Tuned Nissan GT-R Drag Races Porsche 918 Spyder

By now, we're pretty sure that four-year-olds have included Nissan GT-R drag races into their daily kindergarten chats. With the R35 GT-R being almost ready to retire, we've enjoyed so many straight line fights that saw tuned examples of Godzilla taking on much more extreme machines that we lost count.

Well, here we are, giving you yet another one of these battles. Don't worry, it's all justified, since the Nissan we have here is quite ambitious, throwing itself at a Porsche 918 Spyder.

The Nissan has gone down the customization route, with its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 now allowing the driver to play with 700 hp. As for the German hypercar, this comes with the Weissach package.

We won't trow spoilers at you by revealing what goes on behind the play button below, but we can mention the fact that, regardless of the result, such a battle brings the kind of aural spectacle you'll want to enjoy.

Oh, and in case this 918 Spyder seems familiar, it's probably because we've talked about the car being raced, or at least hooned, on previous occasions.

Wearing Monaco plates, the gasoline-electric Porsche has an owner who enjoys dipping into the potential of his machine with an audience. Fortunately, this isn't one of those car collectors who buy engineering masterpieces and keep them locked inside garages with pretty lights.

Instead, when he's not drag racing other high-octane contraptions, this driver takes pleasure in showing the world what Porsche 918 donuts look like (you can see more on this topic here).

And, unlike a few 918 drivers who fail to live up to the name of the cars they handle, this guy seems to know what he's doing. Which means we might just see the Weissach beast again in the future. Until we get to see if that happens, we're inviting you to hit the "play" button below.
