2011 G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane GS
Downstream of the two ASA compressors, the pre-compressed charge air is brought down to performance enhancing temperatures by the twin-scroll, water-cooled intercooler finished in G-POWER’s characteristic orange. This sophisticated cast aluminium component replaces the series production airbox above the engine, where its short airways facilitate the same spontaneous responsiveness as the series production engine, albeit combined with a considerable benefit in torque. The superiority of the G-POWER compressor system is particularly evident when it comes to low-end torque, which is one weakness in the high-revving concept favoured by M GmbH. At long last, the 5.0l V10 offers impressive power delivery, of the kind that many customers might reasonably have expected from the series production version. Specifically developed mapping of the engine electronics and SMG transmission control ensure perfect interaction of all components.
urther contributors to the high-speed capability of the HURRICANE GS are the G-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.
The G-POWER SK II bi-supercharger system incl. conversion to LPG is also available for the current BMW M5 and M6. The G-POWER SK II bi-supercharger system for 660 hp / 485 kW incl. conversion to LPG is offered for EUR 33,571.43 (net) excl. installation. The 20-inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE CLUBSPORT forged wheel set has a list price of EUR 7,635.13 (net).
