G-Power M5 Hurricane RS becomes world’s fastest sedan, again
Back in 2008, the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS received the title of "world’s fastest sedan." Back then, the car reached a top speed of 228.4 mph. Two years later, the tuner has broken its own record. During some recent testings the Hurricane RS was capable of a top speed of 231.2 mph.
Piston Heads, however, reports they are "not sure if the new feat was independently witnessed, and it was a peak maximum on an oval test track rather than a speed reached over the flying mile in both directions," so we should expect an official press release fairly soon on this record breaking feat, if it indeed is comparable to the previous record setting environment.
The Hurrican RS is powered by a V10 engine with a BI-Kompressor system that helps the engine develop an impressive 750 hp (250 hp more than a stock M5). The extra power of the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS is the result of two modified superchargers with enlarged capacity from G-POWER’s technology partner ASA. The standard air box is replaced by an aluminum casting that allows for an "incomparable response and also much more torque".
Talk about a fast, sweet ride; the only problem is that the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS will set you back €251,100. Ouch. We can think of a few other cars we would like to have for that amount of money.
