Default G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane RS hits 228.4 mph, breaks fastest sedan record

After holding the record for the fastest street-legal BMW, G-Power has broken the long-standing record of the BRABUS Rocket for the fastest sedan in the world. Last time we heard, the G-Power M5 Hurricane had a whopping 730 horsepower under the hood that helped it reach a top speed of 224 mph.

G-Power now claims that with an additional 20-hp, the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS can reach a top speed of 228.4 mph. The speed has been clocked and certified at the ATP High-Seed test track in Papenburg where G-Power usually tests all its cars.

The extra power for the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS comes from a two modified superchargers. According to the company’s CEO and engineer Christian Stöber, the G-Power Bi-Kompressor system has yet to reach its limit. G-Power says that “we can still improve, if we see the need for it.”

Wow that car is sweet! Looks like I have a last minute addition to my X-mas list. So are the body panels actual carbon fiber or is it just vinyl? I cannot imagine they would go the distance and get carbon fiber side sills.
