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 twin-supercharged V10 engine that delivers 750 hp of max output. This enables the G-Power Hurricane RR 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 percent, raising the max output to 800 hp (588 kW). The model delivers 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of peak torque, enabling the vehicle to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.35 seconds, and from nil to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.5 seconds.
In only 25.8 seconds, the G-Power Hurricane RR 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 percent 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.
Last year, LUMMA Design cooperated with G-Power to create the LUMMA Design CLR 730 RS, which is essentially a BMW M5 model turned into a "unique, extreme, and spectacular" super sports limousine. Associated with racing and boasting of a stylish exterior and awe-inspiring performance, the LUMMA Design CLR 730 RS can deliver 730 hp of max output and 700 Nm of peak torque from its G-Power's V10 bi-compressor engine.
Thanks to aerodynamics, the LUMMA Design CLR 730 RS is able to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 367.4 km/h. The LUMMA CLR 730 RS boasts of a wide body kit that consists of ultra light compact carbon components, including a hood, a trunk lid with integrated tearing edge, door handles, mirror caps, entrance strips and fenders.
In addition, the LUMMA Design CLR 730 RS has a special sport suspension that lowers the vehicle 45 mm closer to the ground while allowing multiple adjustments on both axles. The new LUMMA Design CLR 730 RS rides on a set of three-piece LUMMA Racing rims in 10x21 inch shod with tires size 255/30-21 on the front, and 12Jx21 with tires size 295/25-21 on the rear axle.
