Since its official unveiling, the Lamborghini Urus has been dominating headlines, with the Italian brand positioning it as the “world’s first super SUV”. But German tuner G-Power probably reckons its take on the BMW X5 M is even more extreme.
Yes, the firm has gone to work on the high-performance German SUV’s 4,4-litre twin-turbo V8, boosting the stock outputs of 423 kW and 750 N.m to a whopping 551 kW and 980 Nm. Maths addicts will quickly work out that is some 73 kW and 130 N.m more than the Urus.
G-Power says it achieved these outputs thanks to the implementation of one of its power modules, modifications to the turbochargers, the fitment of a titanium exhaust system (with a quartet of 102 mm tailpipes) and the addition of a new set of downpipes. While the tuner doesn’t provide a claimed 0-100 km/h time, it does say that the end product tops out at more than 300 km/h.
Less extreme tuning packages – the first taking outputs to an Urus-matching 478 kW and 850 N.m, and the second boosting peak figures to 514 kW and 905 N.m – are also available from G-Power.
In addition, the tuner offers a “Typhoon” widebody styling kit for the X5 M that includes fender flares, redesigned front and rear skirts and a carbon-fibre bonnet. Hurricane RR forged 23-inch alloys in a double-spoke design are also offered.
So, one question remains: this or the Lamborghini Urus?
