Apparently, Switzer’s 1000+ HP take on the R35 GT-R R1K just wasn’t enough for the Ohio based tuner. No, these amazing gearheads had to go and improve on an already fantastic model by getting it up to a staggering 1250 HP. A Nissan GT-R with enough power to rival a Bugatti Veyron SuperSport? We’ll take two helpings and some dessert please.

This new package is called the R1K-X and Switzer Performance has only released this video of the vehicle during its dyno testing for our first tasty sampling. According to the tuner, the 1250 AWHP and 1003 AWTQ was run on VP Q16 race fuel, but a dyno testing with 93 octane pump gas will be uploaded soon.

Switzer, consider our interest piqued and, please, don’t make us wait too long for the entire package.

Hell, I was impressed with the speed performance of the car. I wonder on who will win once this car race against the Bugatti Veyron.

I think the speed performance of the car is impressive. It seems that the figure of the car is similar with car that run in the Nurburgring track.

Is it possible to have a 16 stress cylinder for a sports car? I doubt if that is possible. If ever that it is true, this cylinder of Nissan GT-R is not that reliable. I don’t think it can compete with other sports car out there.

I wonder with such a stress on 6 cylinders (compared to 16 on veyron) how reliable it is. for two or three runs may be?

With those figures, this one seems to be a potential Veyron slayer. But then again, I really won’t place my hopes that high on this unless I see it running on the track.

Well, as I have always said, this one really won’t be able to show its true potential unless it is run around a track. Try running this around Nurburgring and you will be surprised.

Whoah! A Nissan GTR that runs almost 1250hp? That is simply incredible. Seeing the video, I think there’s no doubt it can run that fast. It really blows a speed there.

Im not surprised either. The previous GTR’s RB26 have no problem with 1200+hp. They are small and can handle a lot of psi. This 3.8v6 definitely strong enough to handle power like this.

Well, I really am not surprised that it would post such high numbers in the dyno. But I think the true test of this one is when they let it loose on the track. Hope they release a video of that.
