The days when diesel engines were only a source of unbearable noise and a devouring hog have long past. The new generation of engines are very reliable, efficient and highly performing. Especially if we are talking about BMW 3.0-liter engine with three turbo-blowers.
Available on the F10 models such as M550d or X5 and M50d or X6, the Bavarian turbo-diesel M550d packs 381 HP and 740 Nm, which can guarantee a first sprint from zero to hundred in 4.7 seconds. And if these figures are frightening for regular people, they were too low for the engineers from G-Power.
Therefore, the German tuning workshop based in Autenzellare firmly convinced that there is room for improvement. They chose the BMW 5 Series Touring or the M550d xDrive version, to be exact.After subjecting the car to a tuning program called D-Tronik 5 V1 the stock model gained some power. It now packs no less than 435 horsepower while torque has increased to 850 Nm! The same exercise to accelerate from 0-100 can be performed in only 4.5 seconds and maximum speed was increased to 270 km/h.
And you know what the best part of the story is? This tuning kit costs only 2760 euro! I wonder how it would be to take the children to school in such a monster.
