Porsche 918 Spyder VS. 1,325 HP Nissan GT-R Drag Race Proves a Funny Point

When an 887 HP Porsche 918 Spyder drag races an 1,325 HP Nissan GT-R, many things can happen. Nevertheless, before you watch the race footage below, we want to set a few things straight.

You know that already-stereotypical “at the end of the day” situation? Well, it fully applies here. Sure, you can easily do the maths and come to the conclusion the soupped-up GT-R is the winner.

Nevertheless, a 918 Spyder is what it is and while you can easily turn Nissan’s supercar into a faster drag race machine, things will always stop there.

Despite the GT-R driver returning to the starting point with a victory hand out the window, the equation here is no more complicated than what we described above.

Don’t get us wrong though, we have nothing against the GT-R. The sheer fact that Nissan gave the world a car that ended up challenging the biggest name on the board after going through a set of skilled hands.

In fact, the GT-R is now officially a Japanese citizen. Well, not the Nissan, but the original Godzilla whose nickname it has borrowed. While the fictional monster received this title, along with being name Tokyo’s tourism ambassador last year, the paperwork was completed last week.

These days, GT-Rs have passed the 2,000 HP mark and we’re wondering what such an example could do against a hypercar belonging to the holy hybrid trinity - the point mentioned above is not just about a race against the 918, any of the trhee would work just as well.
