Today we bring you the Switzer Performance Nissan R1KX GT-R Red Katana, it was one of the first R1KX GTRs modified by Switzer to reach the drag strip.
The real highlight about the 2012 Nissan R1KX GT-R Red Katana is the Switzer’s R1KX engine set-up that takes the mighty Red Katana’s performance capabilities into the reality of the unfathomable. with that we definately can say all 1,500 horsepower’s worth of it. to prove the point to you, this red rocket recently hit Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio last weekend and blazed the strip with a quarter-mile time of just 8.97 seconds at a speed of over 163 miles per hour.
The fully-customized GT-R has been equipped with a scary performance and a plush exterior and interior set-up with the latter including high-quality carbon fiber and Alcantara. In addition, the car also features a high-end audio system that will shake the roads. these extra equipment has made the car 300 lbs (136 kg) heavier in comparison to the standard GT-R.
What we would like to say is that SWITZER has definately, tuned this 2012 Nissan R1KX GT-R “Red Katana” with some Magical potion!
