The latest modified BMW X6 by G-Power has been revealed. The G-Power X6 M Typhoon features a wide-body kit and improved cooling to allow the engine to deliver 715bhp.

Extended wheelarches add seven centimetres to the X6 M's width. The extensions are necessary to accommodate the 315/25 tyres on 23-inch wheels. Keeping the rubber in contact with the road the suspension uses adjustable dampers and the coilover units lower the car by 30mm.

At the front a new bumper is dominated by enlarged air intakes to channel cooling air to the engine and brakes. It is also claimed that the changes reduce aerodynamic lift on the front axle. The carbon fibre G-Power Venturi bonnet also contributes to keeping temperatures under control in the engine bay, thanks to 'Dynamic Venting' technology.

Between the front and rear wheel arches are new sills that incorporate LED lighting aimed at the ground. These lights are activated either by a remote control or by pulling on the door handles.

The rear bumper is completely new and incorporates a diffuser. G-Power has also fitted a stainless steel sports silencer for the exhaust, with twin 114mm tail pipes. Two spoilers are fitted, one on the roof and the other at the base of the rear window, to cut lift on the back axle.

Engine modifications include new exhaust manifolds and new pipes from the turbochargers to the intake manifold. The result is an additional 168bhp for an overall output of 715bhp and 656lb.ft of torque, which can be raised to 738lb.ft if a reinforced gearbox is fitted.

Performance claims include 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 186mph. Stopping is taken care of by ceramic brakes with six piston callipers at the front and four piston callipers at the rear.

The complete package costs around £60,673 plus fitting but the various elements are priced individually so customers can pick the parts they want.
