BMW's most powerful SUV yet - The G-POWER TYPHOON has just arrived. With its wider stance and greater 'Umph', it is the most potent contender to the Porsche Cayenne Mansory 955 that we saw earlier. G-Power made its mark on us when it tuned the BMW M5 to make it the fastest sedan you can buy right now.
