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.
