Demonic Nissan GT-R Has 1600 HP, Hits 211 MPH In Half A Mile

The Nissan GT-R is 11 years old now, having been launched in 2007, but the Japanese brand has made sure it remains competitive by constantly upgrading it.

Over the years, we have seen different models rolling off the assembly line, and several special editions, all of them with plenty of grunt to put much pricier supercars into their corners.

Of course, during all that time, the GT-R has also become a darling of the tuning world. The example depicted below features some high-end modifications that are the work of Gosha TurboTech, a Russian company specialized in tweaking high-end machines.

Watch: This Nissan GT-R Was So Loud That It Got Banned From The Nurburgring Track

With a massive 1,600 horsepower available on tap, it’s almost three times as powerful as the stock 2017MY GT-R, and it has about 100 hp more than the Bugatti Chiron.

This GT-R, which by the way is wearing a hellish-themed wrap, wowed bystanders at a drag racing event in Germany not just by its looks, but mostly by running the half-mile at 340.90 km/h (211.83 mph). So, the eccentric wrap is definitely fitting as all hell breaks loose when the driver puts the pedal to the metal, as you can see in the following video.
