G-Power are now offering their Hurricane RS upgrades for the BMW M5 Touring models. It offers a top speed of 360km/h thanks to a 750hp twin-supercharged V10 powerplant which makes it one of the fastest estate cars in the world.
Two ASA T1-316 superchargers have been fitted; one to each cylinder bank. A twin-scroll, water-cooled intercooler has been added to aid air flow. The box itself has been cast from aluminium and replaces the series-production airbox giving increased responsiveness combined with a considerable benefit in torque.
Mahle high-performance forged pistons with lower compression and increased stiffness have been added. The standard con-rods and piston pins have been replaced by specialist parts too. Optimized mapping for the engine electronics gives that little bit extra.
0-100km/h times are less than 4.5 seconds, 9.7 seconds to 200km/h and 26 seconds to the 300km/h mark are impressive too. 20 inch G-Power Silverstone Diamond wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport rubber measuring 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 are fitted. To deal with the suspension G-Power have added their G5-RS coil-over suspension with nine-way adjustability for compression and rebound plus infinitely variable height adjustment
G-Power brakes are fitted, front and rear. With a disc diameter of 396mm on the front and 380mm at the rear, combined with six- and four-pot callipers respectively, deceleration forces upwards of 1g are normal. Customers have the option of upgrading to the G-Power ceramic brake set, which delivers a reduction in unsprung masses of around 50% for the braking componants.
The interior of the M5 Touring has been upholstered by G-Power in premium leather and Alcantara and goes beyond what is possible from “BMW Individual” equipment. Diamond stitching is a feature on almost all surfaces, including the seats, roof pillars and the entire headliner, with even the floor mats and rear load surface finished in this style.
As a complete vehicle the BMW M5 Hurricane RS Touring includes the 20 inch wheel set, suspension, brake system and the power increase to 750hp, as well as the G-Power full-leather upholstery.
Just one question, whats the price? And will they organize an used model for you or do you have to bring your own?
The interior modification took over 500 hours and is estimated to cost around 30.000€
