G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane RR guns for 372 kph record

Following up on the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS, with its tuned 750 hp engine powering it to a ‘world’s fastest sedan’ record of 367.4 kph earlier this year, G-Power has created a new version of their modified BMW M5 called the Hurricane RR, now capable of 372.1 kph.

To achieve this performance, the twin-supercharger system of the high-revving V10 has been redesigned. The two “ASA T1-313” superchargers named have been replaced by larger “ASA T1-316” units. An optimised mapping of the engine electronics contributes to the increased power output of 800 hp, available between 7,500 and 8,000 rpm. The engine delivers its peak of torque of 800 Nm at 5,000 rpm.

To do the actual top-speed test, the M5 Hurricane RR had its standard 20-inch forged wheels to 19-inch ones fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres certified for speeds of more than 370 kph.

Alongside the 372.1 kph top speed, the 0-100 kph run takes 4.35 seconds, 9.5 seconds up to 200 kph, and 25.8 seconds up to 300 kph.

The G-Power technology is available for all current M5 and M6 models. The basic G-Power SK III bi-supercharger engine conversion with 750 hp starts at 56,000 Euros.

The Hurricane RR is equipped with a G-Power “HIGHLINE” body kit. In addition to providing the necessary downforce, the body kit is also designed to provide significant more airflow to cool the engine. The body kit consists of front and rear skirts and spoilers, doors render and the rear spoiler.

Michelin provided high-performance Pilot Sport tyres, 255/35 at the front axle and 305/30 at the rear axle, both on 19-inch wheels for the test. But for show-boaters, the standard wheels for the street are 20-inch ones with 245/35 front and 285/30 tyres. G-Power brakes, height-adjustable coilover suspension and carbon-fibre interior panels complete the package.

G-Power models are available through select BMW dealerships in the UAE and other GCC countries.
