We all know how impressive AMS’s GT-R Alpha package is. It has broken a couple of world records in its time, including a quarter mile sprint time of 8.97 seconds at an astonishing 169 miles an hour and a top speed record of 216.9mph. It’s definitely memorable, but absolutely conquerable. AMS Performance has decided to one-up themselves with their new Alpha Omega package for the GT-R. This package develops no less than 1,602 all-wheel horsepower with a maximum torque of 1,152 lb-ft out of the GT-R’s 3.8-liter, twin-turbo engine. By comparison, the previous GT-R Alpha 12 was developed a total of 1,318 horsepower and 1,014 lb/ft of torque.

The new Alpha Omega package hasn’t even officially been announced, but it has already smashed the quarter mile world record: it managed an impressive 8.6263 seconds with an exit speed of 173.8mph. AMS promises that they won’t stop there either!

Check out the videos attached to see just what this insane Nissan GT-R can do!

UPDATE 04/06/2012: Apparently, 221 mph in a mile wasn’t good enough, so the AMS techs hopped back under the hood and cranked the boost to an insane 29.5 psi. This put the Nissan GT-R at an intense 1,250 wheel horsepower. After a mile the monster GT-R hits 233.1 and its driver Ivan seems ecstatic and starts fist pumping in the car.

Obviously the GT-R didn’t like Ivan taking the credit, so after catching a dip in the runway, the rear of the GT-R lifts up and slings itself sideways, sending its pilot into a deadly 200+ mph slide. At that point we were thinking that a farewell story to this power GT-R was in order, but somehow Ivan manages to calmly keep this monster in check and keeps it from completely spinning out of control.

It wasn’t the most powerful, but it definitely has the engine which exerts enough force to be fast.

I think they are on a mild pressure on achieving the best results that’re why it happened. Maybe it’s a sign that they should not focus more on speeds.

AMS is very wild to beat the world record for sprint of 8.63 seconds at 172MPH. What will happen if most of the traffic population is a car like this?

AMS Performance must be Nissan’s greatest fan; it’s obvious that they did their best on tuning this one.

AMS Performance’s tuning has accelerated its aggressiveness! I think its specifications just got wilder.

The stated figures are deceiving! If I had not watched it, I wouldn’t know that this is powerful enough!

It seems like GT-R enthusiasts are really thirsty for some recognition. It’s amazing that their great desire enables them to enhance this supercar more.

This AMS GT-R has already met its match from SVM, which is the monstrous Hulk GT-R. I want to see the three killer GT-Rs race in able to know which is the fastest of them all.

I am amazed on how they develop their machines to be powerful and aggressive. This company really puts quality to their innovations.

Looking at the figures, the difference seems so small! However, as I watched it, I can’t keep myself from being awed on how much AMS Performance has made it even better.
