G Power Unveils M3 Tornado RS With 720 HP
text size: A- A+
To put things bluntly, your vanilla M3 can now be turned into something that has more power than the Aventador, the 458 Italia or the SLS.
The M3 has been fitted with the G Power SK III "Sporty Drive" Supercharger System, a modified crankshaft that increases the stroke, which in turn takes the V8 from 4.0-liters to a full 4.6-liters, a carbon fiber airbox which is 4 Kg lighter than the standard one and a custom cooling system to cope with the monumental power.
The end result: 720 horsepower going to the back wheels... scary but fun.
As a result, the G Power M3 Tornado RS will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and can zoom to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.7 seconds. Top speed - you don’t want to know! What, you do? OK, it’s 330 km/h or 205 mph if you like imperial.
As for the body of the car, this is just as aggressive as before, with a series of aero bits being added. The list of other mods is completed by a set of black 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Super Sport tires, a high performance braking system with 6- and 4-piston callipers plus 396/380mm rotors and a coilover suspension.
You can’t put a price on perfection, but the supercharged system alone costs €35,000 not including tax and destination or fitting. For that kind of money you can get a whole other M3 from the used car section of your paper, but it won’t scare supercars like this does.
