G-Power supercharges the BMW M3 and makes 710bhp

Fancy a 710bhp BMW M3? If you do then I suggest that you head over to the nearest G-Power dealer and ask for the G-Power BMW M3 Tornado RS. For about 35,000Euros G-Power will give you 710bhp and 700Nm of torque for you to play around with or you just simply need those figures to show off to your friends at the local bistro. I also wonder if the price includes the orange and black paintjob. It should as it costs nearly as much as a brand new 330i.

In one of the slickest power upgrades this side of a supercharged E60 M5, this E92 BMW M3 gets a supercharger system that is called the SKIII “Sporty Drive”. Quite silly in name but it does give the BMW V8 over seven hundred bhp and torque too.I just hope that G-Power also upgrades the noise the stock M3 makes. Or doesn’t make, as it sounds like a droning blender instead of a proper rumbling V8. Blame that on the flat plane crank the engine has.

G-Power claims that this mod will allow the M3 Tornado RS to hit 330km/h (up from a limited 250km/h) and acceleration times that basically warp space and time (or in motoring terms, right up there with the monster AMG V8 Bi-turbos). 0-100Km/h is now 3.7seconds and 200km/h comes right up in 9.5seconds.

I wouldn’t want to be a passenger in one of these when it does those times, especially after lunch. The driver’s seat would do just fine though.
