The real Godzilla – or at least the reptilian version of Japanese lore – was never known to be the fastest giant lizard on the block. So when the name pops up on these pages, you ought to know that we’re not talking about the two-legged monster, but instead, we’re pointing to the four-wheeled beast known as the Nissan GT-R.

Affectionately given the same nickname as the fire-breathing lizard, the GT-R is, by itself, already one of the fastest and most powerful cars to come out of the Land of the Rising Sun. So when a tuning house like Boost Logic decides to spike up the GT-R’s performance capabilities, then you’re going to see more and more of this type of world records from ‘Godzilla’. In this particular video taken over the weekend at Texas Mile, we have a Boost Logic-tuned Nissan GT-R setting the world record for a standing mile speed of 203.6 mph.

Whereas other vehicles can only dream of reaching these speeds, the Nissan GT-R seems to do it so effortlessly. Then again, that’s why it’s called Godzilla and it doesn’t need to do a whole lot to strike fear in the hearts of many.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Nissan said the GT-R-specific Nismo tuning parts used in the race will be available as accessory options this summer.

Nissan did this exciting thing when it breaks the record and now on a standing mile speed of 203.6 mph.

Well, it wouldn’t really be a wonder if it is that fast, I mean it was able to outran some Porsche lap time for the Nurburgring track, why not set another record for the Texas Mile right.

Amazing tail pipe, looks like the F18’s rear tail pipe. I guess AMS GT-R has found his match, I hope we can see them both head to head on track soon.
