The ultimate road and track CLUBSPORT machine





G-POWER has its roots in 1970s motorsport. Back then, BMW 02 models were uprated for the track with twin carburettors, high-lift camshafts, and tubular exhaust manifolds.


These tuning packages were also commonly installed on road cars, which were then used on the racetrack at the weekend. This is how the first GPOWER Clubsport models were born.



Today’s G-POWER CLUBSPORT concept as embodied by the M3 GT2 S HURRICANE, is a car that distils experience from 35 years of engine tuning, and seven high-speed world records.



Key Facts: G-POWER M3 GT2 S HURRICANE

• Complete vehicle from the G-POWER manufactory: 292.883.- Euro


(All prices are net.)



When you approach G-POWER for a complete car, their carbon-fibre widebody kit is an obvious attraction. This kit not only reduces vehicle weight, but also provides the big intake and cooling vents, and downforce inducing spoilers that form the basis of a unique road and track weapon.



The wide wheel arches are filled with lightweight forged 19-inch competition grade alloy wheels wrapped in 295/30ZR19 and 325/30ZR19 trackday Cup tyres. Behind them, a racing brake system with ceramic brake discs clamped by six and four-pot callipers front and rear respectively ensures strong and consistent stopping power.



The G-POWER G3M-RS CLUBSPORT uses coilover suspension calibrated to the G-POWER "NÜRBURGRING SETUP" in terms of ride height, and damper bounce and rebound control. Greater handling precision comes from the use of Uniball joints wherever possible on both axles, while the limited slip differential features a separate oil cooler for consistent performance.



Should the worst happen, an integrated fire extinguishing system will quickly put out a fire, and in proper racecar style, compressed air jacks that plug into an external compressor deploy to allow rapid tyre changes during a pit stop.



While the intent of the G-POWER M3 GT2 S HURRICANE is pretty clear from the outside, its racing genes carry through to the cockpit. Here, a  full rollover cage improves structural stiffness and safety, while the deletion of the rear seat saves weight. To this end all the sound insulation material was removed and much of the metal instead covered with carbon-fibre panels.



All the other areas - the dashboard, sports seats and roof headlining - are trimmed in Alcantara with ornamental seams, showing that an otherwise Spartan cabin can have some luxurious accents.



A digital multifunction display replaces the factory speedometer and rev meter, while the G-POWER supplementary display provides the driver with relevant information concerning the well being of the supercharged V8 engine.



That engine is the heart of the M3 GT2 S HURRICANE. Part and parcel of the SK III RR supercharger system installation, the V8 engine was completely disassembled and its internals replaced with lightweight forged pistons and connecting rods and a fully balanced long stroke forged crankshaft that takes its swept capacity from 4.0 to 4.5 litre.



Boosting at up to 0.8 bar the G-POWER ASA T1-724 supercharger lifts engine power from 420 hp (309 kW) and 400 Nm of torque to a spectacular 720 hp (529 kW) at 8,000 rpm, accompanied by 650 Nm of twist.



Performance is correspondingly lifted deep into supercar territory. The G-POWER M3 GT2 S covers the 0 to 200 km/h sprint in just 9.8 seconds, and tops out at 330 km/h - depending on the selected final drive ratio.



With the G-POWER M3 GT2 S HURRICANE, G-POWER once again demonstrates its expertise at tuning the sportiest BMW models, demonstrating why it is the logical partner for someone who wishes to develop a professional CLUBSPORT car.



Similar projects can also be implemented based on the new BMW M2 or the current M3/M4.


Since the company’s founding in 1983, it has focused solely on the tuning of BMW cars and the production of exclusive, handcrafted vehicles. In 2008, G-POWER was integrated into Group ASA, a year in which both brands celebrated their 25th anniversary.



 G-POWER is now one of the few globally active and highly reputable suppliers of exclusive cars. In cooperation with development partner ASA, GPOWER has developed unique versions of BMW’s most important models, and the world's most powerful versions of each, which clearly sets us apart from our competitors. G-POWER holds seven world records:





• Fastest BMW sedan with 730hp G-POWER M5 HURRICANE and a top speed of 360 km/h


• Fastest LPG-powered car with the 660hp G-POWER M5 HURRICANE GS and a top speed of 333 km/h



• Fastest Sedan with the 750hp G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS on the ATP high-speed oval in Papenburg with a measured top speed of 367.4 km/h. G-POWER exceeded its own record with the 800hp G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RR with a top speed of 372 km/h


• Fastest 4-seater coupe with the 750 hp G-POWER M6 HURRICANE CS and a top speed of 370 km/h


• Fastest station waggon with the 820 hp G-POWER M5 Touring HURRICANE RR and a top speed of over 362 km/h (governed)




• Fastest BMW 1 Series with the 600hp G1 V8 HURRICANE RS and a top speed of over 330 km/h



• Fastest BMW M3 V8 with the 610hp G-POWER M3 SK IICS and a top speed of over 337 km/h
