2011 G-Power Hurricane GS
After the BMW M6-based Hurricane RR and the M5-based Hurricane RS, G-Power has something new to show us and it is pretty interesting– the Hurricane GS, which is a M5 that has an LPG system. Pretty interesting, don’t you think? Continuing the tradition set by other G-Power cars, the Hurricane GS has already won the title for the fastest LPG car in the world.
The company’s new model has been fitted with a G-POWER SK II bi-supercharges that increased the power of the engine to 660 hp and 650 Nm of torque. With this significant upgrade, the M5-based Hurricane GS will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.6 seconds, 0-124 mph in 11.4 seconds, onto a top speed of 201 mph.
Similar to the RS model, the GS now rolls on a brand new set of rims that are more suitable for this kind of performance. The GS has been equipped with 20-inch forged SILVERSTONE CLUBSPORT that measure 9×20 in the front ant 10.5×20 in the back, covered by MICHELIN 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 tires. In the back of this M5-based car, G-Power installed their proprietary SPEED-Flow exhaust system.
As mentioned before, the company fitted the Hurricane RS with the impressive G-POWER SK II bi-supercharger system that will allow each of the cylinder banks of the V10 5.0-liter to be fitted with a belt-driven ASA T1-313 compressor. To put things in another perspective, the engine churns 660 hp, enough to make it the fastest LPG car in the world.
In order to efficiently stop this fast car, the GS has been equipped with a high-performance braking system developed by the company as well as a RS coil-over sports suspension that offers 9-way adjustability for rebound and compression plus infinitely variable adjustments.
The car set the world record for the fastest LPG vehicle in the world on August 9, 2010 near the company’s HQ in Autenzell, Germany, on a desolate strip of autobahn. The car succeed to reach a top speed of 201 mph (333 km/h), entering the Guinness World Book.
This new set of wheels costs $9,900 and the price for the entire conversion package will set you back $43,500.
There are no competitors for the 2011 G-Power Hurricane GS at the moment, unless other tuning company decides to create an LPG car capable of reaching 201 mph or more. Maybe AC Schnitzer or Hamann will come up with a similar car, taking into consideration their passion for BMW cars.
