1,100 WHP Nissan GT-R Clocks 235 MPH Top Speed With Ease

Give any Nissan GT-R a piece of empty tarmac and it will accelerate at blistering speeds. However, give a tuned GT-R the same space, and it will make sure your eyeballs are forced into the back of your skull.

This modified GT-R is a 2009 model that has had extensive modifications made to its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, to the point where it now delivers 1,100 hp to the wheels as well as 850 lb-ft (1152 Nm) of torque.

In a run to explore the top speed of the car, the driver sets off quite slowly and doesn’t seem to pin the throttle until about 100 mph (160 km/h), by which time the car has already driven down a decent portion of the runway. Nevertheless, the Japanese hypercar slayer has enough grunt to blitz past 200 mph (320 km/h) before maxing out at 235 mph (378 km/h).

Throughout the years, we’ve become very accustomed to heavily-modified GT-Rs reaching truly frightening speeds, but it is something else to see the car hit 235 mph with such ease. In fact, given its output, we think that with a longer final drive, it might have been able to crack the 250 mph (402 km/h) mark. But hey, we guess its owner will be pretty happy with “just” 235.
