Yesterday, we showed you a video of a modified Nissan GT-R making a world-record run. Built by Bahrain’s EKanoo Racing, it did the quarter mile in a scant 7.168 seconds at an incredible 209 mph. Compared to a stock Nissan GT-R Nismo, the EKanoo GT-R’s quarter-mile time was almost a full four seconds quicker.
As hard as that kind of acceleration is to comprehend, though, the EKanoo Racing car is no longer the quickest GT-R in the world. That title now belongs to AMS Performance’s “Alpha-G” GT-R. In the video below, you can watch it lay down a 7.14-second quarter mile at 212 mph, making it both quicker and faster than the EKanoo Racing GT-R.
But since we know EKanoo is working to extract even more performance out of its own car, we have to wonder how long this record will stand. In a few days, will we see a video of that car doing a 7.12? And which team will be the first to break into the sixes?
Whatever the result, we all benefit from fierce competition.
