Switzer Ultimate Street Edition Brings GT-R to 1,000 HP
Well, this didn’t stop US tuner Switzer Performance from releasing a 1,000 hp GT-R, which also promises to be good as a daily driver. Dubbed the Ultimate Street Edition, the car is a”pussycat” if we use Switzer’s words.
The six-cylinder engine block is stock, but Switzer added new pistons, piston rings and pins, connecting rods, camshaftsm as well as a new set of liquid-cooled turbos, intercoolers, a new radiator and transmission cooler and remapped the ECU. The engine also uses a stainless steel exhaust and is mated to a custom Sheperf gearbox.
To handle the extra power, the car uses a set of lowering springs, comes with nano-carbon brake pads and rides on custom lightweight alloy wheels.
Let’s hear what Tym Switzer, head of the company, has to say about the Ultimate Street Edition: “[This is for] people who want a 1,000-plus-horsepower car that they can drive comfortably every day, to the track or the office or the grocery store, on the highway or in bumper-to-bumper traffic."
"This car idles smoothly. It shifts smoothly. There's no deafening exhaust or horrific gear whine. There is none of the harshness of most 'tuner specials,' and we even managed to keep the highway mpg in the 20s,” the manager added.
