Brabus was founded back in 1977 and specializes in tuning for prestigious vehicles from Mercedes-Benz, Smart and Maybach. The tuning company is famous with the performance upgrades offered for the most powerful Mercedes' engines. Furthermore, Brabus offers entire aerodynamics packages for almost every available model as well as a number of interior modifications.

G-Power was founded 6 years later than Brabus. The specialists from G-Power specializes in tuning BMW cars. The tuning company became very famous recently with their several world records like that one for fastest saloon car in production - M5 Hurricane RR.

It is difficult to say, which tuning company is better, but one thing is for sure – both are just brutal. They fit extremely powerful engines to production cars, enormous rims with ultra-performance tires, huge brakes and proper suspensions. The exterior and interior customization is also at decent level.

To make things more interesting, we can check G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane RR and Brabus Rocket Mercedes-Benz CLS.

Firstly, Brabus Rocket is powered by a  6.2 liter twin-turbo V12 with staggering 730PS (540kW) at 5100RPM and 1320Nm (970 lb-ft) at 2100RPM. Because of safety reasons for the gearbox, the torque is limited to "just" 1100Nm (810 lb-ft). The engine was modified from a 5.5L V12 engine block -M275.

The performance is superb – 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds flat, to 200 km/h in 10.5 seconds and to 300 km/h in 29.5 seconds. The top speed is 365.7 km/h as this is a world record for fastest street-legal saloon.

The hurricane is slightly slower to 100 km/h – 4.35 seconds, but a lot faster to 200 and 300 km/h - 9.5 seconds and 25.8 seconds, respectively. The top speed is 372 km/h, which is 6.3 km/h faster than the rocket.

G-POWER Hurricane RR stands on 255/35 ZR 19 at the front and 305/30 ZR 19 at the rear high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
