America Vs Bahrain Godzilla Speed War Continues: New Nissan GT-R Quarter Mile World Record Set

The quest to find the quickest Nissan GT-R continues as American and Bahrain battle it out on the drag strip.

Written By:

The Nissan GT-R has always been an insane car with its sub 3.0-second sprint to 100km/h. For tuners though that 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 is a monster that can be tuned to deliver crazy times on the drag strip.

Recently, the tuned GT-R community has been enjoying a war between two tuning houses in the United States and Bahrain that are cranking up the power in the GT-Rs hurtling down the drag strip.

Bahrain's Ekanoo Racing grabbed the GT-R quarter mile world record earlier this week by clocking an insane time of 7.16 seconds crossing the line at 336.35km/h (209m/h).

The Bahraini team also set the world record for a 911 turbo on the same day.

American tuning house AMS Performance decided to bring out its biggest weapon in the form a 3,000+ horsepower Alpha GT-R which swiped the record from Ekanoo by posting a time of 7.14 seconds with a trap speed of 341.18km/h (212m/h).

What makes the Alpha GT-R that took the record even more special is the fact that it is a customer's car.

The customer, Gidi, used to race a 2,000 horsepower Alpha GT-R before it spilled oil, slipped and crashed into a wall at over 160km/h during a drag race last year.


AMS Performance are currently celebrating their new record but the fact that Ekanoo Racing have stated that their setup still "has untapped potential" means this war over the fastest Godzilla is far from over.
