F1 Driver Vitaly Petrov's 1000 hp of GT-R Shoots Flames

The Nissan GT-R is already an angry, snarling speed machine when it leaves the factory in Japan, but everybody knows it has so much more to give. Like a Supra of the modern age, this Japanese supercar is easily tuned, sometime to four-digit horsepower outputs.

Switzer is known for the P700 and P800 packages, but this is something altogether more extreme. The GT-R R1K has just that 1k of power output, as well as 1144 Nm of torque.

Total Car Concept, a Dutch company which specializes in Switzer products has filmed one of their project cars shooting flames. From what we've been able to find out, the car actually belongs to F1 driver Vitaly Petrov. If we're not mistake, he's not racing this season, so it's nice to see he's doing something useful with his time.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
