Infinitas contemplates a record-breaking BMW M5 build
The BMW F90 M5 has already seen its stock engine taken from 625 to 800+ horsepower through a variety of upgrades, but GP infinitas GmbH seems to want much more still.
The tuner from Gachenbach, Germany intends to take the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 well beyond 1,000 hp (750 kW) and 1,200 Nm (885 lb-ft) of torque, as evidenced by the latest posts. It looks like its ultimate goal may be surpassing the legendary M5 Touring G-Power Hurricane RR, which the rivaling team managed to accelerate all the way to 372 km/h (231 miles per hour).
The show car in the video wears M Performance carbon fiber parts along with a carbon hood cover and light alloy wheels. On a side note, we would be excited to see a Touring version of this upgrade, but the F90 generation comes without that body style. The only way someone could produce an F90 Touring is by borrowing the body from an older generation and combining it with the latest tech of the M5 – an exorbitantly expensive endeavor, but still well within the realm of possible, judging by some recent projects.
