Watch 1200Hp Nissan GT-R Alpha 12 Drag Race A Veyron Vitesse

It’s all about brute force folks.

You must surely be familiar with the GT Board Youtube channel – best known for filming drag races between some of the most exotic, rare and awesome automobiles ever made, in a clumsy way.

One would think that racing motoring superlatives would require a lot of filming equipment to record their uniqueness and sometimes never-before-documented performance, but GT Board shows us – through the shaky videos – that the job can be done almost properly with an ordinary video camera and amateurish runs.

That said, they’ve improved greatly in their latest video, just in time for us to see a drag race between a hypercar and a hyper-tuned car. An Alpha 12 GT-R pitted against Bugatti’s Veyron Vitesse drop-top. Each car develops around 1,200 horses, to bring a combine output of an outstanding 2,400 Hp rating.

I’m not going to spoil the video for you, but here’s a hint: I’m pretty sure the Bugatti should’ve raced with its spoiler tucked down. As it sits in the video, the titan is in “handling mode”, configured for maximum handling mode and maximum downforce – the rear spoiler alone produces an additional 350 Kg of downforce. And, as we all know, more downforce equals more drag resistance.

Nonetheless, the GT-R proves its worth against the overly-engineered Bugatti, although the race outcome may leave exotica afficionados with a bitter taste.
