  • Switzer Performance ethanol-fueled Nissan GT-R

    With ‘just’ 485 horsepower on board, the stock-standard R35 Nissan GT-R is already capable of outgunning all but the fastest and most expensive of supercars. So just imaging what the car could do if output was increased to 900 horsepower! Thanks to the guys at Switzer Performance, we are now lucky enough to see what a 900 horsepower GT-R can do. The Ohio-based tuner has developed a new performance upgrade for the car, which allows it to run on E85 flex-fuel. Building on its previous P800 800 horsepower GT-R upgrade, the guys at Switzer Performance had to modify the fuel system to...

    Switzer and Freedom Autosport team up to take Nissan GT-R on One Lap of America

    Cross-country rally races are the stuff of American legend - and if you dig back further, cross-continental rallies like the Mille Miglia or Panamericana have been favorites around the world almost since the birth of the car. So the 2009 TireRack Cannonball OneLap of America taps into a tradition...

  • Switzer P700 Nissan GT-R

    We've all seen, and mocked, tuner cars that think adding 100lb of fiberglass body kit will add 50hp at the crank, but Switzer Performance is known for a different kind of tuning: the kind that makes serious power. Confining most of their work to Porsche's fine machinery, their latest example steps outside the bounds and gets into dangerous rivalry territory with the Nissan GT-R. Behind the impressive power figures at Switzer is a different sort of perspective as well, however. Tym Switzer, the man behind the Switzer name, wasn't happy with the way most tuners were going about adding power to...
