VIDEO: THE WORLD'S FASTEST R35 GT-R - FROM TELFORD
With 1,250hp this Shropshire lad's certainly no slouch
Yet this is where 'Hulk', the creation of Severn Valley Motorsport, hails from. And last weekend it topped 218mph at RAF Marham, with Racelogic Vbox data and this onboardvideo to prove it, making it the fastest GT-R in the world (in terms of top speed at least).
To manage this, 'Hulk' has been modified over the past year to the extent that it now produces in excess of 1,250hp. But it's still road legal, and still runs ordinary road tyres.
That conventional rubber and the wet weather might have had something to do with the fact that, as the Severn Valley chaps tell it, the wheels were spinning all the way up to fourth gear. Despite this, the GT-R recorded a 110-130mph time of 1.47 seconds, which beats the time set by a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport by almost half a second over the same increment.
The Severn Valley guys say they're now after another run, this time in the dry. Should be interesting.
Severn Valley Motorsport, we salute you. We even forgive that lairy paint scheme - it is a promotional tool, after all...
