A monstrous Nissan GT-R with mind-boggling power of 2,438 horsepower (1,793 kilowatts) has recorded a quarter-mile run in 7.3 seconds.

T1 Race Development says the goal from the beginning of the development process was to create a car to set new records. And they achieved this by registering a record 7.38-second run on the quarter-mile distance at 195 miles per hour (314 kilometers per hour). This result is around 0.1 seconds faster than the previous record that belongs to Alpha Omega GT-R.
