G-Power Turns BMW's M6 Into World's Fastest 2 + 2

A couple of months ago, G-Power unleashed its BMW M5 Hurricane RR, a suped-up version of the M5 that was capable of speeds over 231 mph, making it the fastest production sedan on the streets, according to the tuner. Now G-Power has another virtual trophy to put on its shelf: a tuned BMW M6 that it says is the world's fastest two-door four-seater.

Like its last one, G-Power delivers on this tune. The shop adds 293 hp by bolting twin superchargers to the M6's stock V10. Other engine mods include a new air-cooling system, Mahle pistons and tuned engine mapping. So what you're left with is the same potent, 800-hp V10 engine that the company used in its M5 Hurricane RR.

Helping to effectively harness every horse of that huge engine, G-Power boosts aerodynamics with a carbon front skirt and big tabletop of a rear spoiler. Other additions include a coilover suspension system, high-performance brakes, black 20-inch 'Silverstone Clubsport' alloy wheels wrapped up in 255/35 ZR 20s in front and 285/30 ZR 20s out back.

So what's the company's claimed top speed that gives it world-record-type bragging rights? Over 229 mph, a little slower than the M5 Hurricane RR, but pretty damn fast just the same. Meanwhile, the car jets to 62 mph in 4.35 seconds.

For comparison sake, our favorite stock two-door four-seater—the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti—tops out just under 200 mph at 199 mph.

Of course, the G-Power M6 Hurricane RR will cost a pretty penny, about 345,000 pretty dollars to be exact. Then again, the chance to out-straightline a Ferrari in your souped BMW could be priceless.
