Tuned Nissan GT-Rs Take on Bugatti Veyron

May 21, 2010 Comments off


Put two Switzer P800 tuned GT-Rs into the mix with a megadollar hypercar and this may very well be the result. If you ever needed reinforcement that a 1000hp quad turbo 16 cylinder powered car is potent then this is highly recommended viewing.

Switzer’s Animal 800 Horsepower Streetable Trackday Star

April 10, 2010 Comments off

Switzer Performance Innovation have put the finishing touches on their most recent Switzer P800 based Nissan GT-R build up. The goal of this build was one that will resonate with many an R35 owner in that, while big things will be expected on the circuit, a comfortable drive to and from is a must.

To get there the decision was made to lift horsepower, lower weight and improve handling, all sensible checkboxes to tick to wind up with a great drive but there’s also a lot of pitfalls to look out for along the way.

Fortunately the guys at Switzer have the knowledge and experience to do it right the first time and chose great components to do it with. Some of the highlights of which are the AP Racing carbon rotors which save loads of unsprung rotating mass at each corner, in-house tuned JRZ suspension and a Aeromotions active rear wing.

Word is in that Russan, Switzer P800 tuned, Nissan GT-R owner Oleg, has broken the world record for quarter mile ET for a Nissan R35 GT-R when he ran 10.193 yesterday.

We’re told that, in addition to the Switzer P800 package, the car was running 19″ Dymag lightweight carbon fibre wheels fitted with 315/30R19 Hoosier R6 tires. The car was also running VP Racing MS109 race gas. Even with the super sticky Hoosiers the car constantly spun the tires a good way down the strip.

It’s early days yet but according to our source, a video is inbound soon.

Thanks to JURY from Dragtimes.info for the tip.

Switzer Performance Debut R850 Tuning Package for Nissan GT-R

The Switzer Performance P800 is a potent vehicle already but what happens when you take a potent 800hp on pump gas monster and tune it for some high octane race gas? A fire breathing Godzilla incarnate basically.

Switzer have now shipped their first R850 package equipped Nissan GT-R (to Russia!). The package makes about 800hp at the engine (based on 15% drivetrain loss) and 820 lb/ft of torque.

The package comes with tunes for race and pump gas so you’ll actually find the car remains eminently streetable. It also features a large dual core radiator with revised thermostat, revised “MONSTER” intercoolers and the Switzer cooling package. The package comes in at the $20,990 mark all said and done.

Jalopnik: Switzer’s P800 – 707 awhp Nissan GT-R Driven

It’s not everyday that a tuner the caliber of Switzer Performance makes an invitation to press to come try out their latest and greatest behemoth but that’s just what they did. On the dyno this beast reels off a solid 707 awhp (527kw) and 603 lb/ft (817 Nm) of torque which is good enough for a 3.35 0-60mph without resorting to the GT-R’s fabled launch control.

Jalopnik were the first to write up their experiences with the P800 on a miserable looking day on a snowy wet track. Good things to be said all round and well written to boot.

Check it out at the link below, video and tonnes more photos in their gallery over on Jalopnik…
