G-Power LPG-Powered M5 Hurricane GS Hits 333 km/h
The vehicle’s V10 engine received one fully sequential five-cylinder LPG system per cylinder bank. The powerplant uses a SK II bi-supercharger system that brings a 0.6 bar forced induction pressure - each cylinder bank is fitted with a belt-driven ASA T1-313 compressor.
So, let’s get to the figures. We’ll start with the record-setting top speed figure, which sits at 333 km/h (206.8 mph). Returning to a standstill point of view, we can tell you that the car deals with the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 4.6 seconds and only needs 11.4 seconds to top 200 km/h (124 mph).
“A desolate strip of autobahn close to G-POWER headquarters in Autenzell. The final test on the G-POWER development protocol is, as always, the calculation of top speed. With a sonorous growl from the G-POWER SPEED-Flow exhaust, the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE GS lets loose, just a few seconds later reaching its top speed of 333 km/h – a world record for an LPG car. With this world speed record, G-POWER delivers an impressive demonstration that high performance and environmental compatibility don’t have to be mutually exclusive,” stated the press release.
G-Power reminds us that the LPG brings multiple benefits, being around 50 percent less expensive than gasoline and cutting CO2 emissions by about 15 percent.
