Most of car enthusiasts will agree that the Nissan GT-R is a future classic with well-maintained and special editions alike to command big bucks from collectors in the years and decades to follow after production ceases. If we had to pick out one virtue that stands out the most, it would be how blazingly fast it is.
It’s not only fast around a track circuit, but also in a straight line, thanks to both the power from the twin-turbo six-cylinder engine and the tremendous grip from the chassis, electronic components and sophisticated all-wheel drive.
You can see just how fast it is in this street-drag time meeting in California where a tuned GT-R with around 560-horses according to the owner) went up against a multitude of modified American muscle.
“We were invited to a daytime street race event out in the boonies of California to hang out and street race all day long,” said the poster of the video. “One car that was willing to throw down with anyone was this bolt-ons GT-R from the Bay Area. The street wasn’t hooking the greatest at times, giving this GT-R quite the advantage.”
