These days BMW’s M5 is having serious competitors, with the Audi RS6 breathing out 580 bhp out of its V10 engine and the E-Class from Mercedes Benz powered by a V8 with 514 bhp. Thanks to that it was about time for a midlife upgrade for the BMW5, to match his rivals. Several tuning companies have already proven that a turbocharged M-engine can do wonders, and one such company is G-Power.

The German tuner added a twin-turbo on the M5 producing around 730 bhp. That’s close to a 45 % increase on the standard M5’s 507 bhp, knowing the standard car is by no means slow.

During a recent Nardo high speed test, the Hurricane M5 reached a top speed of 201 mph (322kmh) but had to give up because of an electronic problem. According to developers, it can easily reach speeds of above 218 mph (350kmh).
