The guys over at Switzer Performance are just plain genius. We don’t like playing favorites, but anyone who continuously attacks the engine of a vehicle and then transforms it into a road-kicking, exhaust-snarling monster is just plain great in our books.
That being said, Switzer must not have been content with their P700 and P800 packages because they felt the need to add another package on top of them. Called the R1K, this package starts off with a base P700 or P800 and then adds giant turbochargers and intercoolers, new injectors, ECU, cooling system, new exhaust system, and a new transmission. Adding these components to the stock 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine brings out a staggering 951hp and 804Nm of torque. Some may be pessimistic about this type of performance, but those guys need to check out the two videos provided.

The price for this package is just under $60,000 and that includes the P700 or P800 package. Although this price may seem a little steep for a tuning package, we all have to remember the power this Nissan R35 GT-R can produce. We would happily pay the $60K and the cost of the racing fuel to get this baby to 1000hp. Of course, we may not survive, but we would die happy.

Check out some of the R1K package’s specs after the jump.

No doubt about that Rhian , I really like Nissan for coming up with all new powered GTR. I think every time they released a newer version of that car it never left us disappointed. I can always see something new!

This GT-R is very powerful definely worth the extra 60 grand.

The GT-R easily has this won from a still start. All-wheel drive with comparable HP

Along with the Turbo, GT-Rs take to mods better than most any car, mostly because they can both put the power to the ground.

The GT-R in the video has the Switzer P800 kit ever far from stock.

Wow, those GT-R’s are superb. It can (almost) keep up with a Veyron!

true, that’s a very powerful car. It’s just too fast it can rule the road.

It might actually be faster than the Veyron. I mean it only has 1HP less, but the Nissan only weighs 3800lbs, while the Veyron weighs
4162 lbs. That gives the Nissan a power to weight ratio of 3.8 lbs/HP, while the Veyron has a power to weight ratio of 4.16 lbs/HP.
Therefore, the Nissan should be faster assuming it’s aerodynamics are up to par.
