Watch a Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Race a Tuned Nissan GT-R
As we witnessed firsthand not too long ago when we tested a Bugatti Veyron, that car is frighteningly fast to say the least. While the Veyron was an undisputed heavyweight when it first hit the streets a decade ago, many others have caught up, and even a car that may not have out-gunned it in stock form has a fighting change when backed by the right tuners. 1,000-plus horsepower cars are now semi-routine in the world of aftermarket tuning. You have multiple shops across the United States and around the world that churn out staggeringly fast machines. One of those shops just happens to be our old friends AMS Performance.

In their mad scientist laboratory, the engineers are able to tune these cars to frankly absurd numbers, and one of those cars just went head-to-head against a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
When we visited AMS Performance a few months ago, we got to see a few of the tuned GT-R’s the shop is known for, including the Alpha Omega GT-R that produces over 2,000 horsepower.

This GT-R however, is Omega’s little brother, the Alpha 12. That designation of Alpha 12 means this GT-R is putting down around 1,200 horsepower, lining up perfectly with the Bugatti’s 1,200 horsepower.
This Alpha GT-R is a bit down on torque, 885 lb-ft to the Bugatti’s 1,100 lb-ft, but the GT-R weighs almost 400 lbs less. So the question becomes, who’s going to win? Let’s watch and find out.
