It’s amusing how Nissan didn’t want people to tune the GT-R and now Godzilla is one of the most tweaked cars on Earth. We know have a new example of how much aftermarket potential the GT-R has. This comes in the form of a clip that shows a heavily modified example pull out two records over a 1-mile (1.6 km) run.
We are talking about the GT-R AMS Alpha 12+, a 1,700 bhp machine that recently tore the Russian tarmac apart. The creation managed to record two record for the GT-R species, completing the 1-mile run in 22.538 seconds and hitting a speed of 237.5 mph (382.16 km/h).

While the 2.99s time for the 0 to 62 mph sprint shows how difficult it is to put all that power down, even with AWD, the rest of the acceleration times are incredible. We are talking about 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 6.5 seconds and 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) in 12.37 seconds.

If you want to see what these numbers mean in the real world, you can hit the “play” button below and watch how the GT-R makes an 1,100 bhp Porsche 911 Turbo look like a toy.
