Nissan GT-R NISMO at Denver Auto Show

Nissan GT-R vs Bugatti Veyron drag race [video]

A video has surfaced of a Nissan GT-R and a Bugatti Veyron drag racing at an airport. It includes cockpit shots and is beyond cool. You'll be amazed at the results.

The two-minute video below shows a drag race between a Nissan GT-R and a Bugatti Veyron. Both cars have seen extensive modifications. The video was shot at the Spring Event at Weeze Airport in Germany and results in a very close finish that you have to see.

These incredible supercars are not stock, of course. The Nissan GT-R has received a Switzer P800 package, reinforced gearbox, and Akrapovic exhaust system. It was a Total Car Concept project and outputs at least 800 horsepower (no dyno tests confirmed).

The Bugatti is a Masonry tuner with a modified exhaust and other updates not specified. It has not been tested on a dyno for output numbers, but it handily beat a stock Veyron in a race filmed just before this one on the same drag strip (click here to view that).

Im kind of surprised that the GT-R didnt beat the Bugatti worse than that, considering that the Veyron weighs 14,281 pounds.
Tuning. The Veyron has a massive amount of torque output and this one was modified and easily trounced a stock Veyron in an earlier race, so it's probably like a jet-propelled dragster.
