A few days ago, a Nissan GT-R Goliath prepared by Switzer Performance became the fastest supercar in a one-mile sprint, with a top speed of 250 mph. Now the same GT-R is being put to the test in the quarter-mile.
Just as it did in the one-mile run, the GT-R Goliath smashed the previous E85-powerwed record, as it zipped down the track in just 8.46 seconds at more than 180 mph, breaking the previous record by almost two-tenths of a second and a 10 mph.
The GT-R set the record at Michigan’s Milan dragway and behind the wheel was Tym from Switzer Performance. After breaking the record, he described how the team managed to establish a new record: "With the Syvecs SGTR system, we are able to manage all dynamics of the vehicle to our best advantage. We don’t have a rev-n-dump launch control, we have launch management. You can see that in the video. Even though we were pushing a little harder than we were in Moscow, the car still accelerated straight and true."
