Video: New world’s quickest Nissan GT-R runs 7.81 seconds

The record for the quickest Nissan GT-R in the world has just been reset by the Extreme Turbo Systems GT-R, running a quarter mile in an astonishing 7.81 seconds.

Extreme Turbo Systems Nissan GT-R record run

It’s unknown how much power the machine is producing, however, it is powerful enough to fend off the previous record-holder; the AMS Alpha Omega GT-R which has run a 7.984-second pass.

Interestingly, the Extreme Turbo GT-R did the run in 7.81 seconds at 294.5km/h whereas the AMS car reached 299.33km/h during its run.

As you can see the car looks relatively standard on the outside, apart from the parachute setup at the back, obviously. But it has no major body modifications and even the interior is surprisingly intact, with rear seats and a full dash.
