New GT-R Half-Mile World Record

November 30th, 2015

New GT-R Half-Mile World RecordThe place is Texas and the event is WannaGoFast2015. The Nissan GT-R is a familiar one. It is campaigned by T1 Racing Development and the contest in question is the standing half-mile. You don’t want to miss this clip because it includes a world record setting pass (half-mile GT-R) at 235.6 mph. This shatters the previous record and narrowly misses the overall record held by Underground Racing.

Propulsion for the current record holding coupe comes from a 3.8-liter stock displacement V6 engine with a custom billet crankshaft, custom billet pistons, and aluminum connecting rods. Forced air induction is achieved using a pair of 76-millimeter turbochargers with some top-tier hard and soft pipe fabrication. The setup is good for 2,275hp.
