Austin Oakes and his band of merry, likely clinically insane fellows teamed up with English Racing and Extreme Turbo Systems to craft the lascivious and salacious LLRGTR, which recently set the GT-R half-mile record at 223.88 mph at Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack 7.
With the aim to be the world’s best drivers’ car on the track, the P1 GTR has high hurdles and high expectations. While the slower P1 has 903 horsepower, the race-reading P1 GTR pumps out 986 horsepower from its 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 engine and electric motor.
We’ve been following T1 Race Development’s 2000-horsepower R35 GT-R for some time now. Purpose built to Godzilla-smash quarter- and half-mile ETs and mile-per-hour records, T1’s GT-R just laid down some massive dyno numbers, which are beautifully highlighted in a new video produced and edited by our own Stuart Leiby of T1.
In 2012, McLaren debuted their latest hypercar, the P1, as a successor to the iconic McLaren F1 from the late 1990s. It was developed with one goal in mind — to be the best driver’s car ever. The P1 received praise from automotive journalists and enthusiasts almost as quickly as its 0-60 time. However, the engineers at McLaren must have sat down one day, enjoying a cup of tea and a biscuit, and said, “How can we make the best driver’s car even better on the track?” After two years since the release of the P1, thousands of man-hours and probably countless cups of English Breakfast Tea, McLaren has released a track-only version of the P1: the McLaren P1 GTR.
On Saturday, Aug. 16, the combined effort of English Racing and Extreme Turbo Systems took their GT-R R35, using the Extreme Turbo Systems’ GT-R turbo kit, to a new level of performance at the Buschur Shootout at Summit Motorsports Park. The first of several seven-second runs came for driver Lucas English of English Racing. With 1,800 horsepower available, pulsating through all four tires, the ETS GT-R R35 rocketed down the strip, leaving a trail of rubber in its wake. The ETS GT-R R35 clocked its first run of 7.806 seconds at 182.45 mph—the quickest of the day. Not only was it a GT-R world record, which was previously held by ETS anyways, but also a personal best for English.
