NOVATUNE CHIP TUNING APRIL 2017

Power! As Jeremy Clarkson is fond of shouting….
But he should be shouting “Torque!”

M6 F12


Torque is the starting point of it all and an engine’s capability to turn the up/down motion of a piston into the rotating motion of a crankshaft is what it is all about. This isn’t a story about dynos, but what a dynamometer does is calculate power from actual torque. It is a machine that measures the ability of the car’s wheels to rotate a roller of a known weight up to given speed in a period of time. Power is obtained from this via a calculation, with the torque figure playing an important part…

But be that as it may, we all know that numbers like 600kW and 1 000Nm are BIG. That’s like four stock standard Polo GTIs!
And those are the kind of numbers we’ve getting out of one of our most serious project cars yet – a current-generation F12 M6 which we’ve progressively made more and more radical. It’s already the fastest of its kind in the country – as far as we have been able to ascertain – having recently demolished a standing kilometre at just over 275 km/h!

Now it’s time for the next phase and we’ve got a terminal speed of 280 km/h in our sights…

So we’ve raised the stakes, giving our tuning gurus the go-ahead to delve even deeper into their Little Black Book of tweaks and tricks – which included fuelling the M6 with a blend of 95 pump fuel and our new Torque octane-enhancing race fuel.

With it strapped down extra-tight, the big 8-cylinder powerplant almost sent the readouts off the scale: final figures corrected back to the flywheel are now 680kW and 1 019Nm – as we said BIG numbers!

All we need now is to find the time for a trip to ODI, which is where Jacques “The Stiglet” Joubert set the current record of 275.5 km/h, to see if he can rewrite the record books once again!
