3,000 HP+ Nissan GT-R Sets 6.88 Second 1/4 Mile

In the never-ending pursuit of building the world’s quickest street-legal Nissan GT-R, the record has fallen once again.

Over the weekend, Extreme Turbo Systems brought their 3,000 hp+ GT-R to the drag strip and set a new quarter mile record with a 6.91 second pass. During that run, the boost was taken to unexplored heights and the Japanese supercar span its wheels for most of the run, coming within inches of crashing.

Eager to beat its own record, ETS dialled down the boost and were able to set a blistering 6.88 second past at 222.93 mph (358 km/h).

In recent years, ETS has traded blows with AMS Performance and Ekanno Racing to build the world’s quickest GT-R. With a new record set, competition between the tuners will likely heat up further.

    wholly crap that is amazing. the driver has “brass balls”

  • S3XY

    Transported to a drag strip via trailer. Burns tires and gas. Sets a meaningless time. Loaded back into trailer. Modded more across following months to achieve .8 millisecond quicker drag time. Repeat. Lol.

    • Six_Tymes

      s3cy: wake up in the morning, log onto the internet with a depressed out look on everything in life except myself. post utterly dumb posts on carscoops. com, repeat. lol

      It’s sad when you have to upvote your own comments.

        I gave him another up vote so he wouldn’t feel so bad. There there, you really are S3XY.

    • Take the L and call it a day.

    Except NHRA Pro Stock is capable of 6.40’s at 220+mph with HALF as much horsepower from normally asperated engines.

    While this is cool….it ain’t that cool.

    Damn thing should be in the 5’s with THAT much horsepower.

    • serge charles

      and HALF as much weight. This car started life as an actual production car not some monotube carbon fiber funny car whose sole purpose is to go in a straight line once and have its engine rebuilt. Not Comparable.

      • warpsp

        Pro Stock Cars are doorslammers..NOT funny cars.
        this just another BS Import tuner lying about HP claims..
        3200lbs + 3000 hp = 5.9 ETs NOT 6.9s…Period
        that engine produces 1700hp MAX..
        but you are right,,NOT comparable (with these fake stats)

        • serge charles

          “Door slammers” weigh 2300lbs which was my point. And there’s more to a 1/4 mile time than weight and hp. But you know that because you know what a “door slammer” is. So you just put that up assuming I didn’t know to make a point that you cant prove simply because you have a hard on for mocking “import tuners” good job. Oh and here is a 1700hp GTR pulling a 7.98 but they must be lying too.

            LOL You got all the standard Import fanboy talking points.
            Been here, done this, you have no clue how acceleration works,typical…
            This is something called “math” u should research this rare subject.
            Perhaps,you won’t sound so silly next time…
