The car is run by Dmitry Kapustin of SMP Racing. The team, called Russian Bears, is comprised of around 40 drivers who activate in a wide variety of championships, from local racing such as the Russian Drag Racing Championship seen here to the WTCC or FIA WEC (obviously also including Le Mans).
Let’s put things into perspective with an R35 comparisonSure, getting an R32 into the 7s range is impressive enough on its own, but there’s more to the run than that. For one thing, the world’s fastest R35 GT-R, which comes from the US, also plays in the 7s range. We are talking about AMS Performance’s Alpha Omega GT-R. This is a 2,000+ HP monster that recently reclaimed its R35 1/4-mile world record with the help of a 7.485s pass.
And while we’re at it, we want to remind you what happens when one of these 2,000 HP Godzillas gets out of control. A recent customer car crash has taught us about the consequences of such an unfortunate event. In fact, we are talking about the fastest customer R35 in the world. The racecar is now totalled, but the tech bits that have remained untouched by the crash will find their way into another GT-R.
