Nissan GT-R wins “King of the Streets”

October 10, 2014 / by / 0 Comment

Lethal performance from Nissan GT-R helped the model to flog the Lamborghinis and win the King of the Streets competition at Texas Invitational. There were Vipers, Nissan GT-Rs and the highest-power Lamborghinis participating in the competition. These 42 street-legal race cars only raised the benchmark of the racing competition. Alpha Omega GT-R, which was built and driven by Ivan Phipps, won the competition.  The 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 created 2,000 hp and had enough power to set a new 1/4-mile. GT-R drove at 7.7 seconds/186 mph.

It is simple to build a street-legal race car, and all one needs to do is add some parts to boost the horsepower. However, making those machines reach 2,000 hp in reality requires a much higher engineering skill and years of dedication. We get to see some of those prize machines at racing events like the Texas Invitational, fighting for the top prize and esteem.
