Switzer’s R1KX Nissan GT-R Red Katana runs the quarter-mile in 8.97 seconds

Switzer Performance, out of Oberlin, Ohio, has tuned up the GT-R to cross the quarter-mile finish line in impressive time.

Dubbed the “Red Katana” by the model’s owner, this is the first R1KX GT-R’s that Switzer rolled out of its garage that has it the track. At over 163mph, the Red Katana ran the quarter mile in just 8.97 seconds at the Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.

Apart from the extensive performance mods required to pump out better then 1,500hp, the model comes with a premium sound system, and an interior full of Alcantara, leather and carbon fiber.

Nice work, Switzer, very nice.
