Go behind the scenes with the fastest GT-R in the US
This highly tuned Nissan packs over 2,000 horsepower.
To prove things from the beginning, the clip starts with Palo's GT-R on a dyno, where it makes 2,166 horsepower and 1,302 pound-feet of torque. He later says a different test showed the 2,276 hp – a record for GT-R's in the US. The Nissan also holds a half-mile speed record at 235.6 miles per hour. And it's not just top-end speed – the clip shows the run that made this the quickest GT-R in the quarter mile in the United States.
Naturally, Palo's GT-R has a load of powertrain modifications to make such insane power. The flame-spitting exhausts now route out of the hood, and the turbos get air from openings in the front bumper. Despite the changes, Palo's car is still apparently street legal. To prove it, Palo takes his crazy machine through a drive through. It's worth listening to Palo's description of the GT-R's modifications, but if you're short on time skip to 3:20 to get right to the action on the quarter mile.
