AMS Alpha 10 GT-R runs 9.1 @ 163 MPH! Worlds Quickest and Fastest R35 GT-R!

Recommended Posts

Looks nuts with Bugatti Veyron rivaling performance at a fraction of the cost!

 

DO WANT!!

 

AMS and the Alpha 10 GT-R made its return to the drag strip a few weeks ago in an attempt to improve upon its previous ¼ mile record of 9.33@153mph. Since that record run, it was uncertain whether there would be another chance to run again this year due to the weather getting colder in the Midwest. However, after making a few changes to the Alpha 10 setup, the temperature warmed up enough and the decision was made to head back to the drag strip to see what more the Alpha 10 GT-R could muster up.

 

The Alpha 10 finished tuning the day prior and was up another 80 wheel horsepower since its last run. The GT-R was now laying down 980 horsepower and 871 ft/lbs torque to the wheels (or an estimated 1165 engine horsepower – 1035 ft/lbs engine torque) with no additional turbo lag over stock! Weather was still in the 50’s and traction was still a plaguing issue, but AMS special projects technician, Ivan Phipps, took to the wheel this time and was able to pull through that day with a best run of 9.19@163mph!

 

After a slight delay due to preparation for the Texas Mile and SEMA, we have the video of the record-setting AMS Alpha 10 GT-R run. Again, the quickest and fastest R35 GT-R in the ¼ Mile!

Also it is fast, and a good time, but i would have thought faster?

Why the comparisons to a Bugatti Veyron? The Veyron is a near two-tonne Grand Tourer not geared for out and out acceleration.

gtr at 1730kgs and the veyron at 1888kgs there really isnt that much different,

 

altho with the carbon gear and lighter and smaller wheels and tires im thinking the AMS gtr would be down around 1680-1700kgs..

 

but fark me that gtr looks wild with no rear wing..
