Nissan GT-R Alpha G Could Have 3,000 HP, Aiming for Quarter Mile World Record

Ladies and gentlemen drag racers, be prepared to meet the Nissan GT-R that promises to set a new quarter mile world record. We're talking about AMS Performance's Alpha G.

So far, we've met this extreme incarnation of Godzilla during its build and saw it literally tearing the dyno (room) to pieces. Well, the time has come for the boosted Nissan to have its shakedown.

In fact, Alpha G has enjoyed its first official drag strip stint during the recent TX2K16 event. The Texan 1,320 feet celebration saw the velocity behemoth delivering a 7.85s pass at 183.62 mph while running at 35 psi (out of the over 70 psi it can play with). For the second run, boost was dialed to 39 psi, with the machine pulling a 7.77s run at 184.67 mph.

It's worth mentioning that last time the GT-R 1/4-mile world record traded teams, AMS Performance saw Qatar-based Ekanoo Racing grabbing its title with a 7.265s pass, which may have been slightly updated meanwhile.

Well, the US developer is taking no chances this time around. Its last record had been achieved using its development car, the Alpha Omega that retained the factory location for the turbos, which limited the size of the units.

The Alpha G, a customer car, by the way, houses the turbos in its nose. And with the car currently developing around 2,000 hp at the wheels, the tuner said it expects an extra 1,000 whp.

We should get new clues soon, since the Alpha G is scheduled to take part in the Texas Speed Syndicate's Texas Invitational event that is scheduled for the end of April.

We like to see the Alpha G as a tattoo - we're dealing with a badass element that has appeared after Gidi Chamdi (yes, this is where the "G" in the designation of the car comes from) crashed his previous AMS GT-R. The 2,000 hp Nissan slipped on its spilled oil, hitting the wall on the side of the strip at over 100 mph.
