G-Power announces E92 BMW M3 GT2 S Hurricane (video)

The E92 BMW M3 may be out of date but it hasn’t stopped German tuning house G-Power from coming up with a fresh, in-your-face kit to keep the V8 passion alive.

G-Power is no stranger when it comes to developing serious aftermarket kits for some of BMW’s finest. As exampled by this M3 GT2 S Hurricane. It comes packed with enhancements in every area.

Starting with the most exciting part; the engine. The naturally aspirated 4.0-litre V8 from BMW M3 is completely rebuilt and uses a longer-stroke crankshaft to take displacement out to 4.5 litres. Attached are some forged pistons and con-rods.

The stronger pistons help compress the forced induction. Yep, under the bonnet is a centrifugal-type supercharger running 11.6psi, resulting in a lift in output from 307kW to a hard-hitting 530kW and 650Nm.

This is sent through a six-speed manual and into a custom limited-slip differential that comes with its own oil cooler. If you take a look at the underbody pic, you’ll see the meticulous attention to detail, and some of the aftermarket suspension and bushes.

Out on the tarmac, G-Power says the speed machine can cover 0-200km/h in just 9.8 seconds, while offering a top speed of 330km/h.

In other areas, as you can probably see, the M3 is don in a bright orange aero kit, including a massive rear wing, bulging wheel arch extensions, custom bumper bars, and a race-like front splitter.
