G-POWER has done it again. The M3 Hurricane can now be named the fastest sedan in the world, breaking a long-standing record of the Brabus Rocket. Back in March, we wrote about G-Power’s tuning program, named “Hurricane”, and also about their 730 horsepower M5

At the time, the M5 ran the track with a top speed of 200 mph, but G-Power had bigger plans for their M5. In November 2008, G-POWER M5 Hurricane RS achieved a top speed of 228.4 mph (367,59 km/h). The previous 227.2 mph (365,7 km/h) hold by the Brabus, has been broken. The test took place on tracks in Papenburg.

While the Brabus has a V12, G-Power uses only a simple V10 from the shelves of BMW and modified this engine with other two superchargers from G-POWER’s technology partner ASA, with enlarged capacity.

According to G-POWER the BI-Kompressor system could be raised from 0,7 bar rel. to 0,8 bar rel., but the system has not reached its limit yet. Companies representatives confirmed that if needed,  the system could be improved and the M5 Hurricane could be taken to a whole new level. 

Which level that might be, time will tell. We’re almost positive that Brabus has something in-works to regain the lost status.

    “The M3 Hurricane […]” ? Make it better, Horatiu :) Small mistake.

    Impressive, but I’m a little discouraged at their target for the future. 1/10th of a bar of added boost? For those unfamiliar with forced induction, that’s only about 1.45 extra PSI.

    Damn! thats a fast car. Nex year I’m either gettin a M3, 760il, or a M5 and I’m going to have Mike Dinan hook it up like crazy. If I do get a M5 I probably have it push out about 680hp-720hp, butt wow!!!!! fast, nice , sexy, M5!

    What do they mean by “world speed record”? It’s monstrously fast, but it’s presumably in the same world as the other, faster speed records.

  8. Brambo says:

    It would be interestenting to know how long did it took to stop it?

    Its really nice. BMW has to keep the V10 engine. V8 isnt going to be good at all.

    Hallo,

    ich lobe Ihre Webseite, denn sie ist echt ganz gut geworden und vor allem interessant.
    Ich weiss aus eigener Erfahrung, wieviel Arbeit das eigentlich immer ist.

    Ich habe selbst auch eine Webseite – zum Thema Emsland und ich schlage vor, dass wir kooperieren.
