It seems nobody told Ali, the Nissan driver in the video at the bottom of the page about the infamous rivalry between the Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911 Turbo. As a result, the Godzilla handler decided to turn his machine into a... Lamborghini slicer.
Jokes aside, the R35 GT-R and the Lamborghini Gallardo are probably the two most popular platforms in the world of half-mile drag racing nowadays, so it was only normal for this Nissan to embrace the Lambo assassin role.

Heck, thanks to the insane wrap of the Japanese supercar, it also tries to steal the show from Raging Bulls as far as appearance is concerned, but this is another story for another time.

Returning to the tech side of things, the twin-turbo V6 under the hood has been heavily modified. To be more precise, the engine now used a stroker kit that takes the displacement from the factory 3.8-liter to a 4.1-liter setup.

Nevertheless, the icing on the modding cake comes from a pair of 86mm turbos, which allow the driver to play with 1,342 hp - the turbochargers deliver 40 psi of boost in the setup seen here.

As for the Gallardo battles, the GT-R went up against three Lambos during last fall's Texas Invitational event. We are, of course, talking about twin-turbo V10 bulls whose outputs also play in the four-digit league.

And since you can't quite trust hp numbers when talking about such monstrous outputs, the vehicles were separated by velocity classes. As for this Nissan, the machine competed in the 175 mph (make that 282 km/h if you prefer the metric system) category.

The boosted supercar engaged in half-mile battles using a rolling start, with the trap speed being important here. Check out the piece of footage below to see the GT-R having its way with the Sant'Agata Bolognese beasts.
