Up until mid-April, the AMS Performance Alpha Omega Nissan GT-R was the quickest GT-R in the world. After all, it is the first GT-R to have set a 9 second, 8 second and 7 second quarter mile. In April, a GT-R from ETS clocked a new record 7.81 second quarter mile time. As we suspected however, AMS Performance didn’t let that record stand for long and recently set a new world record sprint in the Alpha Omega GT-R.
The crew headed to Royal Purpose Raceway where the GT-R managed to set a truly phenomenal time of just 7.70 seconds at 300 km/h! In the record run, the car accelerated to 96 km/h (60 mph) in a mere 1.53 seconds, hit 160 km/h in 2.79 seconds and 300 km/h in just 7.56 seconds!
Incredibly, the AMS Performance crew attempted to beat this time after tuning the Omega to deliver even more power. Due to declining track conditions however, no better time was achieved.
