hp @ 7500 - 8000 rpm
(from G-Power Press
Release) 372 km/h - New World Record! G-POWER M5
HURRICANE RR with 800 hp
The air is tight with
tension when the G-POWER engineers give their “go” for the M5
HURRICANE RR to manage the ultimate test: High Speed.
It takes only a few
minutes to change the standard 20 inch G-POWER forged wheels to 19
inch ones. The wheels, especially fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport
tires that Michelin has certified for top speeds of more than 370
km/h. The HURRICANE RR is ready to go, the test track as well. Apart
from the swop of the wheels the HURRICANE RR is completely standard
and relies predominantly on its power of the bi-supercharger engine.
And just a few laps
later it is done. The analysis of the engineers states a top speed
of 372,1 km/h. World record!
To achieve this extreme
performance, the twin supercharger system of the high-revving V10
has been redesigned. The two superchargers named ASA T1-313 have
been replaced by larger ASA T1-316 units. They are both driven by a
belt and do provide each cylinder bank with supercharged air. This
means more space for the supercharged air by up to 25 percent. The
air volume being transported by these modified superchargers is able
to generate a theoretical power output of more than 900 hp.
The pre-compressed air from the superchargers is cooled for a
maximum power output. A complicated aluminium casting - painted in
G-POWER orange - replaces the standard air box on top of the engine,
and its direct inlet is responsible for the spontaneous response
characteristics which give the G-POWER motor its incomparable
response and also much more torque.
The inner workings of the 10-cylinder, four-valve engine are
optimised by light, precisely balanced MAHLE high-performance forged
pistons with lower compression and increased mechanical strength. As
the standard connecting rods and piston pins were equally not up to
the considerably increased forces, here too, recourse was had to
An optimized mapping of the engine electronics also contributes to
the increased power output of 800 hp / 588 kW, available between
7,500 and 8,000 rpm. The engine delivers its peak of torque of 800
Nm at 5,000 rpm.
But the G-POWER HURRICANE RR does not only set new performance
standards for top speed. With an acceleration of just 4.35 seconds
from nought to 100 km/h, 9.5 seconds up to 200 km/h and 25,8 seconds
up to 300 km/h the two-ton sedan is also leading his class.
The G-POWER technology is available for all current M5 and M6
models. The G-POWER SK III bi-supercharger engine conversion with
750 hp / 551 kW starts at 56,000 Euros (net).
In addition to the most powerful BMW engine ever being fitted to a
street-legal BMW M5 a new aerodynamic for maximum efficiency was
key. The HURRICANE RR is equipped with the G-POWER “HIGHLINE” body
kit. In addition to provide the necessary downforce the body kit is
also designed to provide significant more air flow to cool the
engine. The body kit consists of front and rear skirts and spoilers,
doors render and the rear spoiler.
Two tons of weight and a top speed of 372.1 km/h naturally require
extreme demands on the tires, being fitted on special G-POWER forged
wheels. Our technology partner Michelin provided high-performance
Pilot Sport tires in the dimensions 255/35 ZR 19 at the front axle
and 305/30 ZR 19 at the rear axle for this reason. For every day use
the G-POWER HURRICANE RR runs on 20-inch Silverstone CLUBSPORT
wheels with the dimensions 245/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 front and
Even more contributions to the HURRICANE RR’s high-speed talents are
coming from a G-POWER high-performance brake system and the
height-adjustable G-POWER RS coilover suspension that is adjustable
for both compression and rebound in nine settings.
The interior of the record car features a tachometer reading up to
400 km/h, clear-coated carbon-fiber panels for the dashboard, center
console and door panels. An ergonomically shaped G-POWER sports
steering wheel with especially perforated Kjerba Nappa leather is
completing this package.
The G-POWER HURRICANE RR can be ordered as a complete car, only. Any
current M5 model – sedan or station wagon – can also be equipped
with the individual G-POWER components of the world record holder.
