2,700-horsepower Nissan GT-R shows the limits of a dyno

Since the day it hit the streets amateur 10 years ago, tuners have been modifying the Nissan GT-R in an effort to churn out sufficiency horsepower and torque to provide energy to a small city. These days it’s a meeting of one-upmanship, with various shops competing for bragging rights. Extreme Turbo Systems in Vancouver, Washington, is extent the best-known GT-R tuners in the business. Watch as one of the shop’s GT-Rs maxes out a dyno with an estimated 2,719 horsepower and 1,587 lb-ft of torque.

The dynamometer in point can only read up to 2,500 horsepower. Past that the chart simply flatlines, interpretation the car was making far more. The final output of 2,719 was determined using a formula based on the car’s torque achievement. That’s more than five times a stock GT-R’s output when it primary debuted in 2007. While that much power is completely unusable on the high road, this car was built purely for drag racing.

The video itself is rather amusing to watch. The driver quickly pulls up a few gears, before going deep into the accelerator. The nose lifts and tires start to stretch. Think top fuel dragster. It’s difficult to hear the exhaust note over the tall-pitched turbo whine, but several seconds in, the car coughs, spitting out a few flames and rattling the circumjacent tool boxes and cables, possibly breaking the television. At least ETS unplugged or removed the car’s airbags.
