A very powerful 2009 Nissan GT-R was set loose at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in Florida five months ago, in almost perfect conditions, achieving an impressive speed during its standing mile run.
At the end of the test, the Japanese supercar hit a surprising 214.224 mph (344.760 km/h). As already mentioned, this is no ordinary Godzilla, as the modifications have brought a massive output increase to its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6.
According to the data released by the team behind the test, the 3,700 lbs (1,678 kg) sports car has1,100 horsepower and 850 pound-feet (1,152 Nm) of torque. That’s at the wheels and not the crank which, in theory, makes it more powerful than some of the most coveted hypercars of the moment, and an absolute beast in the hands of an experienced driver.
On March 9, when this test took place, the Bugatti Chiron, Ford GT and Porsche 911 GT2 RS were also present at the same venue. The outside conditions were perfect on that day, with 73.4 degrees Fahrenheit (23 C) recorded at 10 am EST, surface temperature of 77 F (25 C) and 0 mph (0 km/h) wind speed. At 3 pm, when the team did more runs, the outside temperature was 78.8 F (26 C), surface temperature was recorded at 93 F (33.9 C) and the wind speed was 9 mph (14.5 km/h).
