G-Power
BMW G1 V8 Hurricane RS


BMW

G-POWER is building the BMW 1 M Coupé the way it should have come from the factory in the first place 600 hp and 330 km/h are the key figures of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS with a supercharged M3 V8 engine and so the world’s fastest BMW 1 M Coupé comes – once again – from G-POWER.

After G-POWER has already created the world`s fastest sedan (M5 HURRICANE RR), the world’s fastest LPG-powered car (M5 HURRICANE GS), the world’s fastest estate car (M5 HURRICANE RS Touring), the world’s fastest 4-seated Coupé (M6 HURRICANE RR) and the world’s fastest BMW M3, G-POWER presents with the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS a new high-speed car.

With the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS, G-POWER is making itself an early birthday present in preview of the upcoming 30Th anniversary next year. And for this special occasion G-POWER has fulfilled itself a heart’s desire by building a manufactory automobile based on a 1 M Coupé the way it should have been delivered directly from the M-GmbH.

Coming from the factory the BMW 1 M Coupé already features the front and rear axles of its “big” brother BMW M3.

The only things missing are “just” the right engine and the nifty DCT gearbox, in order to match G-POWER’s expectations.

Consistently G-POWER went one step further than BMW and implanted the entire M3 V8 engine including the DCT gearbox into the compact body of the 1 M Coupé. But that’s not all, in addition G-POWER installed a supercharger system especially designed for this special edition car, that fits into the compact engine bay of the 1 M Coupé.

Of course the factory power output of 420 hp is not enough to make the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS the fastest of its class. Being the leading manufacturer of after market supercharger systems for BMW automobiles it is no surprise that G-POWER relied on forced induction for its power output enhancement and developed a supercharger system based on the premium superchargers from ASA.

Further weight is dropped by adding a bonnet made from Carbon fibre that features the M3 design including a power dome and vent openings. In the rear a lighter Carbon fibre boot lip with an aerodynamically shaped tear-off edge makes for reduced lift.

The result: 600 hp and 580 Nm of torque, achieved through gentle soft charging with just 0,5 bar (relative) boost.

The sprint from stand still to 200 km/h is now completed in 12,7 seconds and the top speed is reached at more than 330 km/h making the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS the fastest BMW 1 series in the world. Add a a top speed of more than 330 km/h.

Just like the basic car, the production numbers of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS are strictly limited. Starting next year and corresponding with G-POWER’s anniversary, a max. of 30 customers can enjoy an automobile that guarantees pure driving fun.
