Oh My… A 2000 HP Nissan GT-R Spins At 218 MPH

In recent years, no car has proven more popular to modify into quarter mile beasts than the R35-generation Nissan GT-R.

While some have proven their reliability with up to 2500 HP on tap, one example in the United States recently came within inches of being turned into a wrecked pile of rubble.

At a standing half mile event, one of the headliners was a 2000 hp GT-R tuned by the masters at Switzer. During a run where the car was tuned to medium boost, it was sent into a violent spin after the finish line before careening across the tarmac and grass at over 200 mph (320 km/h).

It was discovered that the spin was caused by an aftermarket camber arm breaking at high speed and while the driver escaped without injury, things could have been much worse.

As the in-car footage shows, the GT-R was lifted onto two wheels as it span and at one point, the driver can be seen staring at the ground through the side window. Talk about seeing your life flash before your eyes.
