Another day, another G-Power example of awesomeness. The team has released a revision for its BMW M5 Touring (E61) upgrade program, originally introduced about three years ago. The original kit had increased output of the twin-supercharged V10 5.0-liter engine to 750 HP (551 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft), which meant that the BMW wagon could do 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, before topping at 224 mph (360 km/h).
Nowadays, the M5 Touring delivers 820 HP (603 kW) and 790 Nm (582 lb-ft), which means 0.1s faster sprint time while top speed has increased to a limited 225 mph (362 km/h). According to G-Power, the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) now takes 9.5 seconds while from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) the BMW will need 25.6 seconds. This cool ride is G-Power’s way of celebrating its 30th anniversary, and we do appreciate their style.
The M5 Touring was fitted with 20-inch Silverstone RS wheels wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Added, are a coil-over suspension with nine-way adjustment settings and a new braking system consisting of 396mm front / 380mm rear discs with six- and four-point calipers, respectively.
Inside the cabin, the BMW features full leather upholstery combined with Alcantara and carbon inserts along with a multimedia system encompassing iPads, an iMac, Apple TV and other similar gadgets. Consider me completely satisfied! But, there’s more, since the G-Power application – developed exclusively for this model – enables you to individually control all of the electric-operated components.
