Car makers might have backed off a bot on the horsepower war, but there are always enough mad tuners out there to keep the heat up. A day after we had the Geiger Corvette with 890 hp and 354 kph top speed another German tuner, G-power, comes up with this monstrous BMW M6 called hurricane CS which develops only 750 hp, but amazingly is way faster than the Vette! It can do 370 kph, which makes it the fastest coupe Bimmer ever made.
It uses basically the same engine that G-power put into the M5 a while back and claimed of the fastest four-door saloon in the world. That had 730 hp but somehow it wasn’t enough for Mr.G-power’s taste! So they have remapped the ECU and tweaked the superchargers to get another 20 hp out of it. The peak torque is now 800nm.
On the contrary to the horsepower, the amount of torque is not that impressive. You get way more than that from a standard AMG powered Mercedes. This shortage of torque shows when you accelerate! It takes 4.4 seconds to get you to 100 kph which is honestly slow, you can go mush faster in cheaper less powerful cars on the market today. Of course G-power has tried to save weight wherever it was possible, but it is still not an athlete!
As for the looks, M6 Hurricane features as nice wide bodykit with lots of carbon fiber parts and central exhausts at the back, plus 21 inch Diamond design rims. But they have let the whole thig down by choosing a horrible color for these press pictures!
Like other tuned products at this level, the Hurricane CS costs a fortune, €360,000 to be precise. And that’s where a question pops into your mind: Why should I buy a car that makes me look like a clot while I can get a brand new Ferrari 599 GTB for that money, which amongst all of the advantages, accelerates faster as well !
