The 1,100 HP Switzer "Ultimate Street Edition" GTR - /TUNED
It wasn't long ago that driving a 1000+ horsepower car came with many sacrifices. These were race or show cars, not to be used daily. Enter the Switzer "Ultimate Street" GTR. On pump gas, it makes 1,000 horsepower with virtually no downside. On race gas, it makes 1,100 horsepower. And the owner of this particular GTR uses it as his daily driver to commute to work. Is 1,100 horsepower enough to get to the office? We'll find out. **Update** 0-60: 2.5s, 1/4 Mile: 9.4 @ 150, Standing Mile 208 mph.

1,000+ WHP Nissan GT-R by TopSpeed Motorsports
Doug @ TopSpeed Motorsports tunes a 1019 WHP GT-R w/ an AMS Alpha10 turbo kit. This is the only STOCK CAM GT-R to ever break 1000 wheel! Then straight to the drag strip to run a 9.44 @ 155.9 MPH!!! *NOTE: Front drive shaft was removed on Dyno for differential safety reasons. The center diff takes a huge beating on a Dyno at this power level if the front shaft is in the car. This car went 155mph in the 1/4 two days after the Dyno which proves more than any Dyno how much power it is making. Most major shops have started removing the front drive shaft during Dyno do to lots of prematurely worn out center clutches.
Bugatti Veyron vs. Switzer Nissan GT-R (ORIGINAL)
(Sorry I don't know all three of the songs used except for "Wolfmother - Woman" at the 2:30 mark and "Apache In Marrakech" at the .30 second mark.) Two races take place between a Nissan GT-R which left the mighty Veyron eating it's dust early on in the first race. I have a theory that the GT-R could have only gone that fast because it was driven by Chuck Norris:P
