[VIDEO] Nissan GT-R with 1600HP by AMS Performance image

The North American aftermarket specialists at AMS Performance have recently presented their latest creation, a 1600 horsepower Nissan GT-R.

The Nissan GT-R has quickly become an iconic car and better than its predecessor, the Skyline, proving that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to enjoy the performance of a real sports car, but the Japanese vehicle was recently taken to a whole new level by AMS Performance, who managed to “squeeze” 1,600 horsepower out of the model and a peak torque of 1,562 Nm. Thanks to the Alpha Omega package, the Nissan GT-R can finish the quarter mile in just 8,6263 seconds, a new world record for production vehicles, according to AMS Performance. At the end of the 402 meters, the Nissan GT-R had achieved a top speed of 279,7 km/h.

As a reminder, the standard Nissan GT-R, in the 2013 model year, is powered by the 3.8 liter twin turbo V6 engine, which is developing a total output of 545 horsepower and 627 Nm of torque (463 lb-ft), being sold for 96,820 USD. There is no official word yet on the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R’s price or engine yet, but one thing is for sure: it’s not cheap! You can watch the official video with the 1600HP beast below. Enjoy!
