G-Power Hurricane RR based on the BMW M5 is the world’s fastest sedan

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

The World's Fastest Sedan record now belongs to a BMW M5 that has been modified by German tuning company G-Power. It is claimed that the G-Power Hurricane RR can reach a top speed of 372 km/h (231 mph), which is about the same as what McLaren F1 supercar boasts.

This model beats the record set by G-Power's M5 Hurricane RS, which was powered by a 750 hp twin-supercharged V10 engine that enabled it to reach a top speed of 367.4 km/h (228 mph). 

The G-Power Hurricane RR's power is boosted by about 6.67%, raising the output to 800hp (588 kW). The model delivers 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, enabling the vehicle to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.35 seconds, and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.5 seconds.

In only 25.8 seconds, the car can reach 300 km/h (186 mph) before proceeding to its record-breaking top speed. The engine was equipped with larger superchargers to achieve 25% more space for the air volume.

G-Power's engineers decided to use 19-inch wheels for the speed run instead of the 20-inch wheels that were originally installed on the EUR252,100 car. In addition, the wheels were covered in Michelin Pilot Sport Tires.

G-POWER breaks existing record

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 new top speed of 228,4 mph (367,4 km/h). This speed has been clocked and certified at the ATP High-Speed 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 curios if this will be necessary…
