AMS Performance set a new world record with their updated Nissan GTR Alpha 12, clocking 9.052 seconds ET @166.66 mph. This simply staggering record is the result of 1,300 whp at 35 psi of boost. Amazing, but then the GTR itself is an awesome car to begin with! Only two days ago you saw on Top Gear how it humiliated Jaguar XKR-S with its launch control. The standard car has only 500 hp and did that. We don’t particularly like the GTR, but we have to say, the performance is mind-boggling.
