While the product life cycle of vehicles tends to be shortening nowadays, there are still exceptions that defy this trend. Among them is the big roadster classic from Mercedes-Benz: the SL. Manufactured for upwards of ten years, its previous generations have always been on the market for an exceptionally long time. The current model – soon to enter its eighth year – is still fascinating, luxurious and elegant. And the SL 63 AMG version, powered by a V8 twin turbo, also features a superior drive and a generous dash of sportiness. G-POWER has now turned its attention to this powerful roadster, helping it reach new heights in terms of performance and allowing it to enter unforeseen territory at supercar level.
The video available at the following link provides an excellent impression of the G-POWER SL 63 AMG in action: >> VIDEO
The 5.4-liter V8 now makes 215 hp more - a total of 800 hp - at an intimidating 1.100 Nm
The 5.4-liter M157 eight-cylinder generates a smooth 800 hp/588 kW thanks to G-POWER´s optimization work. This means an increase of 215 hp/158 kW over the basic model and it takes just 3.5 seconds to sprint to 100 km/h thanks to this increase in power! Finally, the top speed isn´t reached until well beyond the 340 km/h mark. A combination of software and hardware optimizations is responsible for the improvement in engine output. On the one hand, the roadster has the proven G-POWER V3 performance software in conjunction with the removal of the speed limiter, which is separately available.
At the heart of the G-POWER performance enhancement are modified turbochargers
This is supported by a new exhaust collector, as well as downpipes with sports catalytic converter and an exhaust system, all of which are made of stainless steel. To round things off, the two turbochargers are modified: As usual,
G-POWER fits larger turbine and compressor wheels, CNC-optimized housing and enhanced compressor turbine blades. This reduces the exhaust-gas back pressure and exhaust temperature, while the airflow increases.
The DIAMOND CUT fits perfectly with the elegant appearance
In terms of look, a new wheel set underlines the exceptional position of the G-POWER SL 63 AMG. The open two-seater features a set of 21" HURRICANE RR forged rims made using ultralight high-tech aircraft aluminum. The twin-spoke wheels are characterized by the G-POWER DIAMOND CUT high-sheen finish wheel customization in jet black. The 265/30 ZR21 and 295/30 ZR21 high-performance tires are extremely wide, ensuring ample grip and safe road holding, even at high speed.

The BMW 6 Series has become history – at least in its traditional form as the coupé, or the more recent convertible and Gran Coupé forms too. But of course, these models aren´t disappearing completely from the range. On the contrary, BMW is returning to an equally prestigious name for its successor: the 8 Series.
Performance increase to 670 hp - thanks to more than 35 years of experience
It goes without saying that G-POWER, specialized in performance optimizations on BMW models for more than 35 years, has already gotten involved with the most powerful 8 Series model to date: the M850i. The result is, as usual, a significantly higher performance in comparison to the rest of the series, which helps bring the G-POWER M850i xDrive to a performance level worthy of super sports cars.
The large 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 in the front of the G-POWER M850i xDrive generates an impressive 670 HP (493 kW) and a maximum torque of 890 Nm. This is a boost of 140 HP (103 kW) and 140 Nm in comparison to the rest of the series.
Acceleration: 0-100 km/h in 3,1s - Top Speed: > 320 km / h
Responsible for this is a combination of hardware and software modifications. For one thing, G-POWER has installed a set of stainless-steel downpipes including 200-cell sports catalytic converters. These reduce both the thermal load and the dynamic pressure, allowing the twin-charged V8 engine to exhale more freely, thereby generating the basis for an even higher performance output for the sporty coupé. This new potential of the M850i Is than directly transferred into more output by the time-tested V2 Performance Software, supported by its perfect match, the increase of the top-speed limit, which can be optionally obtained. This means the G-POWER M850i can reach speeds of more than 320 km/h. In doing so, it completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.1 seconds!
Engine protection and diagnostic features are preserved
Because the factory-installed engine protection and diagnostic features remain unchanged, the eight cylinders of the N63 are guaranteed to not be affected by the software changes. After all, G-POWER sets the safety and longevity of the technical components as its top priority in all developments and carries out extensive testing, both in hot and cold conditions.
Ultra-light 21-inch forged wheel set completes the performance increase
In addition to the technical optimizations, the M850i also shows off a set of the popular HURRICANE RR forged rims. The lightweight wheels are distinguished by their five classic double spokes and have dimensions of 9x21” and 10.5x21” here. They are fitted with high-performance 255/30R21 and 305/25R21 tires.

BMW needs only one more letter for performance-hungry fans of the marque to enjoy the ultimate driving sensation,: an M. In the current G11 model generation, this is seen for the first time in the largest luxury sedan coming out of Munich, the BMW 7 Series. The top model in this series, the M760Li, is powered by a V12 engine with 610 HP and 800 Nm and bears the prestigious letter in its name for the first time.
Of course, G-POWER, being specialized in optimizing the high-powered models from Munich for more than three decades, could not help giving this powerful luxury liner a performance upgrade that brings the M760Li up to performance values that are unequaled in its class.
BMW M760LI after the G-POWER upgrade 700 hp strong and over 310 km/h fast
After being given a G-POWER enhancement, this most powerful G11 generates an impressive 700 HP and a maximum torque of 900 Nm. Responsible for the increase of 90 HP and 100 Nm is the V1 performance software. Until the end of the 2018, it can still be purchased at the reduced “35th Anniversary EDITION” price of 2,080 euros, which G-POWER is offering to mark the anniversary year. The same holds for the additional top speed cancellation: its price currently starts at 471 euros and is partly responsible for the fact that the M760Li, which comes off the line with a standard xDrive four-wheel drive, accelerates up to 310 km/h before reaching top speed! The 100 km/h barrier is broken after only 3.4 seconds.
G-POWER PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE V1 protects the potent V12 engine
Of course, customers need not worry that the durability of the 7 Series 6.5-liter V12 could suffer from the software optimization, since ensuring a long service life and preserving all engine protection and diagnostic functions are given top priority at G-POWER.
Visual highlight - 21 "HURRICANE RR forged wheel set
G-POWER also installed a set of the time-tested HURRICANE RR forged rims to provide visual proof of the extraordinary status of the M760Li. The lightweight wheels with five double spokes revolving on the axles of the large sedan are 9x21” and 10.5x21” including matching 255/35 R21 and 295/30 R21 high-performance tires.

Actually, 612 HP and 850 Nm are not the performance characteristics you would expect from a staid sedan. But thanks to AMG, this is exactly the combination you can find in the form of the E 63 S based on the current E-Class W213.
Of course, G-POWER is able to top this: by extensively modifying the hardware and software, these performance specialists regularly get AMG models into top shape, pushing their engine and road performance into realms otherwise reserved exclusively for super sports cars.
A spectacular video showing the G-POWER E 63 S AMG in action can be found here:
Thus the E 63 S from the current W213 model generation delivers a cool 800 HP of power and a maximum torque of a whopping 1,000 Nm, which takes the four-wheel-drive sedan to 100 km/h in only 3.1 seconds. Then it does not reach top speed until it´s moving at far more than 300 km/h!
Responsible for this increase of 188 HP / 138 kW and 150 Nm on the electronic part of the G-POWER performance upgrade is the Performance Software V3. Retaining the longevity of the engine, the G-POWER V3 performance software leaves the engine protection functions and diagnostic capabilities of the ECU unaffected.
The key change as regards hardware is the turbocharger modification, which includes using CNC-machined cases, among other things, as well as turbine wheels that are aerodynamically optimized. Hence the two chargers deliver incomparably better performance compared to the series components.
As an addition, the G-POWER E 63 S also boasts stainless steel downpipes, including a catalytic converter, connected to an exhaust system also made of stainless steel.
A perfect complement to the decidedly beefy look the AMG E 63 S already boasts when it comes off the line are the new G-POWER wheels: the extremely lightweight HURRICANE RR rims are 21 inches in size and have a jet black diamond cut finish.

For anyone who wants to sweeten the waiting time for the replacement of the BMW M6 by the BMW M8 next year, G-POWER offers the perfect package: In addition to an increase in output to 800 hp (588 kW) / 1050 Nm, the M6 carbon aerodynamics program provides maximum downforce next its striking racing look. This is pure race track feeling for the street!
The power increase from 560 hp to 800 hp is made possible by profound optimization of the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine: in addition to new downpipes, with or without sport catalytic converters, the turbochargers are undergoing a major rework. The G-POWER modifications include a CNC-optimized turbine housing with enlarged inlets as well as lighter and more efficient turbine wheels. More air flow, improved response and reduced exhaust temperature are the result. A high-quality titanium exhaust system with four 100-mm-diameter carbon tailpipes completes the engine modifications. All hardware changes are coordinated by the G-POWER Performance Software V4, which is uploaded directly onto the engine control unit and fine-tuned on the in-house four-wheel dynamometer.
The G-POWER performance enhancement for the BMW M6 is supplemented by a motorsport inspired carbon-aerodynamic program that consists of a front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and a mighty rear wing. In addition to the significantly sportier appearance that is provided by the aerodynamics package, it also generates significantly more downforce on the front and rear axles. This improves the driving stability, especially in the high-speed range, since the G-POWER M6 is capable of a top speed of more than 330 km/h.
The G-POWER M6’s front appearance is completed by the so-called Venturi bonnet made of carbon. Not only does it look spectacular, but thanks to the "Dynamic Venting" technology, it also fulfills an important function from a technical point of view: when driving, the hot air from the engine is more efficiently removed. This not only reduces the thermal stress of the engine, but also actively supports its performance increase by keeping the engine temperature in an optimal range even in extreme situations.
To ensure the uprated M-Coupe maintains perfect road manners, G-POWER installs its G6M RS fully adjustable coilover suspension, and a set of HURRICANE RR forged alloy wheels in GTS color scheme and 9.0 x 21 and 10.5 x 21 inch sizes, shod with 255/30 R21 and 295/25 R21 high performance tyres.
So, for all customers who like their M6 not only to be up to 800 hp strong, but also look just as fast, the carbon aerodynamics program and the HURRICANE RR forged wheel set is the perfect match to the G-POWER performance increase.
