Nissan gave birth to the R35 incarnation of the GT-R in 2007 and we can't help but remember how the Japanese automaker tried to keep tuners at bay back then, talking about how any intervention would void the warranty. Well, here we are, more than a decade after the introduction of the car, with a Godzilla setting a new horsepower record.
The Nissan in question has been taken extremely far from its factory setup, with the thing having recently unleashed hell while strapped to a dyno.

Of course, when it comes to such adventures, the game always involves gradually increasing the boost and making sure the rest of the engine (and the car) can keep up with it.

As such, the GT-R managed to get all the way to 3,046 wheel horsepower, but not without its upper pipe detaching itself. Once the part was reinstalled, the R35 was once again put through its paces on the rolling road. This time around, the machine showed 3.008 whp. As for the maximum twist values, these sat at 1,783 and 1,881 Nm, respectively.

In terms of the crankshaft output, this means the beast allows the driver to play with over 3,500 ponies, hence the estimation in the title above.

"What about the... non-rolling road - what happens when this Nissan gets to use all the muscle?" we head you asking.

Massaged by aftermarket developer ETS (Extreme Turbo Systems), this GT-R has also demonstrated that it can put the power down rather well, having delivered a high-six-second quarter mile run.

In fact, this car used to hold the 1/4-mile world record and we're expecting it to grab it back from the GT-R that stole it. So we might just get new reasons to bring the beast back under the spotlights.

As for the shenanigans that take place during half-mile runs, such a machine should be able to go past 250 mph.
