Car, that is rather than a drinking establishment.
A BMW M5-based G-Power Hurricane RR has just set the world speed record for the fastest saloon car, at 232.5 mph, fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Built by German tuning specialist G-Power, the Hurricane RR is powered by a 800 bhp twin supercharged V-10 with 19-inch Pilot Sports used for the record-breaking run, in place of the standard 20-inch fitments.
A weight of 4400 lbs and a top speed of 232.5 mph places extreme demands on the tires and as a technology partner to G-Power, Michelin provided high-performance 255/35 ZR 19 for the front wheels and 305/30 ZR 19 at the rear. For everyday use the G-Power Hurricane RR runs on 20-inch rims with 245/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 Michelins front and rear.
The G-Power Hurricane RR not only set new performance standards for top speed, but with acceleration times of just 4.35 seconds to 62 mph , 9.5 seconds to 124 mph and 25.8 seconds to 186 mph maybe should get one for Bonneville next year.
