Back in 2008, the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS became the fastest sedan in the world, breaking a long-standing record of the Brabus Rocket. 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 claimed the world record for the fastest production sedan.

After the record speed, the G-Power decided to push its limits one more time. Therefore, the Hurricane RR BMW M5 came to market with 800 horsepower and a new record speed: 372 km/h (231 mph).

A few months later, G-Power surprises again. An M5 HURRICANE RS based on the E60 BMW M5 Touring wagon hit 359 km/h (224 mph) on a German autobahn. To showcase the performance, the German tuner uploaded a photo on Youtube.

Let’s have a look.

    DAMN thats some serious speed. Wish i was in that car

  • Laszlo

    that could have been 360km/h. doing it at night makes it harder and easier at the same time. Less traffic and cooler temp, but harder to judge distances and clearances.
    Good job, that is one sick grocery getter :-)

    WHY DON’T BMW USE ITS– BMW S70/2 60 Degree V12 ENGINE, IN ANY CAR OF IT ?

  • Laszlo

    That is an older engine. Probably won’t meet the strict emission rules. It hardly ever did back in its times !
    The newer and highly modified version does exist in the 760Li and does a wonderful job. If they will make that car in the future, that V12 must be coupled to a hybrid transmission though. As good as the V12 sounds on paper, also a great deal of myth about it, its not that great. Power output suffers, complexity goes up, space needed for the V12 is huge, emission and fuel consumption always suffers.
    The future is for cars with forced induction and complex multi-drivetrains.

    The old McLaren F1 engine was a total waste if you look at how many cars were using it… few thousand McLaren F1 and the LMR race car plus 1 BMW X5.

    It was oke as the M F1 was 1.1Million usd so it was justified to have a unique one-off engine in it.

    I would love to see a small V8 Twin Turbo like around 3.5l and 375HP with an 7spd DCT in the next M3 but its not to be. It will be a 3.4l 6 cyl with around 430HP based on the current twin turbo 3.0l engine which already makes 335HP in the 1M.

    is it true? the fuel graph(indicator) never moved

  • Jonas

    The speedometer on this video is not the real speedometer but a simulation. So the fuel gage doesn’t work.
