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.

Nissan’s frontrunner, the GT-R, is now offered in Japan and Europe for 2013. Recognized as the US Model Year in 2014, the car is known for its exceptional performance, enhanced response duration, sharper handling and greater stability.

At the peak of the Nissan lineup, the 2013 GT-R is now improved with the 550PS 3.8L V6 twin-turbocharged engine that generates better responses from the upper and mid rev ranges. Changes were also implemented for the springs, front anti-roll bar, and dampers. The outcome is improved traction, enhanced stability with high speeds, a more refined driver experience, and a more comfortable ride.

Engine

The engine of the 2013 Nissan GT-R has an enhanced high-end acceleration and improved mid-range engine response. It has been integrated with high-output injectors that are effective in controlling precisely the fuel injection. The specially designed opening to the relief valve has also been installed to the turbocharger bypass. These features minimize the fast downfall of the forced injection pressure, which helps in sustaining high-speed acceleration.

In high-performance driving, oil pressure is stabilized more efficiently and the rotational friction inside the oil pan is decreased. This is achieved by adding a new and improved baffle plate to the structure of the oil pan.
