The fuel consumption concern has become so intense that even an insane tuner like G-Power to react! They have a collection of fastest BMWs in the world, and now they’ve launched a greener version, sort of, powered by LPG. It is powered by the same 5.0 liter engine converted to run on LPG instead of petrol.
G-POWER M5 HURRICANE GS equipped with one fully sequential five-cylinder LPG system per cylinder bank delivers 660 hp and 650 Nm of torque. Compared with conventional mechanical superchargers, which consume a large proportion of the additional power generated to drive themselves, ASA compressors have an efficiency rating of up to 80 percent.
The benefits of LPG as a fuel are both economical and ecological in nature – not only is LPG around 50% less expensive per litre than petrol, it also reduces CO2 emissions by around 15 percent.
Of course this being G-Power even their low CO2 green M5 is super fast! In fact it is the fastest LPG-powered car in the world by achieving 333 km/h. It does 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.6 seconds. The 2-tonne saloon passes the 200 km/h mark in a total of just 11.4 seconds.
Other features of the Hurricane GS worth mentioning include 9.0 x 20-inch and 10.5 x 20-inch forged SILVERSTONE CLUBSPORT alloy rims clad in 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 MICHELIN tyres, -POWER high-performance braking system and the G-POWER RS coil-over sports suspension, with 9-way adjustability for compression and rebound plus infinitely variable height adjustment.
