When G-POWER engineers began designing the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS, the goal was to build what would be BMW’s greatest car. To get this particular project under way, the engineers chose the BMW M6 to form the foundation considering that it is presently the brand’s most exclusive model.
Combining this with the advanced products offered by G-POWER, they were able to make an excellent sports car. Powering the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS is the twin-supercharger V10 SK III RS engine that can deliver 750 hp / 552 kW. With this, it is able to reach a 367,4 km/h maximum speed, ensuring this car’s spot in the super car group.
Other features include a Carbon-Ceramic break system, a suspension kit that can be adjusted individually, and the multipart widebody kit. There is of course the G-POWER 21-inch wheels that come with the MICHELIN tyres. In order to develop the M6 HURRICANE CS, G-POWER also used the M5 HURRICANE RS as a basis considering that it holds the world record for being the fastest sedan.
As such, not only was the V10 used but the twin supercharger system was even redesigned. Most standard systems for example use the ASA T1-313 superchargers, both of which are belt-driven and provide a rush of air for each cylinder bank. For the M6 HURRICANE CS however, the ASA T1-316 models, which are larger, were used.
The benefit is that it increases the volume of the air by as much as 25% and only using a fraction of the engine. The air volume that the chargers offer could hypothetically be enough for more than 900 hp of power output. The superchargers have pre-compressed air that has been cooled to have optimum power yield through a water-to-air dualflow intercooler painted with the G-POWER orange.
In addition, this particular feature replaced the stock airbox that is usually seen above the engine. Since this cast-aluminum part is close to the engine, it creates an immediate throttle response similar to that of a production engine with the exception that it offers more torque. The mechanism of this four-valve ten-cylinder engine has been optimized by using the forged Mahle highperformance pistons that help lower compression.
Furthermore, they have been matched for weight and are even stronger compared to the production versions. Even the piston rods and pins seen in production models have been replaced as well with special parts that are able to handle the higher forces present.
By augmenting how the engine electronics are mapped, it increases the 750 hp / 552 kW power which is available from 7,500 rpm to 8,000 rpm. Maximum torque delivered by the engine is 800 Nm at 5,000 rpm. In addition to having 370 km/h of maximum speed, the acceleration of the almost two-ton G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS is also at the top of its segment.
It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in under 4.4 seconds and it takes only 9.6 seconds to get from 0 to 200 km/h. From standstill to 300 km/h, it takes 26 seconds. With a 370 km/h top speed and a weight of two tons, it is expected that the tires experience tremendous demands.
To support this pressure, the M6 HURRICANE CS has the light-alloy G-POWER wheels with the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires sized 255/35 ZR 19 for the front and 305/30 ZR 19 for its rear. These are the only tires that can handle this amount of stress. However when used for everyday driving, there is the option to use the Silverstone Diamond 21-inch wheels.
The front tires meanwhile are sized 255/30 ZR 21 while the rear tires measure 295/25 ZR 21. The reason for this is that under this scenario, the maximum speed of the M6 HURRICANE CS has been limited to 340 km/h. This street-legal BMW has the aerodynamic properties aside from being equipped with what may be the brand’s most powerful engine.
As such, the body kit has to be able to cope with this power. For instance, it has to have enough down force in order to make sure that the M6 HURRICANE CS can exceed 300 km/h and transform the BMW M6 to a super sports car. This is also the reason why the wide body kit is composed purely of carbon fiber.
With this, it can provide more cooling air aside from creating the needed downforce. The wide body kit has a bonnet with vents, front apron, rear aprons with diffusor, wheel arch attachments, rear spoiler wings, and rocker panels. While it improves performance, the G-POWER also made sure that the BMW M6 was lightweight.
The biggest reduction in the weight was the decision to have the exhaust system composed of titan. The result is that the exhaust system is 24 kilograms lighter compared to the standard ones in addition to lowering the back pressure.
The interior was modified as well with the usual front seats replaced with the carbon fiber racing seats. This provides the driver with the support needed against centrifugal forces. Similar to the exhaust system, these seats are lighter and save the M6 HURRICANE CS 24 kilograms.
