AMS Performance has continued development of the world’s first six-second, street-legal Nissan GT-R, which is now looking to go faster than it ever has before on the drag strip.
Earlier this year, this car, owned by drag racing enthusiast Gidi Chambi, ran a record 6.937 second quarter mile, thus becoming the quickest GT-R on the planet. Equipped with a host of mechanical modifications and a new rose gold chrome wrap, it’s possible we might be looking at the world’s quickest Nissan.
While the car, affectionately known as Alpha Queen, is still street-legal, it is a far cry from a standard GT-R.
In fact, the engine is totally new and delivers over 3,000 hp. However, to AMS’s credit, it does retain a six-cylinder, twin-turbo setup like any other R35, although the turbos now stick out of the front bumper.
Expect to hear more about this GT-R if it does indeed set a new quarter mile world record. In the meantime, enjoy these videos of the craziest incarnation of Godzilla yet.
Day 3 of testing here in Gainesville. New best 60' of 1.19 🏁 Piece by piece we are working to improve and learn each part of the 1/4 mile run and each part of the car until we are ready to go for a big power 6 second pass. A few tweaks will be made before a record setting attempt is made. Getting a ton of seat time and feeling more and more comfortable in this beast. @amsperformance #obprestigeauto #r35 #gtr #amsperformanceA post shared by OB Prestige Auto (@obprestigeauto) on Dec 6, 2017 at 5:43am PST
