When a customer from the UAE tasked G-Power with creating a “one-of-one” BMW M6, the German tuner duly obliged with this monstrous BMW M6. Dubbed the G6M V10 Hurricane CS, this is the most powerful vehicle the BMW tuning specialist has ever made!
The car’s 5.0-liter V10 has been upped by 494 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque to give the M6 a Veyron-equaling 1,001 hp and 665 lb-ft of torque.
This tune is so serious that it coud easily be a production car, but the base is almost 10 yo now which is quite old. In fact they focus even more on this gen than the newer ones, and that’s a sign of how good it is.
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-POWER’s various departments handle all the tasks required to turn a customer’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 BMW’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 ‘One-of-One’ 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 ‘NÜRBURGRING SETUP’.
Without going into too much detail, G-Power claims this was largely achieved by fitting a twin-supercharger and titanium exhaust system with race-cats and twin 120-mm tailpipes that emit a F1 car soundtrack. The one-off M6 will now sprint to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds, reach 124 mph in 9.0 seconds and clock 187 mph in 21.5 seconds before topping out at over 231 mph. Exterior enhancements include a full carbon-fiber widebody kit, complete with extended wheel arches housing a set of 21-inch Hurricane RR alloys. The chassis has also been upgraded with massive ceramic brakes and a coilover suspension with “Nurburgring setup.”
Inside, the cabin has been covered in leather, Alcantara and carbon imprint with decorative stitching, there’s a plaque integrated into the roof LED light bar with the owners name, while the center console and parts of the dash are made from clear-coated carbon fiber. Lightweight race-style seats come with carbon-fiber backs and the speedometer now ends at 250 mph.
