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.
Airstrip attack racing has exploded in popularity in recent years, helping it become one of the most popular modern motorsports. Combining a stationary start with the crazy speeds of a half-mile drag race, airstrip attack racing pushes both man and machine to the very edge.
Specs: 784 horsepower. 737 pound-feet of torque. Twin-turbo V-6. Dual-clutch, 8-speed transmission. These are just a few of the tantalizing tidbits circulating about the next-generation GT-R. And while they're just educated guesses gleaned from industry sources at this point, all signs point to a major Godzilla upgrade. And get this: the R36 might even have a completely revolutionary hybrid powertrain.
ARMYTRIX recently shared a video that's about as far away from those digital baby steps as possible. (As an aside, their website is insanely good: the intro vid is of a stanced-out Aventador spitting fire through its valvetronic exhaust, then screaming off toward SEMA. I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me.)
AMS Performance's street-legal Alpha Omega GT-R just pulled off one of the most impressive feats in automotive history: running the quarter-mile in a world-record 7.70 ET, and winning a half-mile event with a stunning 201-mph trap speed.
