As we covered April 14, their Alpha 20 completed a quarter mile in just 7.94 seconds at 190 mph during TX2K15, making it one of the fastest street cars in the world. They must have made a few significant modifications in the meantime, because they were able to crush their previous record at a tuning session held at Milan Dragway back on the first of July. In a YouTube video uploaded by That Racing Channel July 9, you can watch the consistent AWD launches and progressively faster times with each pass, dropping to 7.48 seconds at 192.97 mph – the new quarter mile record for a GT-R.
Without the parachute and the roll cage, you would be hard pressed to believe this car is capable of reaching 193 mph in only 1,320 feet, but somehow they are able to produce all this with just 4.0-liters of displacement. Their previous attempts had reached the limits of the factory cast aluminum 3.8-liter engine block, so they machined a new 4.0-liter from a solid billet.
This level of innovation requires dedication and the results are in the time slips. Will we see a GT-R hit a 6.99 second quarter mile? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
