Nissan GTR sets fastest quarter mile!

When most people just see a Nissan GT-R, they are in awe of this seminal feat of engineering. This car offers super car performance and practicality that perhaps makes it the best daily driver on the road today. Yet the Chicago based tuning company, AMS Performance, looked at the GT-R and set themselves a monumental engineering challenge. Cue dramatic music; they set out to build the fastest GT-R . To make this daunting challenge even harder the engineers from AMS kept the GT-R’s stock interior and amenities like air conditioning.

To accomplish the task, they endowed a GTR with 1,500 horsepower. That’s 300 more horsepower than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. This car is like showing up to an 8th grade science class with a Polaris missile while everybody else has a stomp rocket.

So did these engineers from Chicago accomplish their lofty goal? The answer is a resounding yes. This car posted the fastest GT-R quarter mile in history, posting a time of 8.97 second a astonishing 169 miles an hour.
Check out the video of this record breaking quarter mile run!

This is the world’s first eight-second R35 Gt-R. This Ams Alpha 12 have horse power. This is the fastest car I’ve ever seen. I want to be a race car driver like this. smiley

Wow, this is really fast and indeed record breaking. That’s definitely a hard to beat record. Those men on the passenger’s seat seems like grasping for their breathe, while the driver seems so relaxed and calm with its breath taking speed.

Wow. This is the fastest car I’ve ever seen. I doubt it’s drifting and bending ability if it is only used on a straight line. Well, I can say that the driver is impressive because he can handle that kind of speed.

Yeah! Its a new GTR but still the same ol’ Skyline DNA!

The 1500 horsepower is insanely power output! No wonder why those motor sports representatives can’t remove the smile on their faces while feeling on how speedy this vehicle. I’m thinking about what is the specification of its engine? It seems that the engineers of this vehicle have amazingly boosted its figure performance.

 haha. The power output of the GTR is quite remarkable! No doubt that this car is faster in the straight line, and it makes me wonder on what will be its performance in the corner? I want to see a race between the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and the Nissan GTR.

I love this car!

Hell! The power output of 1,500 horsepower is kind of an impressive performance and its 300 hp more than the figure of Bugatti Veyron. I wonder on what will be the lap time record of this car in the Nurburgring track?

Although they haven’t showed on how this car was engineered, I can tell from its performance on how many series of testing before they have perfect the high speed of the vehicle!

Wow. I hope this is really true that Nissan now have a car that has 1500 HP. This is rarely an astonishing speed performance. Well, I think Bugatti will have hard time on seeing this one. HAHA
