Switzer then removes the engine, transmission, and more before upgrading and re-engineering virtually every aspect of the car’s performance.
As a result the 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine produces now well over 1000 hp. The transmission is also fully rebuilt and strengthened, the suspension is slightly lowered for more neutral handling, while the lightweight “Switzer Signature series” wheels reduce unsprung weight.
Thanks to these changes, the GTR does 0-60 mph in the 2 second range, while the top speed is well in excess of 200 mph (in under a mile!). 1/4 mile comes in a 9-second range, meaning the Ultimate Street Edition GTR can out-accelerate virtually anything on the road.
Fully built Switzer Ultimate Street Edition GTR Nissans are available at select dealers, and carry an $88,990 premium over the GTR’s base sticker price.
