1001 HP – the strongest G-POWER of all times
The goal of G-POWER as an engineering-based manufacturer is to help die-hard enthusiasts realise their four wheeled dreams through the creation of ultra-exclusive “One-of-One” cars.
The core of this philosophy is the uncompromising implementation of ideas sans the restrictions normally encountered in the course of conventional vehicle development. Underpinning this concept is the comprehensive automotive engineering knowledge of G-POWER as a manufacturer.
From first concept though design, technical development to manufacturing at an OEM level, G-POWERâ€™s various departments handle all the tasks required to turn a customerâ€™s dream into reality.
A prime example of this process in action is the G6M V10 HURRICANE CS ultimate, which has just been delivered to its owner in the United Arab Emirates.
The seed of the idea for this project was the customers desire to own the ultimate sportscar, based around BMWâ€™s high-revving V10 and its Formula 1 evocation.
With a BMW M6 E63 as the base car, G-POWER set about the comprehensive modification, optimisation and refinement of virtually all core areas of the car, meaning bodywork, engine, chassis and interior.
The most obvious change at first glance is the HURRICANE Wide Body Kit, whose extended wheel arches, large air intakes and front and rear aerodynamic addenda lay the foundations for the significant chassis and engine upgrade work.
Developed in the wind tunnel, the HURRICANE Wide Body kit takes styling cues from the key elements of the M6 design and harmoniously blends them with the G-POWER philosophy for a more purposeful look. This bespoke carbon-fibre body kit highlights the exclusivity of this â€˜One-of-Oneâ€™ edition.
The G-POWER 5.0L V10 engine delivers the punch promised by the aggressive external appearance. The headline numbers of 1001 hp / 736 kW and 900 Nm of torque ensure that the G6M V10 HURRICANE CS is actually as fast as it looks. With an optional taller final drive, it can achieve a top speed of 372 km/h.
To realise this, every component in the well-proven G-POWER SK III supercharger system has been revised and optimised for life in this rarefied strata of engine performance.
This uprating process begins with the optimisation of the cold-air intake system with Ram Air effect ducting, enlargement of the charge air coolers, water and oil coolers, and extensive testing of the revised engine control software applications.
At the other end of the engine, an ultra-lightweight titanium exhaust system with Racing Kats lowers backpressure and releases the exhaust gases via two centrally positioned 120 mm diameter tailpipes, with a subdued Formula 1 style soundtrack.
To ensure that the chassis of the HURRICANE CS G6M would not be overwhelmed by the monstrous engine power, the engineers embarked on a comprehensive suspension upgrade that has been thoroughly track tested and signed off as the G-POWER â€˜NÃœRBURGRING SETUPâ€™.
This consists of fully adjustable coil-over suspension that lowers the centre of gravity and ensures unerring stability at speed. To counter the cars huge speed potential and lower unsprung weight, the four-wheel ceramic brake system uses 400 mm vented brake discs to help the driver of the G6 M HURRICANE CS ultimate stop safely at all times.
The massive G-POWER ceramic brake discs sit comfortably behind 9.0 and 10.5×21-inch HURRICANE RR ultra-light forged alloy wheels wrapped in 255/25ZR21 and 295/30ZR21 Michelin tyres. Among the lightest wheels available in these sizes, they perfectly complement the design ethos of the G6M HURRICANE CS ultimate.
From behind the wheel, it quickly becomes apparent that G-POWER has created a top-class cabin to match their cars exterior and powertrain. Almost all surfaces are covered in high-quality leather or Alcantara, featuring an innovative carbon imprint.
Using BMW M colours, the trim has been painstakingly handcrafted with highlights such as the â€˜DIAMOND-stitchâ€™ decoration. Finest leather is even used in the footwell area, and the A, B and C-pillars and Alcantara headlining also feature decorative stitching.
A special highlight is the G-POWER plaque integrated into the roof LED light bar. This bears the name of the owner, and testifies that this unique vehicle truly is One-of One.
The ultra light race style seats have carbon-fibre backs and hold occupants firmly in place at speed. The G-POWER logo adorns the headrest trim. The door trim panels bear the G6M HURRICANE CS ultimate name, and the complete centre console and parts of the dashboard are made from clear-coated carbon-fibre. Last but not least, the specially recalibrated 400-km/h G-POWER speedometer hints at the incredible power and speed of this bespoke supercar.
Once testing was completed to G-POWERâ€™s satisfaction, the G6M V10 HURRICANE CS was dispatched by air to the United Arab Emirates. Initial feedback from its excited owner has been nothing short of ecstatic: Mission Dream Car accomplished!
