8-Sec Nissan GT-R & 7-Sec 240SX Meet Up On The Drag Strip

Short of a genuine dragster, road cars that can run in the low 8’s or high 7’s are extremely hard to compete against.

Lucky us, that’s exactly the type of match-up we have here, an 8-second Nissan GT-R going up against a 7-second Nissan 240SX, two lightning quick cars that actually seem to be very well matched.

Also, after they race each other, the GT-R goes on to challenge an Acura Integra, but we’ll let you see how every car did in terms of 1/4 mile times, without giving anything away.

On its second run, the GT-R seemingly gets off to a much better start, even though the top speed reached at the 1/4 marker is pretty much identical in both runs.

Let us know what type of tuned supercar or stock hypercar you’d feel comfortable with taking on the likes of these two Nissans.

Also, don’t mind the 240SX crossing the line first since these were timed runs and the GT-R driver’s slower reaction time off the line doesn’t necessarily mean his overall time was compromised.
