G-Powers creations are never short on power and its latest production, the "Storm," a 760i with 725hp (@5500rpm) and 738lb-ft torque (@2000rpm) certainly does not buck that trend! G-Power was to achieve these monster numbers by boosting the 6.0L V12 bi-turbos boost to .9 bar, adding larger injection valves, custom tuning the ECU, and replacing the factory exhaust system.
