German car tuning company G-Power delivered the power with this BMW M6, breaking the world record for fastest sedan at a top speed of 370 km/h or 231 mph.

To get these astounding numbers out of a BMW, the engineers at G-Power had to install belt driven ASA T1-316 superchargers, and forged pistons from Mahle were used to reduce compression. The pistons from Mahle are exactly the same weight as the stock pistons, however significantly stronger to handle the extra boost from the superchargers.
