• G-Power sets a new BMW M3 top speed record with a 209.775 mile per hour run in their SKII supercharged E92 M3

      Congratulations to G-Power for setting a new M3 top speed speed record and breaking their own record of 333.1 km/h (206.979 mph) with a 337.6 km/h (209.775 mph) run. The speed is measured by a VBOX as shown in the video below and appears to have been done in Germany on the autobahn. It definitely is quite nice that the Germans can simply take to their local highway to set a top speed record whereas if someone attempted this in the USA they would be put in prison for life after being hunted down by the National Guard, Air Force, a dozen drones, and a Swat Team.

      Politics, overreactions, and stupid regional laws aside congratulations to G-Power on taking an M3 equipped with their bolt on SKII supercharger kit and raising the bar. 209.775 miles per hour is very fast and that makes this the fastest recorded top speed for an M3.

      It will be interesting to see how long G-Power is able to retain this record for or if anyone intends to challenge them.

        I have a feeling boost was cranked up a little and some race fuel was used.

        Why would it break apart?

        Not to mention the national guard, police or swat would not be able to spike strip that car or keep up with their "Awesome" vehicles!

        1151 humvee 0-60 to 21 seconds!

        Ok but I think this top speed record is well within reach.

        That's impressive - very impressive. It was still slowly climbing when he left off - I am guessing he had another 5-10 MPH in that? 210 MPH BMW M3 - that's nuts.

        Compared to an E46 M3, I think the E90/2 is much more stable/solid at high speed. I am comfortable in the 140-150 range - and would not say the same about my E46. It's a good car.

        lol - true, however that's if you get spotted AND they have a helicopter already in the air. I would guess that a highway patrol seeing a car fly past them at 200+ MPH would not pursue a chase just because of the sheer nonsense of it. Chasing someone going 200+*MPH is only going to increase risk to other people - and I am hoping most police wouldn't chase.

        You are right on the radio though - but it would be pretty hard for a cop to grab the license plate of a 200 MPH M3 Click here to enlarge

        Easily done in the USA. Just sign up for the Texas Mile.

        You are right. If you just flew by in a blur at 200 MPH the cop would have a reduced chance at nailing you.

        I was thinking more of a high speed chase scenario, bit you are right again in that police don't give chase with cars when the speeds are that high, and it's not like you just jump in a helicopter, fire it up and take off like a passenger car.

        I really doubt they would just let you get away without at least trying to catch you. That's when the radios come in. They don't necessarily need a plate, just a description. And if you do get caught, I think in some states you go directly to jail for going that fast. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

        However, all you need to do is scout out a section of highway with another car to make sure it's clear (of cops and other cars - you don't want to kill anyone). The cover of darkness always helps as well as knowing your exits.

        That's not a top speed run it's a mile sprint.

        Yeah, you are right... I usually either do my high speed runs early in the morning (like 4a) when no one is around, or when no one is around in general/randomly. I wouldn't want to get nailed doing 200 MPH - I am sure depending on the officer, your name would be pasted all over the paper/television/etc. - wouldn't be good...

        I am not sure what reminded me of this, but I used to go to school (high school) with this really crazy kid. He had a minivan that was somehow very quick (I am not sure what he did to mod it, but it was quick). He would drive around town blowing stop signs - but would flip off his headlights before he intersected the streets. I am still not sure to this day what ever happened with him - but I remember thinking he was going to kill himself and anyone that got in his way. Point is, these are the people that deserve to go to jail/get in serious trouble/etc. - as they have absolutely no regard for human life. Driving a minivan at 70 MPH without headlights in a residential zone is one thing... Driving 200 MPH in a properly built M3 is a whole 'nother story. Explaining either of the situations to a police officer?? LOL - good luck with that. Click here to enlarge

        LOL, I would be thoroughly impressed if you could jam a modern law enforcement wireless system. This is not citizen band radio anymore. These are sophisticated digital radios operating with robust modulation schemes specifically designed to be able to operate in noisy RF environments. Jamming the radios would likely get you in a lot more trouble than driving 200 mph.

        A wise man once told me only break one law at a time.
