Video: Nissan GT-R Sets World Record on the Drag Strip

Video

8.63 seconds and hitting 172mph on the drag strip? Must be Godzilla.

An AMS GT-R showed up at the Lonestar Motorsports Park during the TX2K12 event and absolutely destroyed the drag strip. Tearing off the line, the GT-R's world record pass was timed at 8.63 seconds and it hit a speed of 172mph.

The AMS GT-R was hard to handle off the line and when the chute deployed, something definitely tore off. HighTechCorvette, the author of the video, was unsure as to what exactly came off Godzilla's rear.
