2011 G-Power M5 Hurricane RS Touring

G-Power knows BMWs like the back of its hand, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to us that the German tuning firm took a shot at working up a BMW M5 Touring with some highly impressive performance packages.

With a 5.0-liter V10 engine already under its hood, G-Power gave it a massive performance boost, courtesy of the tuning firm’s SK III RS twin-turbocharger system. The result is a car that produces 750 horsepower and a top speed of 224 mph, a record-breaking speed that netted the car the title as the world’s fastest estate sedan.

Now that we’ve made this vehicle oh-so desirable for anybody who enjoys the BMW M5 , it’s worth noting that there’s a certain level of exclusivity for G-Power’s M5 Hurricane RS Routing. Of all the BMW M5 Touring models, only 1,025 units of this model will be equipped with G-Power’s performance upgrade, which means that scooping up a piece of this car is going to be a mighty task, even for the lofty standards of the BMW M5.

If you can’t afford or find a way to bring home this car, then you’ll be just like the rest of us. Don’t worry, though. Misery loves company, anyway, right?

Details on the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS Touring after the jump.

Exterior and Interior

The exterior of the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS Touring didn’t get changed all that much, but the tuning firm did add a set of 20” G-Power Silverstone Diamond wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Rubber tires measuring 255/35 ZR 20 on the front and 285/30 ZR 20 on the rear.

The interior of the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS Touring is where all the upgrades are found. For starters, G-Power gave the car premium leather and Alcantara with the team’s craftsman responsible for upholstering virtually every surface of the interior with the high-end material. The full leather upholstery also features a unique diamond stitching on almost all surfaces, including the seats, roof pillars, the entire headliner, the floor mats, and rear load surface. Finally, G-Power logos are also integrated into the seats and headliner set to add a unique accent to the overall appearance of the car’s interior.

Performance

This particular BMW 5-Series Touring has a 5.0-liter V10 engine under its hood, with G-Power putting in its very own SK III RS twin-turbocharger system together with other performance modifications. The result is a touring car that churns out a mighty impressive 750 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque with a 0-60 mph time of just under 4.5 seconds. The suped up M5 gets a top speed of 223.7 mph.

Pricing

At the moment, G-Power hasn’t released the pricing for the car or the overall upgrades, for that matter. Having said that, the BMW M5 sells for $83,000, which means that it won’t be unreasonable to think that the whole package - car and all - could hit costs of somewhere north of six digits.

Competition

Consider a G-Power M5 Hurricane RS Touring and its 750 horsepower-engine and try to find a car that can suitably stand up to it. Fortunately, BMW’s main rival, Audi, has one ready, willing and able to take on the G-Power M5: the Audi RS6 by Romeo Ferraris .

Speaking of performance numbers, both the G-Power M5 and the Romeo Ferraris RS6 were each given their own performance upgrades that increases their engine output north of 700 horsepower. While the RS6’s 720 horsepower falls short of the G-Power’s 750 horsepower, it’s not that far-off that it can leave the RS6 to eat its dust.

So which one of these two touring thoroughbreds would we pick? Performance numbers are right about even, but we’re going with the M5 Touring only because it has nicer interior upgrades.

For some reason, I’m not so impressed with this Touring. Well, I didn’t find it attractive unlike with the other BMW vehicle, but it’s a good thing that it has an awesome engine.

may be ultra fast. but the color combination is, for sure, ultra ugly.

So it’s slower accelerating than a stock M5? For $44,000? Sure, sounds like a great deal. And I’m almost positive Dinan offer a 5.7 NA package that pushes 600-650hp. This seems like a big waste of money if you ask me.

4.5s to 60 from a 750Hp car is not so good. At his power it should of been more like 3-3.5s!

The bad thing is that this M5 looks very bad! This design line is probably the poorest ever and when made Touring it is just horrible!

Look at the fin on the roof of the M5, its like what you find on a truck, the Veyron didn’t have this assistance...

Does it come with a helmet? I like the matte paint, get rid of the silly graphics and stripes PRONTO!
