Watch a 2,700-hp Nissan GT-R Take a Dyno to the Limit

Heavily modified Godzilla puts down off-the-charts power

Nissan started a war with the R35 GT-R by creating a relatively affordable sports car capable of humiliating pricey exotics. The GT-R's dominance has ebbed as its age has advanced, however, but that's where the aftermarket comes in.

From the factory, the Nissan GT-R comes with anywhere from 480 hp to 600 ponies depending on model year and trim. But tuning shop Extreme Turbo Systems wasn't satisfied with giving the GT-R just a small bump in horsepower. No, the operation stayed true to its name and boosted this GT-R's output to 2,719 hp and 1,587 lb-ft of torque. The former number exceeds output of some locomotives and was calculated mathematically using the torque figure, as the dyno maxed out at 2,500 hp. In the video below, you'll see one of ETS' engineers gradually feed more power as the car spools up. Then it gets very loud as the engineer stomps on the throttle, possibly spinning the wheels on the dyno. What's really interesting, though, is that as the engineer feeds in more throttle, you can see the front tire deform from the immense power. I guess that's to be expected from a car that makes almost twice the power of the Bugatti Chiron.

Unlike the Chiron, however, this GT-R seems to be built for one thing and one thing alone: dominance at the drag strip. Over the years, ETS and rival shop AMS Performance have routinely one-upped each other in the quest for the fastest GT-R. This car is likely meant to knock AMS Performance's Alpha Omega GT-R off its throne, and we can't wait to see what it can do.
