G-Power BMW M6 Hurricane CS

German car tuning company G-Power delivered the power with this BMW M6, breaking the world record for fastest sedan at a top speed of 370 km/h or 231 mph. Naming it the Hurricane CS, this is the fastest BMW coupe in the world with a powerful twin supercharged V10 engine delivering 750 hp and 590 ft-lbs of torque. To get these astounding numbers out of a BMW, the engineers at G-Power had to install belt driven ASA T1-316 superchargers, and forged pistons from Mahle were used to reduce compression. The pistons from Mahle are exactly the same weight as the stock pistons, however significantly stronger to handle the extra boost from the superchargers. To optimize the V10 engine, a remapping of the ECU was needed for the superchargers.

To handle world record speeds for a production BMW M6 coupe, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires in sizes 255/35 ZR19 are used in the front and 305/30 ZR19 tires in the rear. If you plan on using the Hurricane CS for daily use, 21***8243; Silverstone Diamond wheels with tires that fit them respectively are used, however these wheels are only stable up to 211 mph. A completely new titanium exhaust system was installed that weighs 53 lbs less than the stock unit, and carbon fiber seats were also added to reduce the weight by 26 lbs for each seat. With the huge power gains and extra weight savings, this BMW M6 is able to reach 62 mph in 4.4 seconds, 124 mph in 9.6 seconds, and 187 mph in just 26 seconds.

With those kinds of speeds, G-Power needed to ensure the BMW would be able stop on a dime if the end of the track approached too soon. So they switched the stock brakes with a 50% lighter Carbon-Ceramic system, with 6-piston calippers and large 380 mm brake discs. A G-Power adjustable coilover suspension was added as well, and it has nine different settings the owner can use to set their desired comfort. Exterior modifications include a multipart widebody aerodynamic kit which holds the new fenders, redesigned bumpers, vents in the hood, carbon fiber diffuser and wing package. Now to own the worlds fastest production coupe, be ready to empty your pockets at $477,500
