G-Power M6 Hurricane CS - Click above for a high-res image gallery

The G-Power crew is constantly striving to produce the most insane BMWs on the planet, combining forced induction with thoroughly revised suspensions and aerodynamics to attain completely unreasonable speeds. It's latest creation, the M6 Hurricane CS, takes the standard set by its M5-based Hurricane RS, and straps a duo of superchargers onto the 5.0-liter V10, boosting the coupe's output to 740 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

Combined with a remapped ECU and a titanium exhaust, along with carbon fiber seats and a few other tweaks to reduce the curb weight by around 100 pounds, the CS can run to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, to 124 mph in 9.6 seconds, 187 in 26 seconds and on to a claimed top speed of 230 mph – making it the fastest road-going BMW coupe on Earth.

In addition to the twin superchargers and bespoke body-kit, G-Power fitted the CS with carbon ceramic brakes at all four corners, with the front discs measuring in at 380mm and clamped by six-piston calipers. A coil-over suspension with nine adjustable settings joins front and rear anti-roll bars, and for a scant 390,000 euros, it can be yours. All the details can be found in the press release below the fold.

World record: G-POWER introduces fastest BMW Coupe with a top speed of 370 km/h

Creating the ultimate BMW, nothing less was the set target for the G-POWER engineers when they started to designe the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS.

The starting basis for this project is the currently most exclusive model in the BMW product range, the BMW M6. Due to the combination of this fantastic basis with the technical innovative products of G-POWER, it was able to create a sports car of superlatives.

Powered by a V10 SK III RS twin-supercharger engine with 750 hp / 552 kW, which enabled the G-POWER world record car to achieve a top speed of 367,4 km/h, the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS has got what it takes to be a member of the super car league.

Further characteristics of the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS is the multipart widebody kit, the high performance Carbon-Ceramic break system, the individually adjustable suspension kit and last but not least the nifty 21 inch G-POWER wheels with MICHELIN tyres.

After the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS broke the world record for the fastest sedan, G-POWER developed this idea to use this potential to build the world's fastest BMW coupe, the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS.

For this project, the redesigned twin supercharger system of the world record car for the fastrevving V10 was used. Compared to the standard system, both belt-driven ASA T1-313 superchargers, each providing charge air for one cylinder bank, were replaced by larger ASA T1-316 models. They have the capacity to increase the volume of charge air by up to 25 percent but only a fraction of that was utilized in this engine. The air volume these chargers are capable of would theoretically be sufficient for a rated power output in excess of 900 hp.

The pre-compressed air from both superchargers is cooled for maximum power yield in a dualflow water-to-air intercooler painted G-POWER orange. This sophisticated cast-aluminum component replaces the stock airbox above the engine. Because of its close proximity to the engine it produces the same instant throttle response as the production engine, albeit with considerably more torque.

The inner workings of the ten-cylinder four-valve engine are optimized with forged highperformance pistons from Mahle that reduce compression. They have been precisely matched for weight and are much stronger than their production counterparts. The production piston rods and pins also had to make way for special components that can handle the much higher forces.

Further optimized mapping of the engine electronics also contributes to the increased power output of 750 hp / 552 kW, available between 7,500 and 8,000 rpm. The engine delivers its peak torque of 800 Nm at 5,000 rpm.

The G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS sets new performance records not just for top speed with more than 370 km/h. With sprint times of less than 4.4 seconds from rest to 100 km/h, 9.6 seconds to 200 km/h and 26 seconds to 300 km/h the nearly two-ton coupe is at the head of the pack in these categories as well.

Two tons and a top speed of 370 km/h naturally place extreme demands on the tires, which were mounted on G-POWER light-alloy wheels. Technology partner Michelin provided highperformance Pilot Sport PS2 tires in sizes 255/35 ZR 19 in front and 305/30 ZR 19 on the rear axle.

These tires were the only ones capable of handling the extreme stress. In everyday driving the GPOWER M6 HURRICANE CS runs on 21-inch Silverstone Diamond wheels with size 255/30 ZR 21 and 295/25 ZR 21 tires, due to the capacity of the tires the top speed has to be limited to 340 km/h, than.

In addition to the most powerful BMW engine ever to power a street-legal BMW, favorable aerodynamic properties were of elementary importance. The needed body kit has to fulfill to function at once. First of all it has to generate enough down force to keep the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS on the ground at speeds of more than 300 km/h and secondly it responsible for transform the standard BMW M6 into a super sports car.

That is why G-POWER designed a unique widebodykit made entirely from carbon fibre. In addition to producing the desired downforce it is also designed to supply much more cooling air. It consists of front apron, bonnet with vents, rocker panels, wheel arche attachments, rear aprons with diffusor and a rear spoiler wing.

At the same time G-POWER puts the BMW M6 on a diet and makes it lose weight bit by bit. The biggest share is taken by the G-POWER complete exhaust system made entirely form titan which lets the dynamic back pressure drop just like the weight. 24 kg are saved compared to the standard exhaust system.

In the vehicle interior G-POWER switches the standard front seats against racing seats made from carbon fibre, which ensure a perfect support for the drive in its fight against the centrifugal forces. Of course these seats are lighter than the standard seats as well and again the M6 has lost 24 kg.

Weight neutral, but not without effects is the G-POWER suspension package CLUBSPORT. It optimizes the road handling of the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS to perfection and is consisting of the continuously height-adjustable G-POWER coil-over RS suspension with nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound and the G-POWER anit-roll-bar kit for front and rear axle.

The option list of the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS ends with a true highlight: a Carbon-Ceramic break system with 6-piston calibres and brake discs with 380 mm in diameter. This heavy duty brake system delivers declaration rates beyond the gravity on a constant rate and at the same time are 50% lighter than the standard brakes.

The standout cockpit of the G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS features a speedometer with 400-km/h scale, clear-coated carbon-fiber panels for dash, center console and doors, as well as an ergonomically shaped G-POWER sport steering wheel with especially pleasant perforated Kjerba Nappa leather.

The G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS can be ordered as a complete car starting at 360.000 Euros.

G-POWER was founded in 1983 and concentrates exclusively on the tuning of BMW automobiles.

The company celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2008. Today it is among the most reputable brands in the global tuning market. G-POWER sets itself apart from the competition with the most powerful important BMW engines developed in-house.

      For the first time in its current production run, someone has made the 6-series coupe actually look good....
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's great that it's so fast...it will be out of my sight quicker. Ugly.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Did someone convert a Pontiac GTO to look like a BMW 6?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Pitiful. Only 740hp. Twin turbos and intercoolers easily get 200hp/liter.
      1000 hp minimum should be the goal with this engine. Twin superchargers...meh. It takes horsepower to turn them...this engine is probably grossing 850 or more horsepower...taxed at the crank to turn the blowers. Turbos cost horsepower...they don't sap it at the crank.

      Poor engineering to only obtain this amount of horsepower after replacing pistons, connecting rods.

        • 5 Years Ago
        It would take lots of boost to make 1000 hp from that engine. It would also lots of turbo lag, which is why BMW went with a N/A setup in the first place.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I hope it's photoshop'd...which it appears to be. In the top picture it doesn't look like there is a rear suspension. If that tire moves 1/4" it is going to get torn up by the fender.....messing the fender up also.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I will give it to them, its fast, but its ugly as hell and the color is horrible. And is it me or does it look like a Ponitac?
      • 5 Years Ago
      This car looks like very sad whale.
      • 5 Years Ago
      i think this car deserves the trophy for world`s fastest BMW coupe but for the world`s ugliest as well.
      • 5 Years Ago
      In that front 3/4 view from the doors back it kinda reminds me of a Crossfire SRT6. Fast...yes, ugly...yes.
      • 5 Years Ago
      BMW M5 Hurricane by GPower is the fastest Luxury Sedan in the World.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Title: 231 mph
      Body: 227 mph

      Which is it? :P

      Also, I cannot stand the looks of that car. Top speed aside, if I saw that thing driving next to me at legal speeds, I would have to pull over to control my laughter.
      • 5 Years Ago
      did they mean worlds fastest photoshop, because the car shown isn't real.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I can't make out the pictures they used for the reflections. The one on the hood is some sort of structure, as well as the one on the mirror, but the reflection on the panel looks to be some salt flats.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Agreed... Definitely photochoped... Dime a dozen on Deviant Art... SO is that 231mph or 227mph or whatever top speed real?... or fabricated just like the car?
