Switzer Ultimate Street Edition GTR or the 1,000 hp Nissan GT-R

Article by Christian A., on January 2, 2013

The first tuning package to be released by Switzer Performance after its expansion and move from a 4500 sq. ft. garage to a 105,000 sq. ft. complex earlier this year is Switzer’s Ultimate Street Edition (USE) GTR based on the Nissan GT-R. The Ohio-based tuning company took a 545 hp R35 GTR sportscar from Nissan and took out its engine, transmission, and other items.

It then upgraded and re-engineered essentially each aspect of its performance. The 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine’s output has been almost doubled to more than 1000 hp.

The transmission has been totally rebuilt and reinforced and its suspension is a bit lowered to achieve a more neutral handling. Meanwhile, the lightweight “Switzer Signature series” wheels lessen the unsprung weight. The tuner emphasized that the car rides nicer compared to the stock vehicle.

As a result, the GTR gets an excellent performance that’s 0-60 times in the 2 second range. It also has achieved a top speed that surpasses 200 mph.

It can be driven 1/4 mile in 9 seconds, which means that the Ultimate Street Edition GTR can out-accelerate all other vehicles on the road. It claims further that Switzer’s Ultimate Street Edition (USE) GTR is the best thing in the world.

This model is offered at select dealerships. It is priced $88,990 higher than the GTR’s base sticker price. It gets custom features such as the custom paint scheme and “j-hook” brake rotors. What buyers get for this price is a supercar that can run down any MotoGP bike or Formula 1 racecar. It also comes with a 2-year warranty from Switzer.
