What we have here is nothing less than the quickest stock chassis Nissan GT-R on the planet, which clocked a quarter mile time of 7.168sec and 209.05 miles per hour (336.44 kilometers per hour) at a recent round of the Bahrain Drag Racing Championship.

That’s a low 7th second pass in a car that has merely been modified, not built from the ground up. And could probably have been driven home afterwards with a set of treaded tires. It’s a pretty astonishing achievement. The GT-R is run by Bahraini outfit EKanoo Racing, whose stable of Japanese and German machines could give any American drag racing team a run for its money. Their stock chassis Toyota Supra is the fastest in the world, turning in a time of 6.57sec. And their “Pro Import” Toyota GT86 funny car can run a 5.85 quarter on a 4 cylinder engine.

With an engine built by drag racing specialist Magnus Motorsports, and a chassis put together by Ledford Josh of Late Model Racing, EKanoo’s GT-R features a laundry list of the best racing components. We can only guess how much power the twin-turbo V6 engine produces, but it must be pushing 2,000 hp (1,491 kilowatts). If not more. According to EKanoo there is more to come from the GT-R - this was actually its first run after a comprehensive rebuild. Once it’s fully dialed in it should easily clock a six second pass. There might be some work to do on the chassis, too, as this pass looks like it was a pretty wild ride. Or it could simply be that the driver struggled to come to terms with the power first time out.
