(from G-Power Press
Release) Brawny wing extensions and strikingly formed
front- and rear skirts qualified for maximum aerodynamic efficiency,
mark the appearance of the G-POWER TYPHOON RS. The body alteration
in OEM-quality made of PU-rim has been developed by the G-POWER
designers by using state-of-the-art CAD technology. Therefore, the
basic car has been entirely digitalised with a 3D-scanner on the own
The elegantly formed G-POWER wing extensions at the front- and back
axle which are naturally delivered with a perfectly matching inner
wing extend the X5 by seven centimetres. They make room for
extra-broad 23“ wheels and tyres. The G-POWER SILVERSTONE “forged”
aluminium wheels in the dimensions 11Jx23 at the front and 12Jx23 at
the back were especially designed for the TYPHOON RS and are the
largest available model. Four high-performance tyres measuring
315/25 ZR 23 by the development partner Michelin render optimal
traction and sporty handling.
In combination with the extended wings, especially the absolute
independently styled G-POWER TYPHOON front skirt, the facial
expression of the exclusive SUV is formed. The large air inlets do
not only improve the overtaking prestige, they also guarantee an
optimised cooling of the engine and the front brakes. Moreover, due
to its elaborate shaping, the aerodynamic lifting forces at the
front axle could be reduced.
The rear skirt of the TYPHOON RS has been designed like the front
skirt and therefore entirely replaces the serial bumpers. Apart from
the two striking end pipes of the G-POWER stainless steel sport end
muffler, the diffuser also marks the rear appearance. And in
combination with the spoiler which is attached to the boot lid and
visually prolongs the roof line, the lifting forces at the rear axle
are also minimised.
The TYPHOON side skirts do not only provide an aerodynamically
favourable transition between the extensions: on their bottom side
five LED units which can be activated by remote control or by
pulling a handle at the door, illuminate the ground at both sides of
the car. At the upper side, stainless steel inserts with an also
blue illuminated G-POWER logo are integrated.
Another proof for the elaborate construction of the G-POWER TYPHOON
broad-built version for the BMW X5 which is offered as a kit from €
12.185,-- (net price) is the four-part underbody cladding.
Matching the dynamic appearance, G-POWER offers an extremely strong
motorisation for the BMW X5 xDrive48i. In co-operation with ASA, the
world-wide renowned developer and OEM-supplier of high-tech
superchargers, a mechanic charging system for the eight-cylinder
four-valve engine has been created.
The G-POWER SK III RS supercharger system gives the 4.8 litre engine
a performance increase of 270 hp / 199 kW to 625 hp / 460 kW at
6,100 r.p.m. and renders a torque increase of 475 Nm to 700 Nm at
5,300 r.p.m. This supercharger technology guarantees - in contrast
to turbo engines – a perfect throttle response at any time. In order
to achieve this performance, an ASA T1- 723 charger with radial
centrifugal clutch is flanged to the engine with a CNC-milled,
high-strength framework structure. The supercharger which is powered
by a crankshaft via the multi-rib belt has an oil flow which is
integrated into the engine oil circulation for lubrication. The
boost pressure is 1.0 bar.
This performance explosion originates in the core part of the
G-POWER supercharger systems, the entirely newly developed T1-723
ASA radial supercharger. Moreover, supercharger systems are also
used in the ALPINA models B5S, B6S and B7, and of course also in the
ALPINA B6 GT3 race car, in which the ASA supercharger impressively
confirmed its reliability and quality in the “Green Hell” at the
24-hour race at the Nürburgring this year. The exclusive use of
components in OEM-quality is an essential part of the G-POWER
philosophy and the basis for extraordinarily high quality,
reliability and durability of G-POWER products.
The two-part carbon intake air duct with large, aerodynamic
transverse sections, a large-volume aluminium charge air cooling
system in the front of the X5 and a G-POWER SPEEDFLOW
high-performance exhaust system which is entirely made of stainless
steel and includes racing headers, racing catalysts and end
mufflers, form the peripheral equipment of the supercharged engine
and moreover render an earthy sound which emphasises the acoustics
of the eight-cylinder engine.
Also, the engine itself is thoroughly refined by G-POWER. Starting
with a new set of forged pistons for compression reduction,
manufactured in the Formula 1 department at MAHLE, the BMW V8 engine
is completely re-engineered. Eight new fuel injectors with a larger
fuel mass capacity, a new ignition map for engine electronics and an
additional re-cooling system for engine oil and cooling water
perfect the engine makeover. Of course, also the serial transmission
is modified and adjusted to the performance.
The enormous performance potential of the G-POWER SK III RS
supercharged engine in combination with the six-gear automatic
transmission and the xDrive 4WD enables the SUV to render a driving
behaviour which confirms it as a top player in its vehicle class.
The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h only takes 4,5 seconds. After
16,0 seconds, the mighty five-door car already reaches a velocity of
200 km/h. The maximum speed is 285 km/h.
The G-POWER TYPHOON RS cockpit can be refined with exclusive
accessories like an ergonomically formed sport steering wheel, a
speedometer in TYPHOON design and sporty aluminium accessories.
Further wishes can be fulfilled with exclusive interior equipments
in all possible leather and ultra-suede colours.
The G-POWER TYPHOON RS can be ordered as a complete automobile, or
alternatively, any BMW X5 E70 can be refined with individual G-POWER
components of the high-performance SUV.
