200 MPH Street Race: Audi R8 vs. Nissan GT-R

June 4th, 2015

200 MPH Street RaceThis is a real battle of the big boys. Here is another clip from the MRL, featuring a 1500hp 2010 Audi R8 and a very potent Nissan GT-R in a rolling race on the streets. Both drivers are somewhat close mouthed about their respective steeds but, as they say, “it will all come out in the wash”. The R8 seems to take the initial advantage but it proves fleeting as the mighty GT-R powers past and blasts to over 200 mph, seriously energizing the driver.

The powerful Nissan is built around a 4.1-liter Sonny Bryant drag racing engine with twin 67mm turbochargers (set at 39 psi of boost). The driver seems guarded about the estimated horsepower rating of the GT-R but if the Audi has 1500hp, then the GT-R must be in the 2000 to 2500hp range. What do you think?
