A few months ago G-Power unveiled the Hurricane RR - the world’s fastest sedan. Now, in an attempt to make the BMW Z4 even faster, the tuner is offering the same SK Plus supercharger system for the sports roadster.
This system is available for the Z4 3.0i version and increases the engine’s output by a total of 55 HP. The result is an impressive 286 hp at 6,000 rpm and 345 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. With the new supercharger, the Z4 will now sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds.
Next to this system, G-Power is also offering a new set of 20" wheels, a “GZ4-RS” coil-over suspension with 9-way adjustable compression and rebound, and a rear sport silencer made from stainless steel.
The price for the package is 2,500 euro and can also be applied to the BMW 3 Series E46. However, if you are looking for some serious power then potential customers should also take a look at the BMW Z4 by Hamann . This kit provides the roadster with 360 kicking ponies and strips away the top speed limiter. Really the preference between these two models comes down to customer preference. Subtlety and style goes to G-Power while speed is a hands down win for Hamann.
Meet the new M6 Hurricane RR - the world’s fastest 4-seat coupe. Based on a BMW M6 , the Hurricane RR is G-Power’s latest full speed creation. It may look familiar, considering this is practically the same kit that was blended in to the BMW M5 juts a couple of months, but this latest masterpiece is just a tad faster, making it that much cooler.
Following in the footsteps of theM5 Hurricane RR , the M6 can now develop a total of 800 HP and is capable of hitting a top speed of no less than 230 mph. This increase was attained by adding the same bi-supercharger system to the V10 engine as found in the previous Hurricane RR. This setup is cooled using a dual-flow, water-cooled charge air cooler system and works with a new set of lightweight, precisely balanced Mahle high-performance forged pistons.
The result of all that work is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph made in 4.35 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in 9.5 seconds, and to 186 mph in 24.9 seconds. The latter being the only time that was an improvement over the M5 Hurricane RR, albeit slightly.
Check out the full story plus the press release after the jump.
The new Hurricane RR is powered by a 10-cylinder engine that received larger superchargers than the V10 used in the RS. The engine also received MAHLE high-performance forged pistons with lower compression and increased mechanical strength. These adjustments allow the RR to produce 800 hp available between 7,500 and 8,000 rpm and 800 Nm at 5,000 rpm. With this amount of power, the RR can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.35 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in 9.5 seconds, and to 186 in 25.8 seconds. Top speed is 372.1 km/h (231 mph).
A body kit was also added to the Hurricane RR and includes front and rear skirts and spoilers. The car sits on 20" Silverstone Clubsport wheels. The interior also gets modified with the use of clear-coated carbon-fiber panels for the dashboard, center console, and door panels. Topping off the interior is an ergonomically shaped G-POWER sports steering wheel with especially perforated Kjerba Nappa leather.
UPDATE 01/20/12: It’s rare that a BMW could be in contention for the title of fastest saloon in the world, but once you factor in G-Power into the BMW’s equation, then all bets are off. If you’re looking for proof, check out this video of the high-powered Beamer M5er run roughshod around the Nurburgring. Video after the jump.
The German tuner G-Power will unveil the 760i Storm next week at the Geneva Motor Show. Limited to only 10 units, this is the most powerful BMW 7-Series ever built.
Powered by a 6,0l V12 bi-turbo engine with a compressor from ASA, the BMW 760i will develop a total of 725 hp at 5,500 r.p.m and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm at 2,000 r.p.m. As a result the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in only 4,2 seconds, the one from 0 to 124 mph in 11,9 seconds and top speed goes up to 214 mph.
And if the power upgrade is not enough for you, G-Power is also offering an aerodynamic kit that includes: a new front skirt made of carbon fiber, a bonnet made of Kevlar hybrid, full carbon add-ons for the serial side skirts, a full carbon rear spoiler and a full carbon diffuser and the doors and 22" forged three-part aluminum wheels. A new sports spring set lowers the car by 30mm.
Every so often an occasion comes along that requires taking the time to come up with something special enough to commemorate the celebration. Well in honor of their quarter of a century in existence, the German tuning firm G-Power has unveiled a special edition BMW X5 to celebrate their 25th anniversary based on their Typhoon appearance package for the sports activity vehicle called Black Pearl. On the outside you will find the same familiar aggressive front bumper with its oversized air intakes and LED driving lights, wide body fenders, vented hood and and low hanging ground effects package. Out back a G-POWER stainless steel sport muffler pokes out from the new diffuser while a set of staggered G-POWER Silverstone aluminum alloys measuring an impressive 23 inches in diameter round out the exterior upgrades.
What makes the Black Pearl unique is the specially developed G-POWER SK III RS supercharger kit that motivates the 4.8 Liter BMW V8 to make a total of 625 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. The newfound boost in output allows the Black Pearl to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 MPH, figures that would make a sports car jealous.
We can’t think of anything more appropriate than a German tuner turning a few wrenches on one of Germany’s most powerful people movers. As they comes from the factory, the X5 M and X6 M models roar like muscle cars, so when G-Power gets done with them you can only image what the end product is like. However the high performance specialists focused on more then just upping the fastback sport activity vehicle’s output, that is why they started off with one of their wide body Typhoon body kits to get the ball rolling.
The first thing that G-Power modified was the 4.4 Liter Biturbo’s engine electronics that not only removes the factory set 155 MPH top speed limiter, but also increases the motor sport inspired SAV all the way up to 600 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. This allows the G-Powered X5 and X6 M to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds and reach a terminal velocity of 186 MPH. Aside from the ultra aggressive front bumper from the Typhoon kit, the exterior is dressed up with a carbon fiber front spoiler with integrated oversized air inlets, lower hanging side skirts and of course a set of G-Power Silverstone Editionaluminum alloys measuring 23 inches in diameter.
When the luxury German automaker revealed the new BMW X5 M it was announced that the multi passenger sports vehicle would deliver 555 HP from a twin turbocharged V8. While having nothing to do with the factory’s M Division, the new tuning package from the aftermarket manufacturer G-Power has been boosted to deliver a maximum output of 625 HP, a 70 HP increase over the most powerful X5 in BMW’s lineup.
The new Typhoon RS comes with a vented hood, a set of extremely bold fender flares and a more aggressive front fascia with larger air inlets and two rows of LED lit driving lights. Out back there is a new rear apron made to work with the company’s stainless steel sport mufflers. Tying the front and rear of the modified Bimmer together are a pair of sports inspired side skirts that replace the rather impractical factory running boards. Finishing off the Typhoon RS is a set of custom black 23 inch forged aluminum rims with a chrome lip.
Thanks to a supercharger, the 4.8 Liter engine now produces 625 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to those new numbers, the Typhoon only takes 4.5 seconds to spring from 0 to 60 MPH and reach an impressive top speed of 177 MPH.
The BMW Z4 3.0i (231Hp) got a brand new performance kit developed by the German tuner G-Power. The new kit gives an ASA T1-12 supercharger to the 3.0l straight-six engine. Featuring a complete exhaust system with racing-headers and catalysts and a new ECU system the engine performs now 375 hp at 6.450 rpm and 420 Nm torque at 4.650 rpm. With a sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h of 4.9sec and to 200km/h in 15.1 sec the new engine can race now the BMW Z4M. The top speed of the G-Power G4 is 300 km/h.
The conversion to the G-Power EVO III configuration costs around €18,850 or $29,900 and it also includes installation. The G-Power offers along with the kit a complete tuning program which includes: aerodynamic body kit, 20-inch light-alloy wheels, suspension modifications, high-performance brake system with eight-piston fixed callipers and 380 x 34mm brake discs on the front axle and exclusive interior components
Any weaknesses regarding handling and comfort can difficulty be proven to this class leader. Nevertheless, the 3series offers sufficient rooms for intensive optimizations à la G-POWER in terms of design and engine varieties. The unobtrusive sporty G-POWER aerodynamic program and the comprehensive rim program represent the entrance into the G-POWER offer for the 3series.
To optimize one of the most successful models of the BMW history is a walk on tight rope. Already from factory, the balance between performance and every-day suitability is on highest level. G-POWER emphasizes the sporty attributes with series having proofed already several times their stability also in hard racing sport use.
