German tuner G-Power unveils their latest upgrade to the BMW M5 Touring (E61) tuning program. The new tuning package brings the E61 M5 to 820 horsepower.
The original kit revealed three years ago increased output of the twin-supercharged V10 5.0-liter engine to 750 HP (551 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). At the time, it was reported that the M5 Touring ran from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 224 mph (360 km/h).
With its 820 HP (603 kW) and 790 Nm (582 lb-ft), the same E61 M5 Touring runs to 62 mph now in 4.4 seconds. G-Power mentions the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) now takes 9.5 seconds while from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) it will need 25.6 seconds. Top speed was increased to a limited 225 mph (362 km/h).
Visually the M5 Hurricane RR Touring gets some upgrades as well. The car now sits on 20-inch Silverstone RS wheels wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. A coilover suspension with nine-way adjustability and a new braking system consisting of 396mm front / 380mm rear discs with six- and four-point calipers are fitted to the car as well.
Inside the cabin, G-Power branded elements are plenty: full leather upholstery combined with Alcantara and carbon inserts along with a multimedia system encompassing iPads, an iMac, Apple TV and other similar gadgets. Tech lovers even get a G-Power iOS app that controls different components of the car.
The car showcased in these photos is available for 242,016 EUR (without VAT) while the tuner’s V10 supercharger systems begin at 7,300 EUR (VAT excluded).
