Got the need for speed? Well the Texas Mile is ready to satisfy. The Chase Field Industrial Complex in Beeville, Texas, is home to the ultimate celebration of speed where AMS Performance recently recaptured the fastest GT-R crown. AMS set the record at 217 mph in 2011, but that record was recently broken when “The Hulk” GT-R, built and maintained by Albins Gear’s UK dealer, Severn Valley Motorsport, laid down a record run of 218.03 mph in the UK.

The AMS Alpha Omega GT-R grabbed the record back in an early shakedown run posting 221 mph. But AMS turned up the wick later in the event, upping the boost to 29.5 psi and bumping power to around 1,250. In this trim the AMS Alpha Omega GT-R and project technician and driver Ivan Phipps dropped an astounding 233.1 mph on the competition.

Things got scary when the Nissan encountered a slight dip in the pavement about the time the chute deployed. This combination of forces unloaded the Nissan’s suspension resulting in a long, underwear-soiling sideways skid. Check the video out at AMSPerformance.com.

AMS reports the GT-R has 1,500hp to 1,600hp potential, and Ivan and crew plan to tap into all of it, add a rear wing, and have ShepTrans swap to a taller final drive gear. The next Texas Mile is slated for October 26-28, and 240 mph may be in the cards.
