The G Power BMW M5 Hurricane, a car with a name well known to car enthusiasts world wide. Considered one of the world's fastest street legal BMW, the Hurricane is made by G-Power.

The exterior of the Hurricane is impressive at first glance, with the Silverstone 21 inch light alloy wheels. The rims have a bright, graphite coated center and dimply polished outside. The combination is simply beautiful. It is the extremely large wheels that allow a high performance G-Power braking system, with six piston fixed calipers. The Hurricane can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just over four seconds. The engine can accelerate to 186 mph in roughly 30 seconds. This raw power places enormous stress and wear on the aerodynamic tires, brakes and suspension system of the M5 Hurricane which are built to withstand this kind of acceleration.

The five liter V10 engine with an EVO II supercharging system delivers over 700 bhp. The system itself uses a belt driven compressor for each cylinder bank. Because of this system, the boost pressure is limited to point five bars, something that contributes to the G Power BMW M5 Hurricane's power. According to G Power, the most powerful BMW has “specially developed mapping for engine electronics and SMG gearbox controls that coordinate the perfect interaction of all new components.” This is to say that the lightweight engine with high performance pistons gives the engine an even higher speed capability. The V10 engine itself puts out a power output of between 7500 and 8200 rpms.

When it comes to the exterior of the fastest BMW, the G Power BMW M5 Hurricane is designed with light weight carbon fiber, which allows the large air inlets to send cold air to the radiators and front brakes. The M5 includes ABS brakes as well as vented disc breaks on both the front and back wheels. The M5 has a longer and sleeker appearance due to its lightweight body build. The rear axel lift is reduced by a spoiler lip attached to the trunk lid. This improves the aerodynamics of the car, and allows it to accelerate faster and gain a great deal more speed.

The interior is sporty, with most components made from exposed carbon fiber trim. The M5 Hurricane boasts an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel covered in luxurious G Power Kjerba-Nappa leather. The BMW M5 Hurricane has everything a luxury sports car would ever need, including a comfortable and rich leather interior, a high level of safety as well as amazing design and an extremely powerful engine. Soon enough, engineers will build a version of the M5 that can run a one point zero bar boost. The G Power BMW M5 Hurricane is a sporting luxury. G-Power is said to be expected to reveal the details about the latest tuning of the new M5 by the end of the month.
