Could the modified Nissan GT-R in this video clip be the world’s fastest Godzilla?
It certainly seems that way, if by fastest you mean top speed only.
While America’s own AMS Alpha Nissan GT-R recently ran the quarter mile in just 8.62 seconds, making it one of the world’s fastest accelerating GT-Rs, Britain’s Severnvalley Motorsport boasts that its GT-R is the world’s fastest after it reached a top speed of more than 218 mph.
What makes Severnvalley Motorsport’s GT-R run all the more impressive is that it was done on a very wet day and with street tires. The top speed, a claimed 218.01 mph, was recorded using a Racelogic Vbox data.
Nicknamed the “Hulk”, for obvious reasons, Severnvalley Motorsport’s GT-R produces in excess of 1,250 horsepower. As you may have guessed, the list of modifications is a lengthy one and includes items such as a 4.2-liter stroker kit, forged internals, ported and matched inlet manifolds, bigger turbochargers from Garrett, a custom 80 mm exhaust system, high-flow injectors, an uprated gearbox and reprogrammed ECU.
The tuning firm boasts that even in the wet, its GT-R is a full second faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport when accelerating from 110 to 130 mph, which it can do in just 1.47 seconds. Severnvalley Motorsport is now planning a second run once the weather dries up.
