There’s been an inordinate number of tuning packages for the Nissan GT-R, but one of the more memorable modifications came at the hands of Ohio-based tuner, Switzer Performance, about two years ago. The tuner put all of the cornfields in Ohio to good use by converting the GT-R to run on E85 fuel, leaving the twin-turbocharged V6 engine to deliver a total of 834 HP.
Recently, Drive’s Matt Farah came across the modified GT-R at a runway shootout and asked the driver if he could take a spin. The driver had no problem with that and so Matt Farah got behind the wheel and brought a camera crew with him. According to Farah, the Switzer GT-R is fastest street car he’s ever driven. Most likely that’s because the car runs the quarter mile in 9.7 seconds with an exit speed of 147mph.
