Welcome aboard the 1,001 PS G-Power BMW M6 Hurricane RRS, a car that’s undoubtedly as crazy fast as it looks.
And ‘crazy’ is exactly what this car looks like, with that no-nonsense body kit, the two hood scoops, the side vents, rear wing and massive twin exhaust tips. It’s so ridiculous, thank heavens it’s for real and not just “all show”.
We ran an article about it back in May, where we talked about the G-Power Bi-Kompressorsystem and the 1,001 PS power output. It also comes with 900 Nm (665 lb-ft) of torque, which means that there’s literally no situation you can’t overcome when needing to create separation between yourself and another car in traffic.
It’s the motorway however where you can really stretch this thing’s legs – preferably the Autobahn so you don’t get into any trouble with the authorities.
We knew that it needed just 4.3 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) and 9 seconds flat to go from 0 to 200 km/h (125 mph), but what about pushing past that threshold? Here’s the answer to that question. A video showing the M6 Hurricane RRS go from 200 km/h to 350 km/h (217 mph) and needing only around 15 seconds to do so.
The driver doesn’t even bother to downshift into 4th gear before making his final run – since in his first run he was in 4th while passing the 200 km/h mark. In fact, the gear change occurred at 220 km/h (136 mph) and I can’t help but wonder if that wasn’t actually the best way to go about it.
But this guy probably knows best and simply wanted to feel some peak torque at 6,000 rpm before maximum power at 8,000 rpm.
