    Default bmw coupe hits 230 mph

    BMW coupe 230 mph G-Power M6 Hurricane CS

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/attach...1&d=1284141986

    looks like there stepping things up

    M5-based Hurricane RS, and straps a duo of superchargers onto the 5.0-liter V10, boosting the coupe's output to 740 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

    titanium exhaust, carbon fiber seats 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, 124 mph in 9.6 seconds, 187 in 26 seconds and on to a claimed top speed of 230 mph – making it the fastest road-going BMW coupe on Earth.

    It's all relative though - a race car from 1970 would run rings around this BMW
    The Porsche 917/30 (CAN AM Series 1580 bhp): -

    • 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 1.9 seconds
    • 0-100 mph (160 km/h) in 3.9 seconds
    • 0-200 mph (320 km/h) in 10.9 seconds
    • top speed > 260 mph (420 km/h)

    Makes this BMW look a bit unremarkable for a £300k car, some 40 years later.
