hp (309 kW), by adding a supercharger raising power yield to a whopping 635 hp (473 kW)! Power like this is what one would expect from the holder of the title of the world's fastest street-legal sedan. The rationale behind the addition of the forced induction was to provide the V8 extra low-end grunt together with an overall performance boost.
Also available from G-Power is the naturally ventilated 550 hp V10 from the M5 which they can install on the M3 with a supercharger that will provide a 730 hp yield. On the other hand, G-Power is not only all about extreme power figures.
It also provides less frantic selections including the EVO I kit that boosts power up by 103hp, putting total horses to 517 (386kW). This is achieved via supercharger/intercooler arrangement, with larger fuel injectors, an optimized stainless steel exhaust system and the latest electronics.Read the entire article Bmw M3 Cabrio by G-Power
When G-POWER engineers began designing the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS, the goal was to build what would be BMW’s greatest car. To get this particular project under way, the engineers chose the BMW M6 to form the foundation considering that it is presently the brand’s most exclusive model.
Combining this with the advanced products offered by G-POWER, they were able to make an excellent sports car. Powering the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS is the twin-supercharger V10 SK III RS engine that can deliver 750 hp / 552 kW. With this, it is able to reach a 367,4 km/h maximum speed, ensuring this car’s spot in the super car group.
Other features include a Carbon-Ceramic break system, a suspension kit that can be adjusted individually, and the multipart widebody kit. There is of course the G-POWER 21-inch wheels that come with the MICHELIN tyres.

The tuning specialist G-Power has taken an interest in the latest 420hp V8 Bmw M3. G-Power, however, has only given the car some somewhat subtle improvements, the most remarkable of which is the addition of custom-built light supercharger from ASA (which are also used by Alpina) with a boost of 0.3 bar.
Together with the new intercooler and performance exhaust system, the 4.0-liter V8's power output has been raised to 500hp and top torque, which was originally 400Nm has been raised by 80Nm more.
The tuner claims that the supercharged M3 Coupe that comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox can sprint from 0-200km/h (124mph) in only 13.5 seconds in contrast to the 15.8 seconds of the regular M3. The electronic speed limiter can be removed as per customer request, in which case the car can reach a top speed of 320km/h.Read the entire article Bmw M3 Tornado by G-Power
