Still I would never buy a Bemmer but damn............


BMW Hurricane breezes 250mph

The world's fastest BMW isn't a 316i piloted by a psychopathic photocopier salesman. It's the G-Power Hurricane M5.

The tuned two-tonne 5-Series uses the M5's five-litre V10, hugely invigorated by twin superchargers that spin at 100,000 rpm, ramping power up to a hurricane-like 730 horses.

There's a higher final drive, overhead intercooler, bigger oil cooler and heavily remapped ECU, plus a slew of other handling and traction mods like a new front end with bigger ducts and rocker panels, a boot-mounted lip spoiler, carbon fibre wind diffuser to keep the car riveted to the road, 21-inch Dunlop rubber and enormous 400mm six-pot brakes.

Even though the world's hottest BM reached 225mph during testing, German boffins were disappointed because of rain and snow on the track. They say that on a fine day with no wind, the Hurricane would be good for over 250. Zero to 60 isn't that impressive at 4.2 seconds (really? - Ed), but once the Hurricane gets to 100mph it's capable of pulling away from anything this side of a McLaren F1.

You can buy a fully-converted version of this definitive ubersaloon for £175,000, or upgrade your M5 into one of the fastest cars in the country for the (relatively) bargain price of £60,000. So much cooler than a Ferrari.

I would be surprised if it lasted 10k miles. High stressed tuner motors mean short longevity and sucker buyer.

Just so.

I do have to say, a nice '02 530i would look awfully great waiting in the front driveway, maybe, with someone like, say, Dana Delany waiting for me in the front seat!!
