With its peerless combination of imposing appearance and sports car performance, the BMW X6 M (F86) has quickly established itself as the King of the SUV class.
Now the G-Power upgrade for the X6 M's twin-turbo V8 increases output by 75 hp and 80 Nm, and the resulting 650 hp/478 kW and 830 Nm of torque propels this high performance SUV into the supercar league.
The key to this transformation is the G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5 V1 power module or the equivalent Bi-Tronik 2 V1 ECU remap, each of which has specific advantages. The knowhow behind these upgrades comes out of 30 years of experience in engine development, crowned by seven high-speed world records, the most spectacular being the 372.1 km/h set by the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RR.

The Bi-Tronik 5 V1 power module is a plug and play device placed between the factory ECU and engine. The power module remains inactive under partial load conditions, all incoming data passing through without change. However, a demand for full throttle instantly triggers the unique fuelling, ignition and boost curves that create an additional 75 hp and 80 Nm of torque.
To ensure total engine protection and longevity, the G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5 V1 module only comes online when the prescribed oil temperature is reached, and is deactivated when the engine coolant reaches the factory permitted maximum temperature. The standard diagnostic and engine protection systems remain unaffected. The installation of the system is simple plug and play, and is just as easily uninstalled.
In parallel with the Bi-Tronik 5 V1 module G-POWER also offers their Bi-Tronik 2 V1 upgrade, which involves bespoke remapping of the factory ECU.
Where the Bi-Tronik 5 V1 module is a one size fits all solution, the bespoke remapping procedure of the Bi-Tronik 2 V1 conversion allows the individual wishes of the customer vis-à-vis throttle response and power delivery characteristics to be written into the software.
Additionally, this allows the engineers to take into account every single piece of upgraded hardware, such as free-flow air filters and high-grade sports catalysts, making full use of every potential avenue to optimise performance. Naturally, all the standard diagnostic and engine protection systems are maintained.
In addition to engine upgrades the G-Power X6 M benefits from the ultra-light HURRICANE RR forged alloy wheels. These are sized 11.0x23-inch and shod with 315/25ZR23 Michelin high-performance tyres.
Forged from aircraft-grade aluminium, these very strong and ultra-light alloy wheels are normally available in "Jet Black", "Gun Metal Grey" and "Stardust Silver" finishes. If you opt for the "Diamond Cut" finish, this wheel is also available partially or completely polished.
G-Power also offers a bespoke service with the possibility of a personal signature on each wheel up to a maximum of 15 characters.
