Its difficult to put 900 horses down to the wheels. But such races show and help analyse where these highly modded cars need improvement.

Nissan Gt-R is a big improvement over the Skyline GT-R 34 (minus the looks and the conventional stick tranny though the semi auto tranny is great itself) and surely puts it in the big league.

It would be interesting to see if the slightly modded GTR with the mentioned 570 horses manage to out run a stock Gallardo and F430.

What with the DRI clamp down many bikes and some cars maybe "hidding". Before anyone starts jumping I am saying some cars you never though what with the scams coming out of Hyderabad even the socalled legit imports may have cut corners.

I agree that putting 900 horses on the tarmac is quite tough during the race start, but what i saw was astonishing as the GTR started slow and the supra lept ahead and only later the GTR overtook after both engaged 3rd gear, where neither tyres were spinning. Can a 900hp supra have trouble with traction even in 3rd gear ?? was it turbo lag ??

That is actually a Mercedes MB 140 14-seater van. It might have been converted into an 8-seater later. There is also a shorter 10-seater version called the MB 100 and these were imported into India between 1998 and 2001, from Mercedes Benz Korea.
