Alpha Logic AMS Nissan GT-R Details:

  • Alpha Logic added four more cars to the 14 Alpha GT-R's in the eight-second club
  • Alpha Logic located in the Middle East
  • Each car was tuned by AMS' Chris Black
  • Each car pushing over 1,000 whp

It's amazing what AMS Performance has accomplished since founded in 2001. For years its crew has been breaking records around the world. A world record for GT-R on Pump Gas and GT-R Horsepower world record are just a couple of the achievements Alpha's accomplished. However, 2011 was a special year for them and the GT-R community. It was the first year a Nissan GT-R broke into the 8-second range. Since then the company has created 14 more GT-Rs in the eight-second range.

Recently, AMS tuner Chris Black visited Alpha Logic a GT-R Performance garage located in the Middle East. In only a matter of 48 hours Chris and the Alpha Logic crew added four more Nissan GT-Rs into the exclusive eight-second club. In total these four cars managed to collect 19 eight-second time slips.

After two days of wrenching, the first entry into the Alpha Performance Elite program was Ali Al Ali's 2013 Alpha 16. His GT-R ran an 8.43-second quarter mile time. At full boost this GT-R pumps out 1,400+ horsepower to the wheels. The second driver, Mohammed Al Qamzi piloted his 2009 Alpha 16 to an 8.69-second run. Unfortunately, on a second pass the rear axle broke. Mohammed Ahli's 2009 Alpha 14 was the third car to nail an eight-second pass at 8.29-seconds. Last, but not least was the 2009 Alpha 12 owned by Nasser Al Ali ripped an 8.93-second pass. Not only was his car the least powerful at 1,100 horsepower, Nasser's GT-R ran with a full interior - that is luxury. Four eight-second cars, one shop, 48 hours, and the AMS magic touch is all it takes.

AMS Performance sells Alpha 6 packages for the GT-R, which cost roughly $8,000 for 600 total horsepower. Splurging for the Alpha 16 package will easily put you in the 1,000 horsepower plus range.
