The Story Behind The World's Fastest Nissan GT-R: Video

Follow Jeff

AMS Performance is in the business of making fast cars much faster. More specifically, they're best known for taking the Nissan GT-R and tuning it to insane levels of power and performance. They do this while also keeping the cars streetable.

This team has the distinction of producing the GT-R examples to run in the nine and eight second range in the quarter mile. They've also fairly recently managed to push their Alpha Omega GT-R down into the seven second range.

They're doing this by producing nearly 2,000 horsepower from the motor, reinforcing the axles, and running the gear with a drag suspension and wheel tire setup. Still, they also drive the car around town calmly... even if the parachute is occasionally still attached to the rear end.

The AMS team recently put together a video that takes a look at the history of their build process with the GT-R. It also dives into the performance figures they set out to achieve, how they achieved them, and also examining what they'd like to do in the future. It's a great look at an impressive car. How impressive you ask? How does 0-60 miles per hour in 1.72 seconds sound? The Alpha Omega can also blow past 200 miles per hour in a half a mile. Still, these guys occasionally take it on runs for lunch through the local fast food stops.
