After releasing the Hurricane RR and Hurricane RS , G-Power has revealed details on the Hurricane GS, a BMW M5 equipped with an LPG system. And in true G-Power form, the new GS model has already established a world record becoming the fastest LPG car in the world.
The new Hurricane GS is offered with a G-POWER SK II bi-supercharger system that increases the output of the engine to an impressive 660 hp and 650 Nm of torque. With this amount of power under the hood the GS is capable of sprinting from 0 to 62 mph in only 4.6 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in just 11.4 seconds. Top speed has been established to a record of 201 mph.
Interested in a little record-setting GS model? It’s going to cost a total of 33,571 euro (around $43,500 at the current exchange rates), so start breaking up the piggy banks.

Exterior and Interior
Like its RS brother, the GS gets a new set of wheels required for this amount of performance. G-Power is offering a new set of 9.0 x 20-inch and 10.5 x 20-inch forged SILVERSTONE CLUBSPORT alloy rims clad in 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 MICHELIN tires. At the rear, there is also a new G-POWER SPEED-Flow exhaust system.
G-Power has equipped the Hurricane RS with a G-POWER SK II bi-supercharger system. This allows each cylinder bank of the 5.0l V10 power plant to be equipped with a belt-driven ASA T1-313 compressor. The result is an impressive 660 hp and 650 Nm of torque.
The GS model is also equipped with a G-POWER high-performance braking system and the G-POWER RS coil-over sports suspension, with 9-way adjustability for compression and rebound plus infinitely variable height adjustment.
The world record was established on Augist 9, 2010 on a desolate strip of autobahn close to G-POWER headquarters in Autenzell. The car entered the Guinness World Book with a top speed of 333 km/h, or 201 mph.
For those interested in buying this car, the price for the conversion is 33,571 euro (around $43,500 at the current exchange rates). The new set of wheels is priced at 7,635 euro (around $9,900 at the current exchange rates).
At the moment the Hurricane GS is a model that has zero competition. Unless someone can think of another 201 mph LPG car. Our guess is that tuning firms, Hamann or AC Scnitzer, may soon answer the challenge presented by the GPower RS.
