2012 G-Power M5 HURRICANE RR news, pictures, and information
G-POWER delivers a M5 HURRICANE for the 100th timethe Jubilee Model M5 HÚRRICANE RRs wîth 830 hp – the most powerful version in the world
After the G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RR wîth twin-supercharger engine and 800 hp/588 kW has set a new High-Speed record wîth 372 km/h in 2010, improving the old G-POWER record from 2008, the demand for this power sedan wîth supercharged V10 engine just exploded. So, today already the 100th G-POWER HÚRRICANE is leaving the G-POWER workshop in Autenzell as a jubilee model wîth an additional 30 hp output increase.

• 800 hp / 588 kW at 7.500 r/min (+ 293 hp / 215 kW)
• 780 Nm at 6.500 r/min (+ 260 Nm)
• Top speed: 372 km/h
• 0-100 km/h: 4,3s
• 0-200 km/h: 9,1s
• 0-100 km/h: 25,2s
• G-POWER Bi-Kompressor system SK III RRs „Sporty Drive'
• G-POWER 20´´ SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheels
• G-POWER coilover suspension GM5-RS
• G-POWER brake system for front and rear axle
This light blue G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RRs is equipped wîth a reworked version of the high-revving V10 engine modified by G-POWER and supercharged by a BI-Kompressor „Sporty Drive' system. Therefore the two superchargers named ASA T1-313 have been replaced by larger ASA T1-316 units. They are both driven by a belt and do provide each cylinder bank wîth supercharged air. Further down the line the pre-compressed air from the superchargers is cooled for a maximum power output. A complicated aluminium casting - painted in G-POWER orange - replaces the standard air box on top of the engine, and its direct inlet is responsible for the spontaneous response characteristics which give the G-POWER motor its incomparable response and also much more torque.
The inner workings of the 10-cylinder, four-valve engine are optimised by light, precisely balanced MAHLE high-performance forged pistons wîth lower compression and increased mechanical strength. As the standard connecting rods and piston pins were equally not up to the considerably increased forces, here too, recourse was had to special parts. The switch to an Alpha-N engine management system and hence the elimination of the air mass sensors also contributes to the increased power output of 830 hp / 610 kW, available between 7,500 and 8,000 rpm. The engine delivers its peak of torque of 780 Nm at 6,500 rpm.
Of course the periphery of the engine, especially the exhaust system and the fuel supply system, needs to be modified as well in order to match wîth the new requirements. A G-POWER SPEEDFLOW exhaust system wîth two racing catalysts minimizes the exhaust backpressure and a G-POWER stainless steel rear muffler wîth DEEPTONE technology and 4 x 83 mm tail pipes featuring the M-Design completes the exhaust system of the M5 HÚRRICANE RRs. The capacity of the fuel supply system is upgraded wîth fuel injectors wîth enlarged mass flow and the use of an additional high performance fuel pump. An electronic control unit designed by G-POWER enables the additional third fuel pump to operated boost related. This set up guaranties and reliable fuel supply under all conditions.
Prepared like this the G-POWER HÚRRICANE RRs does not only set new performance standards for top speed. With an acceleration of just 4.3 seconds from standstill to 100 km/h, 9.1 seconds from standstill to 200 km/h and 25,2 seconds from standstill to 300 km/h the two-ton sedan is also leading his class.
Two tons of weight and a top speed of more than 370 km/h naturally require extreme demands on the tires, being fitted on special G-POWER wheels. Our technology partner Michelin provided high-performance Pilot Sport tires in the dimensions 255/35 ZR 19 at the front axle and 305/30 ZR 19 at the rear axle for this reason. For every day use the G-POWER HÚRRICANE RRs runs on 20-inch SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheels wîth the dimensions 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 front and rear.
Even more contributions to the HÚRRICANE RRs's high-speed talents are coming from a height-adjustable G-POWER RS coilover suspension that is adjustable for both compression and rebound in nine settings and the high-performance G-POWER brake system wîth up to six brake pistons and up to 396 mm brake disc diameter for the front axle and 380 mm for the rear axle. The G-POWER brake system enables a substantially higher brake force than the standard brake system. At the same time, the heat generated due to the braking process can be dissipated more effectively. The G-POWER brake package is completed by brake pads wîth a larger pad area, higher friction rate as well as metal-coated brake lines. With this set-up, the G-POWER Braking System always provides maximum brake force and the braking point remains precise in any case. Of course, G-POWER customers are provided wîth the choice of rotor material: both steel brake discs and ceramic alternatives (which are about 50% lighter for significantly improved cornering and road handling) are available.
The cost for the G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RRs components start wîth 1.861,00 € for the G-POWER coilover suspension GM5-RS. Followed by 4.673,00 € for the 20``G-POWER SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheel set incl. MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport tyres in the dimension 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20, and 6.466,00 € (Ceramic version 14.460,00 €) for the G-POWER brake system for the front axle and 4.785,00 Euro (Ceramic version 11.788,00 €) for the rear axle. The output increase wîth the help of the G-POWER SK III RRs „SPORTY DRIVE' supercharger system for the BMW M5 E60 / E61 and M6 E63 / E64 is listed wîth 57.000,00 € plus the installation in the G-POWER price list.
Since the company's founding in 1983, it has focused solely on the tuning of BMW cars and the production of exclusive, handcrafted vehicles. In 2008, G-POWER was integrated into Group ASA, a year in which both brands celebrated their 25th anniversary. G-POWER is now one of the few globally active and highly reputable suppliers of exclusive cars. In cooperation wîth development partner ASA, G-POWER has developed unique versions of BMW's most important models, and the world's most powerful versions of each, which clearly sets us apart from our competitors. G-POWER holds five world records:
- Fastest BMW sedan wîth 730hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE and a top speed of 360 km/h
- Fastest LPG-powered car wîth the 660hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRCANE GS and a top speed of 333 km/h
- Fastest Sedan wîth the 750hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RS on the ATP high-speed oval in Papenburg wîth a measured top speed of 367.4 km/h. G-POWER exceeded its own record wîth the 800hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RR wîth a top speed of 372 km/h
- Fastest 4-seater coupe wîth the 750 hp G-POWER M6 HÚRRCANE CS and a top speed of 370 km/h
- Fastest SÚV wîth the 750hp G-POWER M5 Touring HÚRRCANE RS and a top speed of over 360 km/h (governed)
