Drag race: 1600hp Nissan GT-R vs 1000hp Nissan GT-R vs 650hp Nissan GT-R

October 29, 2021 by

Let’s start with the car boasting ‘just’ 650hp. The only work done to this example is an engine remap, a new air intake and a sports exhaust. This seems modest compared to the other two, but it still produces 650hp and 850nm of torque

Upping the ante a bit we have the 1000hp GT-R. A bit more work went into this one, including hybrid turbos and new rods and pistons. It also has 1,150nm of torque and costs £80,000 all in.

Finally, we’ve brought in the big guns. The last GT-R on the start line has a bored-out engine, from 3.8 litres to 4.1, a rebuilt gearbox and it runs on ethanol. As a result, it has 1,600 hp and 1,630nm of torque. It is pricey though, at £140,000.

It should be the fastest then, but is it £60,000 faster than the other two? Watch the video to find out.
