A monstrous Nissan GT-R tuned by ETS has set a new world record in the quarter mile sprint.

During the TX2k15 event, the GT-R by ETS (Extreme Turbo Systems) managed to run the 1/4 mile distance in 7.49 seconds at 304.3 km/h (189 mph). The previous record belonged to the AMS Alpha Omega - 7.7 seconds at 186 mph (300km/h) on the finish line.
