This is the fastest and most powerful GT-R in the world

Say hello to Alpha G, a 2,500bhp Skyline that wants to go very, very fast

It’s all going down in Skyline town. Just a few weeks ago, we showed you a GT-R completing the quarter-mile in 7.44 seconds, hitting 200.39mph in the process. We were impressed. Very impressed.

But EKanoo Racing (who also made this six-second Supra and the world’s fastest GT86) have a new rival.

A man from San Fran called Gideon ‘Gidi’ Chamdi also wants to have his name engraved on the ultimate internet totem pole: the world’s fastest and most powerful Nissan GT-R.

EKanoo Racing’s GT-R has 2,000bhp, Gidi, with the help of AMS Performance, is going for 2,500bhp. Before you snub them, the partnership have quite a strong record for building ballistically fast cars.

Alpha G’s predecessor, Alpha 20, was a well-renowned GT-R in American drag racing circles. It won many events and famously made a 7.94 second run to win the elite TX2K15 drag race.

That was before it was written off by dropping oil and going straight into a concrete barrier. Oopsie. 

The car was a write-off, but thankfully Gidi was OK. Well enough in fact to go and claim the record for the world’s fastest Lamborghini after running a half mile at 234.86 mph in his Underground Racing prepared twin-turbo Gallardo.

But his latest GT-R wants to blow both of these cars out of the water. The target is 2500bhp, making it the most powerful GT-R build ever. That power will be thanks to a VR38 Billet Version 2 engine block (the one in the pics is a dummy) and two monstrous, forward facing Garrett GTX Turbos.

We don’t have any specs yet, but they should be rattled off at its first race at TX2K16 in March. Until then, we’ll just have to get lost in all that crazy pipe work under the bonnet.
