May 20, 2009 Comments off


Well known Texas based Toyota Supra shop MVP Motorsports have been preparing their own Nissan GT-R for some time now while also preparing to launch their new online store

And, as they say, what better way to do it than to set a new record R35 GT-R quarter mile time? Hitting up the brand new Dallas Raceway dragstrip they managed a 10.31 second ET @ 131 mph beating the previous world GT-R record by almost two tenths.

Of course this GT-R is no factory standard car and modifications include upgraded turbos, intercoolers, intakes, turbo outlet pipes, and y-pipe by ARD Motorsports. The ECU is a MVP tuned Cobb AccessPORT. Notice also that nitrous is left conspicuously OFF the modifications list and indeed was not used at the drags.

Thanks to Dusty@MVP for the heads up.
