G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane RS

BMW received a new program from G-POWER and turned its sedan in the fastest one in the world, the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS. It is able to deliver 750 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 228.4 mph. This high-speed world record has been realized with a 20 horsepower stronger evolution of the model that has been clocked with 360 km/h earlier in 2008. This model is the result of two modified superchargers with enlarged capacity. The boost level was increased and it can be increased a little bit more to 1.0 bar rel. and more. The engineers said that there is still some room left for improvement and if in the end the carmaker finds out that it needs more, they can do it, they can improve. If this change will happen, if they will need the extra power, we will know, probably later.

After the record for the world`s fastest BMW sedan, G-POWER did it again and broke the long-standing record of the BRABUS Rocket for the fastest sedan in the world.

In November 2008 the 750 hp strong G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS realised a top speed of 228,4 mph. This speed has been clocked and certified at the ATP High-Seed test track in Papenburg. With it the since October 2006 valid record of 365,7 km/h has been broken.

The G-POWER high-speed world record has been realised with a 20 hp stronger evolution of the famous G-POWER M5 HURRICANE which has been clocked with 360 km/h earlier in 2008 and holds the record for the fastest BMW sedan. The extra power of the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS is the result of two modified superchargers from G-POWER`s technology partner ASA, with enlarged capacity. In the following the boost level of the G-POWER BI-Kompressor system could be raised from 0,7 bar rel. to 0,8 bar rel.

But still the G-POWER BI-Kompressor system has not yet reached its limit. According to CEO and engineer Christian Stöber:" ...we can rise the boost level up to 1,0 bar rel. and more" and CEO Zoran Zorneke is of the opinion:" we can still improve, if we see the need for it."

We are curious if this will be necessary...
