We all know the Nissan GT-R is a powerful machine, but did you know it’s capable of pushing out more than 2,000 horsepower?
That’s exactly what the folks at T1 Race Development has done with what they call the GT1R, creating an obscene version of the Nissan that registers 2,165.7 hp and 1,302 pound-feet of torque on the dyno. Those figures are good enough to give the GT-R to a quarter-mile time of 7.38 seconds and a top speed of 235 mph in the half-mile.
Founded in 2005 by Tony Palo, T1 Race Development has been a staple in the tuner world for more than a decade. The company’s GT1R uses the stock cast block, meaning it hasn’t been swapped out for a billet block, although the internals are not factory. It has set the horsepower record at 2,276 hp.
What’s even more incredible is Palo showing off that the Nissan GT-R is fully capable of driving on the streets, although we strongly doubt it’s street legal. But hey, who wouldn’t want to take a GT-R with over 2,000 hp to a Dairy Queen drive-thru?
