Based on the BMW 1 M Coupe, G-POWER presents a new high-speed car, the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS. With the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS, G-POWER is making itself an early birthday present in preview of the upcoming 30Th anniversary next year. And for this special occasion G-POWER has fulfilled itself a heart’s desire by building a manufactory automobile based on a 1 M Coupé the way it should have been delivered directly from the M-GmbH.
Just like the basic car, the production numbers of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS are strictly limited. Starting next year and corresponding with G-POWER’s anniversary, a max. of 30 customers can enjoy an automobile that guarantees pure driving fun. In order to make the dream of the ultimate driving machine come true, G-POWER has faced every challenge. After getting the BMW E46 scene ecstatic with the 550 PS strong G-POWER M3 E46 with integrated 5.0l M5 V10 engine, by the way the only one on the market, this time the choice fell on the V8 engine of the current M3 for the smaller 1 M Coupé. Of course the factory power output of 420 hp is not enough to make the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS the fastest of its class. Being the leading manufacturer of after market supercharger systems for BMW automobiles it is no surprise that G-POWER relied on forced induction for its power output enhancement and developed a supercharger system based on the premium superchargers from ASA.
Naturally the performance figures benefit from this huge power output improvement. The sprint from stand still to 200 km/h is now completed in 12,7 seconds and the top speed is reached at more than 330 km/h making the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS the fastest BMW 1 series in the world.
Obviously a top speed of more than 330 km/h set extreme demands on the tyres that are mounted on the 20-inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheels. G-POWER’s technology partner Michelin provided high-performance Pilot Super Sport tires in the dimensions 255/30 ZR 20 at the front axle and 295/25 ZR 20 at the rear axle for this reason, making sure the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS is always capable of bringing its brute power to the street.
As a complete vehicle, the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS includes the 20” wheel set, suspension, brake system together with the installation of the M3 V8 engine including the DCT gearbox, the stainless steel exhaust system and the supercharger system for the power output enhancement to 600 hp, as well as the G-POWER full-leather upholstery to the level illustrated.
