Any time a tuning company decides that a program deserves to have its own teaser, you know it’s preparing a showstopper. And naming that said program "Goliath" only adds to the hype.

That’s what we have now from Switzer Performance, the US-based Nissan GT-R aftermarket specialist, as it recently released an interesting teaser of its program for the Japanese supercar. The package is being touted as the Goliath, and fittingly enough, it carries itself like one with improved performance credentials that are expected to peak at 1,500 horsepower at a shade over 7,000 rpm.

So, how was Switzer able to fit all of those ponies in the GT-R’s 3.8-liter V-6 engine? Surprisingly enough, it did this by using tested and proven parts like intercoolers, plumbing, and the exhaust hardware and modifying them in such a way as to be able to handle the massive uptick in output.

We expect Switzer to divulge more info about the Goliath GT-R in the coming weeks. We’re pretty sure that with a program like this, there’s more to the Goliath than having 1,500 horsepower. At the very least, we expect some exterior mods that’ll do justice to the name it’s been given.

Yes Gary, like sharp knifes, guns and eventually some electric guitars!
Thumbs up, however, great one

As agressive as it looks like on the outside, I can’t stop wondering what surprises you might find on the inside!

Apparently, this car made my week!
Now I’m wondering, how high the costs of this one would be?

Yeah, Debound, that is right, considering what he managed to do with all those ’ponies’ smiley
