Quarter Mile

Riding Shotgun In 1,600-HP Nissan GT-R At 224 MPH Is As Amazing As It Sounds

Hit top speed in a blink of an eye.

At the recent Shift S3ctor Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack, this insane Nissan GT-R which boasts output of at least 1,600 horsepower treated a fan to a 200 mph ride. Having set a quarter-mile time of 7.83 seconds and hit a 219-mph half-mile, this was once the quickest GT-R on the planet. Obviously these so-called “world records” are being broken all the time. But this Godzilla, tuned by Extreme Turbo Systems and Lease Locators Racing, must be one of the most lethal around. Just look at it blowing up on a dyno.

The driver pushes his ride to what he thinks is around the 200 mph mark. In fact, he had clocked a top speed of 224 mph with consummate ease.
