BMW X6 M goes Typhoon S with G-Power

As BMW’s X6 M was taken over by infamous performance tuner G-Power and converted into the Typhoon, the changes were obvious and the performance isn’t something to snuff at.

It is a little bit of a handful when it comes to the drive, even though BMW fitted one of the sportiest and stiffest packages available on the market.

That’s why the German tuner came back with the S version. It’s meant to be sportier, even quicker and… red.

A revised aerodynamic body makes for less drag, without compromising the downforce. The new setup even ditches those horrid looking rear wings.

They’re more than made up for thanks to some underside engineering and a new, higher performing rear diffuser.

In order to keep you on the power better than before, G-Power have completely changed the transmission with a custom designed unit that can properly handle the added performance.

Otherwise we’re looking at the same engine as before and, unfortunately, the same interior as well.

That means there’s a 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine which develops 725 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque. With that monster under the bonnet the BMW X6 M becomes even more lively.

It can now go from 0 to 62 in just 4.2 seconds and, should you feel brave enough to do this in a high riding SAV, can go over 190 mph at the top end.

Be warned though, at that point the fuel consumption is counted in fuel tanks to the mile and the emissions are well… i think actual coal is shot out the exhaust every couple of miles.
