G-Power has unveiled a tuned up 1M coupe that it says is the fastest one in the world.
Not satisfied with the stock 3.0-liter turbo, the German tuning house swapped out the straight six for the 4.0-liter V8 that powers the M3 E92 Coupe, as well as its complete powertrain with DCT, front and rear axels and stainless steel exhaust. In addition to the M3 parts, G-Power also gave the model an ASA supercharger and aluminum cast air box, among other upgrades.
The power tune takes the stock 414-hp output up to 592-hp and 428 lb-ft of torque, allowing for a 0-62mph time of 4.4 seconds, a 0-124mph time of 12.7 seconds and a 205mph top speed.
M-Power’s last 1M effort hit 429hp and clocked in a 0-62mph time of 4.5 seconds with a 186mph top speed, by comparison.
The German tuning house also modified the model’s interior and exterior, although some of it could be done without. On the outside the tuning house gets a set of 20-inch alloy wheels that house a set of Ceramic-Carbon disc brakes. Tires sized at 255/20 ZR 20 wrap the front set of wheels and 295/25 ZR 20 wrap the rear set. Carbon fiber components replace the hood and boot.
Interior mods include a new set of sport seats and a coating of two-tone Alcantara and leather throughout.
Pricing for the entire package will run $182,900, although it would be nice to find out what the G1 Hurricane RS would cost with just a power tune, because that’s where the model stands out the most.
