Is This The World’s Fastest Nissan GT-R?

Follow Viknesh

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.

Thanks to Pete for sending in the tip!

  1. .....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.....

    so another useless stat then. no one would ever need to travel at this speed and if they did overtaking at 110mph wouldnt be a concern either....yes im being a cynic today
