T1 Race Development's Nissan GT-R Has 2,000-Plus HP, Holds 1/2-Mile Speed Record

Car aficionados who are not up to date with the events taking place on the Nissan GT-R drag racing scene might find it hard to believe that a Nissan GT-R with well over 2,000 hp is not the hottest out there, and yet this is exactly what can be said about the otherwise insane Godzilla tuned by T1 Race Development.

We've talked about the T1 GT-R on previous occasions (in case you missed it, here's an example from last fall) and we've now brought the ludicrous machine back under the spotlight. Being featured in the video below, which comes from Japan's Motorhead Magazine, this Nissan has the power to impress.

While the footage shows us the machine delivering 2,166 hp and 1,302 lb-ft during a dyno run, we are told the beast climbed to as high as 2,276 hp during a different run.

Unfortunately, T1's machine landed right in the middle of a battle between Katar-based EKanoo Racing, whose GT-R currently holds the quarter mile world record with a 7.265 pass, and AMS Performance's latest Godzilla, the Alpha G. The latter has recently had its shakedown, with the tuner explaining it expects the machine to deliver up to 3,000 hp once fully "broken in." More on that topic here.

Perhaps this is why T1 competes in half-mile events, where their GT-R holds the top speed record, thanks to a run that saw the boosted supercar reaching as high as 235.6 mph.

In case you're wondering about the condition of this GT-R as far as street driving goes, the news is brilliant, since this Nissan can be driven on public roads.

However, with the battle mentioned above, we could expect T1 Race Development to take their GT-R event further in the future. Then again, the other two drag racing names we mentioned above should also follow a similar pathway.
