Ohio-based tuner, Switzer Performance, is famous for its upgrade packages for two-door models like Porsches and the GTRs, but this the tuner turned its attention to a four-door model: a BMW M5 . Called P700, the new package is all about increasing the engine’s power and can be yours for a price of $6995.
In the standard garb, the BMW M5 a 4.4-liter V-8 engine equipped with M TwinPower Turbo helps the M5 deliver a total of 460 horsepower and a peak torque of 502 pound-feet. However, Switzer thought that the M5 could do much better than that and we totally agree. So, Switzer went to task installing high-flow, drop-in air filters, a removable engine control module and a new high-performance, stainless-steel exhaust system. This new exhaust system includes less-restrictive mufflers and larger-diameter pipes.
The result is an output of 700 horsepower, hence the P700 name, and of 640 pound-feet of torque. We have no idea how this kit will improve the car’s performances, but it’s definitely much faster than the standard M5’s 4.4-second 0-to-60 mph time and 155 mph top speed.
