There’s no place like Texas for stuffing as much horsepower under your hood as humanly possible. That’s what T1 Race Development has done with Tony Palo’s R35 GT-R, which has just taken the crown of the world’s fastest quarter-mile GT-R drag record.

With an almost endless shopping list of parts, Tony’s GT-R produces around 2165hp and 1302lb ft of torque, launching it to 235mph over a half-mile strip and covering a quarter-mile in a record-breaking 7.3 seconds.

T1 Race Development has fitted a huge amount of custom and aftermarket parts to the GT-R, including stage three cylinder heads, a dry sump conversion kit and custom drag suspension, to name a few.

Unlike most production cars that have been beefed up to north of 1000bhp, Tony’s GT-R is completely road legal.
