When I think of propane gas, I think of my Weber barbecue grill, or maybe even my vertical smoker. I don’t think of 660 horsepower Bavarian übersedans that can get me to sixty miles per hour in less than 5 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 201 miles per hour. If the mad scientists at Germany’s G-Power have any say on the matter, my perspective on LPG powered cars is about to change.

G-Power started with a Hurricane RS, converted it to run on LP gas and bolted on a G-Power SK II bi-supercharger. Next came their Speed-Flow exhaust system, a coil over suspension, upgraded brakes and 20” Silverstone Clubsport wheels shod with Michelin rubber. Turning those expensive 285/30-20 tires into white smoke simply takes a generous application of the throttle; if you buy this car, it’s probably a good idea to keep a tire retailer on speed dial. It’s definitely a good idea to keep an attorney specializing in traffic law on retainer.

The Hurricane GS has earned the distinction of being the world’s fastest LPG vehicle, and G-Power would be happy to build you one of your own. You need to ship them your current M5, then write a check for $43,500 and wait for delivery. If you just like the wheels and tires, G-Power will make your current M5 look like a Hurricane GS for a mere $9,900. There’s no word if a bun-warming-rack is an underhood option, but I suppose you could build one easily enough.

I’m not generally a fan of green cars, since they’re usually as amusing to drive as a golf cart, but the Hurricane GS could change my perspective on that. If saving the planet means I have to drive a 660 horsepower barbecue grill, so be it.

G-Power has brought on the new Hurricane GS, based on the BMW M5 (E60). They claim this model to be the fastest LPG-powered vehicle on the planet. The Hurricane GS has clinched the fastest LPG car title from the AC Schnitzer GP3.10 gas powered BMW 3-Series Coupe (E92) which hit a top speed of 318.1 km/h.

The Hurricane GS is brought with an SK II package with an LPG conversion along with two ASA superchargers, a water-cooled intercooler, and a remapped ECU. The 5.0 liter V10 engine has the capacity to offer an output of  660 PS (485 kW / 650 hp) and 650 Nm (479 Nm) of torque.

This engine can speed up the car from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 11.4 seconds. The top speed is claimed to be 333km/h (207 mph).

It is notable that LPG is said to be 50% less expensive than petrol and this package will cost you a whopping €33,571.43 ($43,400) and you’ll have to pay extra for the installation.

After the installation, the CO2 emission from the vehicle is expected to be reduced by 15%.
