AMS Nissan GT-R Alpha 9

Friday, December 31st, 2010:

The tuners from AMS Performance have put together the ultimate package so far for the Nissan GT-R called the Alpha 9. Coming close to many of the Bugatti Veyron’s world records, the new GT-R kit catapults the stock 530 horsepower to an amazing 800 crank hp with a few major upgrades. These include new billet wheel ball bearing turbos, new turbo inlet pipes, a larger front mount intercooler, 90 mm exhaust system, custom calibrated MAF sensors, and new ECU tuning to keep everything running smooth. The Nissan GT-R is now able to run the 1/4 mile in 9.95 seconds seconds at 141 mph, which set a new pump gas R35 GTR quarter mile record. Pricing for this package starts at $21,999 USD, however we are sure they will continue to improve it to eventually push close to 1,000 horsepower, and beat all the current Bugatti records at a fraction of the cost.

2012 Nissan GT-R Acceleration Time

Last weekend I was driving on the highway and got my first chance to witness a Nissan GT-R in action. The guy driving the godzilla Nissan flew by my truck going atleast 120+ mph and the only way I could tell it was the new GT-R was from the taillights since it was dark outside. The way it shook the ground and rattled my truck as it zoomed by makes me want to take out a loan for one tomorrow, and these official track numbers from Nissan sound promising. At the Sendai Hi-land Race Way, the 2012 Nissan GTR 0-100 km/h acceleration time was tested, and did not disappoint. It wasn’t able to break the 3 second mark, however was spot on 3.0 seconds. Considering this was a factory standard edition shows the true potential of these AWD cars.

Switzer 900hp Ethanol Nissan GT-R P900

Switzer 900hp Ethanol Nissan GT-R P900

The Ohio based tuning company Switzer Performance has topped their previous records with the Nissan GT-R P900. This modified Nissan GT-R now produces 900hp with an all new transmission to handle the power. Switzer previously released the Nissan GT-R P700 package that boasted around 800 horses, with 700 crank horsepower, but that wasn’t enough. Tim Switzer started off by making this custom Nissan run on E85 ethanol, but to handle these numbers, a new transmission was needed. Transmission failure was the biggest concern of this project, so the tuners hired Dodson Motorsports in New Zealand to develop the stronger transmission. After several months of development between Switzer and Dodson, they received a product that would allow them to push more than 800hp.

Cobb Tuning Nissan GT-R E85

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010:


Going green, or eco friendly with cars isn’t all that bad with your working with Cobb Tuning, who have modified this Nissan GT-R to run on E85 ethanol gas. Ethanol, or some would say corn oil, is a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline which was originally developed as a bio-fuel or flex fuel. However, E85 has become an alternative fuel choice for car tuning enthusiasts seeking large performance gains from a relatively inexpensive modification. This new ethanol E85 mix carries a 105 octane rating, and we all know what that means, more octane more power. Cobb Tuning has done just that with this new Nissan GT-R, to see how much extra power they could pull on the dyno.

Nissan GT-R Chrome, White, and Matte Black Car Wraps

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009:


Here we have an extreme tuning enthusiast who took his Nissan GT-R and wrapped it matte white at first, then decided to wrap it in chrome! It’s a little ridiculous in my opinion and definitely flashy, but the matte white looks good with the black wheels. It’s amazing what some people will pay to customize their car, the matte white car wrap alone costs $2,640. The chrome was even more expensive and took almost two weeks to complete the Nissan GT-R. The guy who wrapped his in chrome has a friend who also wrapped his GT-R in the common matte black which always looks good.

Avus Performance Nissan GT-R Black Edition

Thursday, September 24th, 2009:


Berlin car tuning company Avus Performance has unveiled a line of car styling and performance parts for the all new Nissan GT-R. Beginning with the base model Nissan GT-R, Avus transformed it into their “Black Edition” by wrapping the car in matte black body vinyl adhesive foil. The foil is priced at 2,499 euro and isn’t a bad consideration for any vehicle since it adds an extra layer of protection. The stealth look was accomplished by painting the 20 inch wheels black which are priced at 999 euro, and wheel spacers are available for an extra 349 euro. A coilover suspension was also installed to lower the vehicle, and Avus Performance offers the set up for 1,299 euro.
