Click above for a high-res gallery of the G-Power Hurricane.

No, the G-Power Hurricane isn't one of Fifty-Cent's Smart concoctions; it's the new record holder for the fastest, street-legal BMW on the globe. The modified E60 M5 was clocked doing 225 mph (360 km/h) at Germany's Papenburg speed bowl this past weekend, taking the title from the AC Schnitzer Tension M6.

The M5's V10, which normally produces 507 hp, was tweaked to the tune of 730 hp through the use of the firm's Evo II twin-supercharger setup. The duo of belt-driven compressors huff around seven pounds of boost into each one of the cylinder banks, and partnered with a higher differential, the G-Power crew maintains the Hurricane could have reached 250 mph if rain and light snow hadn't caused traction issues.

      I can't imagine driving 730 hp. Wow.

      I can't imagine 730hp and 4 friends.

      SUPERCHARGER for the win!

      Kind of makes the Veyron seem a little less "special"

      I'm impressed by the 225 MPH speed, but I honestly doubt that this 730 HP sedan can reach 250 MPH if it takes the Veyron over 1,000 HP and a body that was designed entirely with top speed in mind.

      G-Power always makes smthn crazy out of already crazy cars. 730 is a lot...glad that it is a road legal.

      I am suprised they were able to overcome the drag. That would be one hell of a sleeper.

      This might be awesome but is still slower than the 2 year old Brabus Rocket.

      Pretty Crazy.

      225 mph in rain and light snow? I'll pass on that...

      A thing of beauty.

      Am I the only one who thinks this is way overkill? or am i just gay? When they changed the m5 from a v8 with 400hp to a v10 with over 500 i thought that was overkill the only reedeming factor was it had a switch from 4-5. but 730? is there really any diffrence between 500 and 700hp or is this just a novelty?
