We all know how impressive AMS’s GT-R Alpha package is. It has broken a couple of world records in its time, including a quarter mile sprint time of 8.97 seconds at an astonishing 169 miles an hour and a top speed record of 216.9mph. It’s definitely memorable, but absolutely conquerable. AMS Performance has decided to one-up themselves with their new Alpha Omega package for the GT-R. This package develops no less than 1,602 all-wheel horsepower with a maximum torque of 1,152 lb-ft out of the GT-R’s 3.8-liter, twin-turbo engine. By comparison, the previous GT-R Alpha 12 was developed a total of 1,318 horsepower and 1,014 lb/ft of torque.
The new Alpha Omega package hasn’t even officially been announced, but it has already smashed the quarter mile world record: it managed an impressive 8.6263 seconds with an exit speed of 173.8mph. AMS promises that they won’t stop there either!

UPDATE 04/06/2012: Apparently, 221 mph in a mile wasn’t good enough, so the AMS techs hopped back under the hood and cranked the boost to an insane 29.5 psi. This put the Nissan GT-R at an intense 1,250 wheel horsepower. After a mile the monster GT-R hits 233.1 and its driver Ivan seems ecstatic and starts fist pumping in the car.
Obviously the GT-R didn’t like Ivan taking the credit, so after catching a dip in the runway, the rear of the GT-R lifts up and slings itself sideways, sending its pilot into a deadly 200+ mph slide. At that point we were thinking that a farewell story to this power GT-R was in order, but somehow Ivan manages to calmly keep this monster in check and keeps it from completely spinning out of control.
