It is not the first time that G-POWER is improving its own record. Already in 2010 a G-POWER M5 HURRICANE (sedan) improved its record of 367,4 km/h for the world’s fastest sedan, established two years before, to 372,1 km/h.
Currently the modified Bi-Kompressor system for the BMW M5/M6 E6X series – featuring the legendary high–rev V10 engine – enables the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RR Touring to a new top speed of 362 km/h, making it in spite of the electronically limitation to the fastest station wagon in the world. Of course the G-POWER HURRICANE RR Touring sets new performance standards not just for top speed. With sprint times of less than 4.4 seconds from standstill to 100 km/h, 9.5 seconds to 200 km/h and 25,6 seconds to 300 km/h the two-ton station wagon is at the head of the pack in these categories as well.
But that’s not all. Next to the spectacular power output enhancement for the 5.0l V10 BMW engine to impressive 820 hp/790 Nm, the price for the G-POWER M5/M6 V10 Bi-Kompressor system during the “GP Edition 30 Years” promotion might be a surprise, too. With the „GP Edition 30 Years“ special edition, the ticket to the world of G-POWER M5/M6 V10 supercharger systems starts as low as € 7.300,– excl. VAT. With this basic system, the customer receives – next to the power output enhancement from 507 hp to 560 hp – a high-quality supercharger system that is being serially produced in large quantities and which can be customized with several options accordingly to the individual needs of the customer. The G-POWER Mono-Kompressor system, based on a single ASA T1-724 supercharger, is available in 600 hp, 620 hp, 640 hp and last but not least 700 hp configurations, as well. Still the maximum power output enhancement of 820 hp is reserved for the G-POWER Bi-Kompressor system – based on two ASA T1-316 superchargers- that has been reduced in price for the “GP Edition 30 Years” promotion, too.
The secret behind the unrivalled price of the G-POWER supercharger systems is founded in constant evolution process of the system that allows in its current state use of state-of-the-art production processes and that fore the methods of serial production. The supercharger mounting plates for the two powerful ASA T1-316 superchargers and the complete air ducting, for example, are made from lightweight cast aluminium. Based on the world wide unique serial production of aftermarket supercharger systems with large numbers, along with the experience gained from more than 150 installed M3 V10 Bi-Kompressor systems after its introduction 6 years ago and the continuously product development, it is possible to constantly offer high level quality at this unrivalled low price.
But now back to the technical highlights of the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RR Touring. A two-tonne vehicle weight and a top speed of 362 km/h (limited) set extreme demands on the tyres, which is why the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RR Touring runs on 20-inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE RS wheels with MICHELIN Pilot Sport tyres measuring 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20. Handling is also enhanced by the G-POWER G5-RS coil-over suspension with nine-way adjustability for compression and rebound plus infinitely variable height adjustment. A further factor contributing to the high-speed capabilities of the HURRICANE RR Touring is the G-POWER brake system front and rear. With a disc diameter of 396 mm on the front and 380 mm on the rear, combined with 6 and 4-pot callipers respectively, deceleration forces upwards of 1g are perfectly conceivable. Also worthy of consideration is the optional G-POWER ceramic brake set, which delivers a reduction in unsprung masses of around 50%.
The G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RR Touring does not only set benchmarks in performance, but also when it comes to individuality and exclusivity. The interior of the M5 Touring, upholstered by G-POWER in premium leather and Alcantara offers impressive confirmation of what is possible above and beyond “BMW Individual” equipment. The painstaking work carried out by hand by G-POWER craftsmen goes far beyond simply upholstering virtually every surface with the finest grades of leather and Alcantara. In contrast to many leather workshops, G-POWER takes the time to reshape the original BMW seat cushions. Only thanks to this unique technology can the distinctive look created by G-POWER be achieved in combination with an optimum synthesis of comfort and lateral grip.
The visual highlight of the G-POWER full leather upholstery is the perfectly executed stitching covering almost every surface, like for example the front seats, rear seats and the door panels – even the floor mats and the trunk cover has been made from premium leather and covered with stitching. G-POWER logos in the front seats and the headlining set tasteful accents in this sophisticated composition of Carbon, leather and Alcantara.
The modification of the M5 HURRICANE RR Touring interior by G-POWER is completed by an exclusive multimedia entertainment system that leaves nothing to be desired. Next to a powerful audio system, electric powered iPads in the rear of the front seats, a lowerable main monitor from the headlining and an Apple iMac incl. Apple TV enable leisure time or productive work according to the desires of the car’s owner. The special highlight of the G-POWER multimedia entertainment system is the centered control of each component, like for example the interior lights or all electrical powered elements (iPads, main monitor and Carbon folding tables) through the G-POWER app, exclusively developed for this purpose.
