While some tuning firms do what they do in order to upgrade a vehicle’s looks, many find the greatest amount of joy in pushing these vehicles’ limits to the outermost edge of their threshold. G-Power ’s ultimate test was found on the Nardo high speed test track. When you can successfully test your vehicle on the Nardo test track, you know you are doing good, but when you do so by achieving a top speed of 207 mph, you know your success has just tripled.
The Nardo Ring in Italy is 7.8 miles long and features four lanes for cars and motorcycles to test out their speed capabilities. What makes this track so special is its simplistic design that allows drivers to eliminate steering needs when traveling at speeds within the 149 mph limit set in the fourth lane. What this means is that the lanes are angled in such a way that drivers can drive the vehicle as if they were speeding down a straight line, which we all know is the way to go to set a higher top speed.
On the flip side, this test track can also put a heap of pressure on the vehicle’s engine with high temperatures and full throttle driving tackling its construction. This is where G-Power has excelled. Their tuning kit for the BMW M3 not only allowed Christian Stöber, Vice President and Technical Director at G-Power to get the M3 up to 207 mph at the 2011 Nardo High-Speed Test event, but did so with no major engine damage. Only two cars with 900hp and 1000hp were faster at this event, which speaks volumes of G-Power’s new BMW M3 package.
