The R35 Nissan GT-R has been around for quite a while now and in that time it’s been subjected to all kinds of upgrade treatments, many of which boosted its power output to over 1,000 horsepower. The latest thousand-horse GT-R is built by the German firm Mcchip-DKR.
Naturally, in order to extract that kind of power out of the V6 bi-turbo engine of the Nissan GT-R the DKR boys had to go way beyond their routine, which is whipping the ECU out of the engine, uploading some new codes on it, and putting it back in again. Oh no. This bad boy needed a lot more work before it was ready.
The tuner has upgraded the turbochargers in this engine, installed a massive Alpha intercooler with bespoke pipes, replaced the air filters and ignition system, customized the cylinder heads, modified the exhaust and the transmission, and yes, upgraded the software as well. They also uprated the suspension, the speedometer, and the engine’s lubrication with specialized material.
It’s been a lot of work, but when you read the power figures they have achieved, you would agree it’s been worth the effort. This beast of a car now produces 1,121 horsepower and 1,099 Nm of torque. To give you an idea what that means in terms of raw performance, it takes this Nissan GT-R 4.2 seconds to go from 100 km/h to 200 km/h!
