2,100 HP Nissan GT-R Is UAE's Fastest Godzilla

While this might not be obvious to all enthusiasts in other parts of the world, the United Arab Emirates have a strong car culture and the latest example of this comes from the boosted Nissan GT-R in the video below.

This just happens to be the UAE's fastest Godzilla, with the machine having recently been put through its paces at the drag strip. The Nissan managed to pull a 7.3s run, which not only gives it the title above but also brings it extremely close to the current R35 GT-R quarter mile world record.

As it happens, Ekanoo is based in Bahrain, with the team having had its GT-R built by Texan company T1 Race Development. Their Godzilla delivered a 7.265s pass back in February, but willing to hold on to such a record is like trying to build a block of flats over a swamp.

We expect US developer AMS Performance to attempt to take the record back this season. Interestingly, it will all involve a customer car rather than the tuner's development vehicle.

We're talking about AMS' Alpha G GT-R, which might deliver north of 3,000 ponies. So far, the beast has enjoyed its shakedown, so we're expecting more to come soon.

Returning to the GT-R you can see in the clip below, this Nissan packs around 2,100 hp. Now, let's take a bit of time to go through the most important custom goodies that can be found on this extreme incarnation of Nissan's halo car.

While the VR38DETT V6 has kept its 3.8-liter displacement, the engine has been gifted with a pair of Precision 7675 Gen 2 turbos that deliver a massive 60 psi. The transmission comes from Sheptrans, a US developer that focuses on hardware destined for R35 GT-Rs and Mitsubishi Lancer Evos. In fact, you can check out the hardware at work in the clip below.
