600 hp and 330 km/h are the key figures of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS with a supercharged M3 V8 engine and so the world’s fastest BMW 1 M Coupé comes – once again – from G-POWER

After G-POWER has already created the world`s fastest sedan (M5 HURRICANE RR), the world’s fastest LPG-powered car (M5 HURRICANE GS), the world’s fastest estate car (M5 HURRICANE RS Touring), the world’s fastest 4-seated Coupé (M6 HURRICANE RR) and the world’s fastest BMW M3, G-POWER presents with the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS a new high-speed car.
With the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS, G-POWER is making itself an early birthday present in preview of the upcoming 30Th anniversary next year. And for this special occasion G-POWER has fulfilled itself a heart's desire by building a manufactory automobile based on a 1 M Coupé the way it should have been delivered directly from the M-GmbH.

Coming from the factory the BMW 1 M Coupé already features the front and rear axles of its “big” brother BMW M3. The only things missing are “just” the right engine and the nifty DCT gearbox, in order to match G-POWER’s expectations. Consistently G-POWER went one step further than BMW and implanted the entire M3 V8 engine including the DCT gearbox into the compact body of the 1 M Coupé. But that’s not all, in addition G-POWER installed a supercharger system especially designed for this special edition car, that fits into the compact engine bay of the 1 M Coupé.

Just like the basic car, the production numbers of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS are strictly limited. Starting next year and corresponding with G-POWER’s anniversary, a max. of 30 customers can enjoy an automobile that guarantees pure driving fun. In order to make the dream of the ultimate driving machine come true, G-POWER has faced every challenge. After getting the BMW E46 scene ecstatic with the 550 PS strong G-POWER M3 E46 with integrated 5.0l M5 V10 engine, by the way the only one on the market, this time the choice fell on the V8 engine of the current M3 for the smaller 1 M Coupé. Of course the factory power output of 420 hp is not enough to make the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS the fastest of its class. Being the leading manufacturer of after market supercharger systems for BMW automobiles it is no surprise that G-POWER relied on forced induction for its power output enhancement and developed a supercharger system based on the premium superchargers from ASA.

The result: 600 hp and 580 Nm of torque, achieved through gentle soft charging with just 0,5 bar (relative) boost. Already from 3.000 rpm on the supercharged M3 V8 engine pulls like the standard M3 engine revving twice as much, but than the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS really starts to flex its muscles: from 5.000 rpm on until redline it provides constantly about 40 % more torque than the factory car, this provides an acceleration that feels like being dragged by a bungee cord. This output explosion is based on the heart of the G-POWER supercharger system, the new T1-523 ASA centrifugal supercharger. For its mission with the M3 V8 engine the ASA T1-523 has been literally been tailor-made, to provide the giant need for fresh air of the up to 8.300 rpm revving 4.0 litre V8 engine. But the ASA supercharger, flanged to the engine using an aluminium high-strength mount, is not the only high-tech component of the G-POWER supercharger system. The engineers did not spare any cost or efforts during the development of this supercharger system. Amongst others they even did a sophisticated, computer aided simulation which analyses the conditions of the air-ducting engine parts. The set goal of this extensive research has been to improve the efficiency of the G-POWER supercharger system to the best possible performance. And the result proofs G-POWER right. The supercharger system is capable of reducing the specific fuel consumption of the engine. This shows that G-POWER does not just care about performance but is concerned about the sensitive use of restricted resources like fuel, as well.

A further key component of the G-POWER supercharger system is the complete aluminium cast air box. It houses, apart from the extensive racing air filter, a water circulated boost cooling system with a large water-to-air intercooler located in the vehicles front, ensuring a boost temperature that is at an output optimal level under all circumstances. 8 lightweight integral resonance induction pipes, complete the G-POWER air box that is responsible for the perfect throttle response and optimal torque curve of the supercharged V8 engine. The engine’s modifications made by G-POWER are topped off by a handmade, stainless steel exhaust system that has been especially designed to fit under the 1 M Coupés compact body and at the same time being capable of handling the extremely high flow-rate of the supercharged, high-revving V8 engine with a minimum of backpressure.

Naturally the performance figures benefit from this huge power output improvement. The sprint from stand still to 200 km/h is now completed in 12,7 seconds and the top speed is reached at more than 330 km/h making the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS the fastest BMW 1 series in the world.

Obviously a top speed of more than 330 km/h set extreme demands on the tyres that are mounted on the 20-inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheels. G-POWER’s technology partner Michelin provided high-performance Pilot Super Sport tires in the dimensions 255/30 ZR 20 at the front axle and 295/25 ZR 20 at the rear axle for this reason, making sure the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS is always capable of bringing its brute power to the street.

Chassis-sided G-POWER has gained a lot of experience over the many high-speed cars build in the past years. From this know-how and many joint development projects for world record cars a technologic partnership has developed between G-POWER and Mov’it in the field of high performance braking systems and with KW when it comes to suspensions.

Accordingly the G-POWER CLUBSPORT suspension package has been developed in close cooperation with KW and thanks to a G-POWER setup has been adapted to the special needs of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS. It optimises its road manners at race track level without sacrificing its usability as a daily driver and encompasses a coilover suspension that is independently adjustable for both compression and rebound.

The CLUBSPORT version distinguishes oneself, apart from the adjustable dampers, by support bearings that enable correction of camber or caster according to the individual purpose. Of course the negative acceleration is in the focus of G-POWER, as well.

The G-POWER braking system with six respectively four brake pistons bytes into mighty up to 396 mm in diameter Ceramic-Carbon brake discs. The high performance braking system for the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS has been exclusively designed together with Mov’it according to the specifications of G-POWER in order to match the performance and top speed of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS.

With this set-up, the G-POWER braking system always provides maximum brake force and the braking point remains precise in any case. In addition the G-POWER ceramic braking system reduces the unsprung mass by 50% percent, compared to a system with steel brake discs. Accordingly the cornering and road handling is improved significantly.

Further weight is dropped by adding a bonnet made from Carbon fibre that features the M3 design including a power dome and vent openings. In the rear a lighter Carbon fibre boot lip with an aerodynamically shaped tear-off edge makes for reduced lift.

The G1 V8 HURRICANE RS does not only set benchmarks in performance, but also when it comes to individuality and exclusivity. The interior of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS, upholstered by G-POWER in premium leather and Alcantara offers impressive confirmation of what is possible above and beyond “BMW Individual” equipment. The painstaking work carried out by hand by G-POWER craftsmen goes far beyond simply upholstering virtually every surface with the finest grades of leather and Alcantara. In contrast to many leather workshops, G-POWER takes the time to reshape the original BMW seat cushions. Only thanks to this unique technology can the distinctive look created by G-POWER be achieved in combination with an optimum synthesis of comfort and lateral grip.

As a complete vehicle, the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS includes the 20” wheel set, suspension, brake system together with the installation of the M3 V8 engine including the DCT gearbox, the stainless steel exhaust system and the supercharger system for the power output enhancement to 600 hp, as well as the G-POWER full-leather upholstery to the level illustrated.

G-POWER is building the BMW 1 M Coupé the way it should have come from the factory in the first place..................600 hp and 330 km/h are the key figures of the G1 V8 HURRICANE RS with a supercharged M3 V8 engine and so the world’s fastest BMW 1 M Coupé comes – once again – from G-POWER.


Now that would have seen me dying a number of times over the weekend blasting around the Welsh countryside......

A 135i conversion project by the looks of things!

600 HP AND 330 KM/H. With a M3 V8 plus a supercharger under the bonnet. Now, we are beyond tuning terittory! Basically, I consider this project as more of a tuned M3 than a 1M since now the car not only shares chassis components with the M3 but also the engine, a supercharged one. Only thing left from a 1 series is the body essentials I guess, so why not change the body too alltogether Post-modern times. I believe this can be a good one-off item for a collectioner.

It's cool and all that it's got a v8 in it - but why? Ruins the weight distribution it gets with the n54, which can make over 600hp itself anyway/go to 330km/h with the right gearing..

I disagree, 600hp is an obscene amount of power for a 1-series. The traction control light may burn out...

Whole point of the car was to be very well balanced. This is still pretty cool none the less.

Ehhh kinda pointless. Gonna cost you way to much to get a brand new engine and a dct.
If you want that, get an m3 an supercharge it, with the 1m, go single turbo and have 700hp.

Wheels, color and interior are atrocious. I'm sure the power is cool but I'd rather drive something that looks good as well. This monster just looks ghettooooooo.

I have never seen so many engine conversions on a relatively new car in such a short period of time.

1M is approaching cult status!
