BMW M5 G-Power Hurricane RS Touring

German tuner G-Power doesn't like to come in second. At least, not with regard to horsepower figures.

So here is the full set of specs and photos of the G-Power M5 Hurricane RS Touring based on the E61 BMW M5 Touring following the recent high speed jaunt on a German autobahn.

The 5.0 liter V10 twin-supercharged power plant churns out a remarkable 750 PS (551 kW / 740 bhp) and 750 Nm of torque (553 lb-ft). 0 to 100 km/h clocks in at 4.5 seconds while top speed is electronically limited to a record-setting 360 km/h for a wagon/estate model.

With that much power on tap G-Power sees fit to provide acceleration figures for the 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) sprint (9.7 seconds) as well as the 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) one, which comes in at 26 seconds flat.

Most of that power comes courtesy of the G-Power SK IIII RS twin-supercharger system with a twin-scroll, water-cooled intercooler. G-Power also replaces the pistons with forged Mahle units and does an ECU remap.

For the ride are 20-inch G-Power Silverstone Diamond wheels wrapped with MICHELIN Pilot Sport tires in 255/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 dimensions, front and back, respectively. The suspension tuning fits the in-house G5-RS coil-over kit with adjustable compression and rebound rates plus height adjustment too. There's also G-Power's own heavy-duty brake system.

Inside is a complete finish in premium leather and Alcantara, including the roof pillars and headliner, all done in a diamond stitching by hand.

Price in Germany with full leather outfitting is �288.000, including VAT, � 242,016.80 for those buying from outside the country.
