    BMW M5 Runs 228 MPH

    G-Power pushes BMW M5 to 228 mph

    The G-Power Huriicane RSThis could be the first speed record broken this year, with plenty more to come.

    BMW tuner G-Power has taken the blazing-fast BMW M5 and added two superchargers, an intercooler, forged pistons and some other bits and pieces. The result is a 750-hp, 228-mph missile that topped the Brabus Rocket on the speed chart.

    G-Power calls its car the Hurricane RS, and it made its record run on the ATP High Speed Oval in Papenburg, Germany.

    G-Power developed the blown V10 engine with help from German supercharger manufacturer ASA. A picture of G-Power engine in BMW M5

    The M5 gets a coil-over suspension, aero enhancements, a high-performance brake package and Michelin Pilot Sport SP2 tires to keep it steady at speed.

    G-Power also optimized the fuel mapping to achieve the 750-hp mark. It says the superchargers could push more and the engine, as modified, could produce up to 900 hp.

    The tuning kits are for sale from G-Power. The SK III conversion will push the output of your M5 to 730 hp for about $72,000. But if all you need is 600 hp out of your super sedan, you can opt for the anniversary kit for just less than $20,000. That is, of course, on top of the $85,000 you would pay for a 2009 BMW M5.

    something about the german commentary in this vid is cracking me up right now.
