It has already been established that 600 HP for a sedan like the current F90 M5 is more than enough. However, for some people, there’s always room for improvement and the first to tell you that will be the tuning companies. They always find a way to squeeze more performance out of an engine and that’s true for the new M5 as well. The guys from G-Power were among the first to launch a product for the M5.
The German tuner has a kit that can take your car’s performance into the stratosphere, raising the power output to 800 HP and some 1,000 Nm of torque. Those are monstrous numbers and, combined with the all-wheel drive system, turns the M5 into a proper supercar. Remember when making a 10-second car was a complicated process? That’s not the case anymore with these cars, according to the video below.
The guys from AutoTopNL had one of these beasts for a couple of days and put it to the test. The numbers the car posted are impressive but I’m rather intrigued as to why they claim the car has only 770 HP as we know G-Power has a kit that takes it to 800 HP.
Nevertheless, the results posted are impressive. Thee 0-100 km/h was recorded in 3.14 seconds, 0-200 km/h took 10.07 seconds, while the 1/4 mile was done in 10.9 seconds.
That’s only part of the story though. Looking at the results even more carefully you’ll notice the car did the 100-200 km/h sprint in 6.75 seconds and reached a top speed of 311 km/h. In the process it also went from 0 to 250 km/h in 16.35 seconds and from 200 to 300 km/h in 18.71 seconds.
Now, I don’t know about you but allow me to be impressed by those numbers, especially considering the size of the car doing the sprinting.
