G-Power Tunes BMW M5

G-Power

European tuner G-Power is back at it with another off-the-wall project. Starting with a previous generation BMW M5, the tuner has decided to turn it into a more eco-friendly super sedan. Could this be another automotive oxymoron? Possibly, but the performance numbers released by G-Power state otherwise. According to them, their new E60 M5 Hurricane has 660 hp and a top speed of 200 mph. It can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds.

Pretty impressive numbers, so where does the eco-friendly part come in? No, it's not a hybrid. Instead, the tuner has combined their supercharger package with LPG (natural gas) instead of gasoline. On top of the environmental benefits, LPG also costs about half per liter than gasoline and even reduces C02 by some 15 percent. Due to G-Power's expertise in working with BMW V10 engines, they were able to make the required conversion from gasoline to natural gas.
