G-Power continues to do wonders for the BMW M6 Gran Coupe . Because of its work on the model, it’s not surprising that the German tuner jumped at the chance to work on another M6 Gran Coupe.

The tuning firm’s new Bi-Tronik 5 system is a step up from the Bi-Tronic-III V2 kit that we previously saw on the M6 Gran Coupe back in 2013. Part of that "step up" is a noticeable bump in output that should ring music to the ears of M6 Gran Coupe owners. All the cursory modifications are also there, including upgrades for the wheels, brakes, and suspension system.

But the most noticeable and surprising modification happened on the car’s interior. Who knew G-Power had the knowledge to create a multi-functional cabin that features an eclectic yet effective package featuring fine leather, Alcantara, iPads , and an iMac that comes with Apple TV? It’s a pleasant shift from what we’re used to with G-Power and it’s a big reason G-Power’s program for the M6 Gran Coupe has our unbiased seal of approval.

The BMW M3 CRT and the M3 GTS share a unique bond. They’re both powered by BMW’s S65 4.4-liter V-8 engine. Unfortunately, that engine has been discontinued, leaving a gaping hole among those who like their BMW engines to be high-revving monsters. Fortunately, G-Power is here to save the day, or at least introduce one last engine upgrade for the legendary S65, using both the M3 CRT and the M3 GTS.

G-Power claims to be the only BMW tuner to have an engine upgrade for this engine. If true, that’s a huge deal for the limited number of owners who actually have the M3 GTS and the M3 CRT. Remember, these models are two of the most exclusive M3 s the company has ever released. The M3 GTS was released in 2010 and was limited to just 150 units. In 2011, BMW followed it up with the release of the M3 CRT , which was even rarer with just 67 units built.

Both the M3 CRT and the M3 GTS came with an output of 450 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque. But with G-Power’s SK II “Sporty Drive“ TU supercharger system, the output for both models improves to 650 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. That’s a dramatic rise in power that also results in the sports cars’ 0-to-60-mph times dropping from 4.4 seconds to 4.1 seconds. Likewise, the top speed also improves significantly from 180 mph to an impressive 200 mph.

G-Power’s “Sporty Drive“ TU supercharger system is available at a price of €23,500, excluding tax plus installation. That’s about $32,000 based on exchange rates on 7/8/2014.

German tuner G-Power isn’t the type to waste its time on developing programs for vehicles it doesn’t seem fit to wear the its unmistakable badge. The BMW X6 , though, is one of those that has its stamp of approval. That’s precisely why G-Power went to great lengths to build the SUV a new "Typhoon" program, complete with a comprehensive list of new aerodynamic parts and a performance upgrade that increases the output of the X6 to an impressive 725 horsepower and 656 pound-feet of torque, a staggering rise from the standard 440-horsepower output of the standard X6.

Oh, and that metal-twisting torque numbers can be bumped up to 737 pound-feet with an added performance boost. Either way, you probably aren’t too disappointed about an X6 that can hit 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds to go with a top speed of 186 mph, right? That’s a full 1.2 seconds faster to 62 mph and a top speed that is 37 mph faster than the stock X6 xDrive50i.

With that much work done on the X6 by G-Power, it’s a little surprising that people aren’t giving it the due attention it deserves. We’re not doing it, though, because we know what this company is capable of when it goes through the rigors of building tuning programs that have as intimidating a name as "Typhoon."

Last year, a BMW M3 tricked by G-Power to deliver a total of 610 horsepower managed to hit an amazing top speed of 337.6 km/h (209.7 mph) at Italy’s famous high-speed test track in Nardo. With this result, G-Power managed to break its previous record at Nardo established back in 2011, when a 570-horsepower BMW M3 hit a top speed of 333.1 km/h (206.9 mph).

Now, in order to celebrate the record-breaking event, G-Power announced the special-edition BMW M3 "Hurricane 337." Only 30 units will be produced and it can be applied to M3 V8 SK I, SK II and SK II CS supercharger systems.

This special M3 "Hurricane 337 Edition" is equipped with a powerful ASA T1-523 radial supercharger, a high-flow air intake with large racing air filter, a large volumetric intercooler system made from cast aluminum and a cast aluminum air box. All these changes increased the final output up to a total of 615 horsepower and 438 pound-feet of torque.

In order to improve the engine sound, G-Power also installed a full titanium exhaust system including a set of racing catalytic converters, which also help save a total of 57 pounds from the car’s total weight.

G-Power continues to expand its Hurricane lineup with the addition of a new tuning kit based on the BMW M3 . As with pretty much every other model in the Hurricane lineup — M5 , M6 and 1M Coupe — the new M3 Hurricane RS is all about delivering a crazy amounts of power, a nice aerodynamic kit and some interior mods.

Most of the job was made under the hood where G-Power added an SK III “Sporty Drive” supercharger system that increases the engine’s displacement from 4.0 to 4.6 liters, adds a modified crankshaft and a tailor-made cooling system. All these updates combined with a Titanium exhaust system increases the M3’s output up to a monumental 720 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

With the extra 300 horsepower under the hood, the M3 sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in 9.5 seconds and can hit a top speed of more than 211 mph.

Next to the amazing job done under the hood, G-Power also offers an aggressive body kit made from carbon fiber. It includes a new front spoiler, hood and a trunk lid. Altogether, these mods drop the car’s total weight by 24 pounds.

The new M3 Hurricane RS rides on 20-inch forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires sized 255/30ZR20 up front and 295/25ZR20 out back. A new G-POWER CLUBSPORT coil-over suspension and G-POWER-ceramic brakes on the front and rear axle were required to handle the extra power.

In the past 30 years, G-Power has become one of the most respected BMW tuners in the world. It’s hard to imagine that the company has been around that long, but it has.

So considering that 2013 is the 30th anniversary of the company, G-Power decided to release a new supercharger system just for the occasion. And boy, is it a whopper of an engine program.

The official name of the engine upgrade is the M3 V8 supercharger system "GP Edition 30 years”. It’s limited to just 30 units, which means that it’s going to get scooped up in a hurry. It’ll also cost just €4,199, which is around $5,600 based on current exchange rates. That’s not a bad amount to pay for a supercharger system that can produce up to 500 horsepower for the BMW M3 .

If you want something a little more powerful, the SK II CS ‘GP Edition 30 years’ chalks up 600 horsepower at €8,399, which is about $11,300 based on current exchange rates.

Let this be a call to anybody looking to get this special edition engine upgrade from G-Power. Remember, only 30 units will be built so if you’re interested in one, better get to it and let the aftermarket company know as soon as possible. G-Power sales reps can also fill you in on what M3 models this kit fits, as the site does not reveal that important piece of info.

When G-Power released the first M6 Bi-Tronic III kit , we were rather impressed by the stunning 640 horsepower and 573 pound-feet of torque the tuner was able so milk from the 4.4-liter V-8 engine. Well, color us astounded, as G-Force went right back into the garage and churned on the Bi-Tronic-III V2 kit for the F13 M6 that makes this one of the fastest and most powerful M6 models on Earth.

G-Power added in a new ECU tune and a high-flow exhaust system to extract 710 horsepower between 6,000 and 7,000 rpm, and 656 pound-feet of torque at 4,800 rpm from the fire-breathing BMW V-8. That’s an unthinkable 150-horsepower and 156 pound-feet gain over the already awesome base M6. With this mammoth amount of power in tow, the M6 Bi-Tronic III sprints to 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 10.8 seconds and hits a top speed of 186 mph — a 31 mph gain. Unfortunately, G-Power did not make light of its 0-to-60 mph time, but we’re sure it is far better than the stock 4.1 seconds — likely, it is around 3.5 seconds (0.3 seconds faster than the original Bi-Tronic III M6).

G-Power went to great lengths to also enhance the handling, braking and look of the M6 with additional components. Keeping the M6 glued to the road are 21-inch G-Power Hurricane forged wheels with 265/30 Z-Rated Michelin tires up front and super-wide 305/25 Z-rated Michelin rubber out back. Making sure the body roll is minimal and that maximum rubber touches the road is the GM6-RS G-Power coil-over suspension

G-Power also added in a ceramic braking package that reduces unsprung weight and brake fade for optimal stopping power without negatively affecting the car’s handling.

Back in 2012G-Power unveiled the BMW M5 Hurricane RRS , which delivered an amazing output of 830 horsepower. Now, the tuner used the experience accumulated developing that car and created the M3 GT2 R, which is not only the baddest road-legal M3 around, but also a sort of tribute to the M3 GT2, which raced in numerous GT events between 2009 and 2013.

A base BMW M3 delivers a total of 420 horsepower, but with some intensive work, the guys over G-Power managed to add another 300 horsepower to the car’s V-8 engine, transforming the M3 Coupe into a real monster. Most likely, this will be one of the latest staggering upgrade kits offered for the M3 before it goes out of production in September.

Along with the amazing job done under the hood, G-Power also offers a modified aerodynamic package made entirely in carbon fiber to help increase downforce and save some weight.

G-Power unveiled its first tuning kit for the BMW M3 GTS back in 2011, shortly after the standard car was dropped on the market. Now, the tuner is offering an Efficiency Program for the M3 GTS - a program that will add another 15 horsepower over the previous program.

For this increase, theM3 GTS was updated with a "Sporty Drive" TU supercharger system that includes extreme revisions to the components of the air-intake and the fuel-supply system and a larger racing air filter. Also, the tuner remapped the standard ECU software and added a new fuel pump system. Thanks to these updates, the M3 GTS now develops a total of 650 horsepower at 7,800 rpm and a peak torque of 464 pound-feet at 3.900 rpm.

With the extra power, the M3 GTS will sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds – 0.3 seconds faster than stock – and to 124 mph in 11.8 seconds and will go up to a top speed of 200 mph.

Leave it to G-Power to build another high-powered program for German automaker BMW .

For starters, the M6-Bi-Tronik III will come with a performance upgrade that involves optimizing the M6 Coupe’s twin-turbo V-8 engine and adding in a new Titanium exhaust system that includes titanium link pipes with resonators starting from the downpipe catalysts, netting the sports car 640 horsepower, a full 80 ponies more than the standard model. The car’s twisting power was also increased to 573 pound-feet of torque. This nets the M6 a top speed of 195 mph and a 0-to-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds.

In addition to the performance upgrade, the Bi-Tronik III program will also receive an RS coil-over suspension system, a four-pipe stainless steel exhaust system, a set of 21-inch Silverstone RS forged wheels and carbon-fiber brakes. Also included is a high-performance brake system that features six brake pistons and 420 mm (16.53 inches) brake disc diameter for the front axle.

The cost for the entire kit is €36,150 (about $47,250 at the current exchange rates).

Update: This review has been updated with new images, the official pricing of the kit and additional specifications.
