Switzer Performance’s 1,000-horsepower package for the Nissan GT-R has been priced at $88,990 over the cost of the donor car.
A while back Ohio-based tuner Switzer Performance revealed an aftermarket package it was working on, based on the Nissan GT-R it dubbed the Ultimate Street Edition. Designed to be a daily driver while packing 1,000 horsepower, the "usable and practical" supercar killer is now up for sale. The GT-R's 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 was tweaked to produce 1,000 hp thanks to the addition of Switzer-specific pistons, pins, rings, connecting rods, and a pair of liquid-cooled turbochargers with innovative billet compressor wheels.
A new stainless-steel performance exhaust system, Switzer-specific lowering springs, "nano-carbon" brakes, a strengthened transmission and a fresh set of Switzer Signature Series alloys were also fitted to the Ultimate Street Edition GT-R. As a result the GT-R USE can sprint from 0-62 mph in just over 2 seconds, reach 200 mph in less than a mile and do the quarter mile in nine seconds flat. The price for the Switzer GT-R Ultimate Street Edition conversion is $88,990 over the price of a standard GT-R, which comes in a shade under $100k.
