The specialists of M&D exclusive cardesign present at the end of the year a very special example of their skill. Based on a current BMW 650i from the F12/F13 series, they created the breath-taking broad-construction version that outperforms any M6.
For the powerful transformation of the BMW 650i, M&D installed a special PD6XX-wide-body kit. The technicians achieve the considerable increase in width at the front axle by new mudguards and at the rear axle by massive new side walls. The front and rear are connected by a set of wide side sills incl. swords. At the front, M&D installs a completely bumper with lateral flaps and a spoiler sword.

Therefore G-POWER is using the hidden potential of the BMW M6 Gran Coupé for a power output enhancement of awesome 150 hp and 210 Nm of torque. The G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5 V4 pushes the factory 560 hp/ 680 Nm to 710 hp/ 890 Nm.
The basis for the electronic output increase is the fact that G-POWER, in contrast to the manufacturer, does not use standard software full of compromises but an individual solution for the engine. Among others, the parameters for the amount of fuel and the ignition timing are modified depending on the increased boost level. In case of the G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5, these modifications are made by a micro-processor that is patched in before the standard BMW ECU. Of course all standard protection and diagnostic functions of the original BMW ECU stay untouched. During the engineering process of the latest generation of the successful Bi-TRONIK the G-POWER R&D department has transferred its experience from the area of supercharging to the turbocharged BMW engines. After all, the ASA supercharger used for the G-POWER supercharger systems is closely related to the turbochargers featured by BMW, since both units us a centrifugal compressor to build up boost.
