Arrow G-Power "Storm" - BMW 760i with 725HP and 738 lb-ft TQ!

G-Power's creations are never short on power and its latest production, the "Storm," a 760i with 725hp (5500rpm) and 738lb-ft torque (2000rpm) certainly does not buck that trend! G-Power was to achieve these monster numbers by boosting the 6.0L V12 bi-turbos' boost to .9 bar, adding larger injection valves, custom tuning the ECU, and replacing the factory exhaust system. The Storm is claimed to be capable of 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 215mph!

The 760i's 8 speed auto transmission has also been modified to deal with the massive increase in torque. The suspension rides on sportier replacements and lowers the ride height by 1.2 inches.

Exterior modifications include a full G-power aero kit with kevlar vented hood, front and rear bumpers, CF sideskirts, trunk spoiler, rear diffuser, quad tail pipes, and 22" lightweight alloy wheels.

Only 10 units of the G-Power Storm will be produced worldwide. The pricing ensures that only a few would be able to afford such a creation. The fully converted Storm 760i is priced at 365,000 (US$495,500 converted) and the long wheelbase 760il Storm is priced at 375,000 (US$510,000 converted).

Interesting!

I like it but why the lip on the trunk again?

Wow look at the size of the rear disc brakes!

i love how aggressive it looks... not sure about the idea of a 700+ hp luxury saloon... but the bumper and diffuser looks a bit AMGish no? maybe its just me.

This is a car delivering serious power. The only feature I do not like are the driving lights, they look like lifted from an Audi.

Looks like a Civic with a black widow body kit...

If I were that engine, I would drain the oil and kill myself.

With the exchange conversion, I would like to believe that this car would be closer to $300K, but with only 10 examples being made, one can only guess.

Although I wonder what the cost would be for one without that hideous body kit.
