Previously, the world record for the fastest 1/4 mile by a GT-R was held by AMS’ Alpha Omega GT-R for its time of 7.70 seconds at 186 mph. Now, an Extreme Turbo Systems GT-R has beaten this record.

Clocking in a just 7.49 seconds at 189 mph, this GT-R crushed the previous 1/4 mile world record. The record breaking run took place during the TX2K15 event in Houston, Texas at the Royal Purple Raceway.

In order to get this massive amount of power, the car has a huge number of modifications, including an essentially rebuilt engine.
