The Alpha Omega prepares for a drag race at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wisconsin

The Nissan R 35 GTR, dubbed the Alpha Omega, is a 2000 horse power super car with an unsurpassable racing history.

The team at AMP Performance built the speed machine in 2012 - and raced it just four weeks after it was completed.

Eric Gaudi, 37, general manager at AMS said: “The car quite literally takes your breath away.

“Omega is actually the quickest and fastest GTR in the quarter mile, posting a best time of 7.70 seconds, best speed of 190mph.

“Alpha Omega also holds the record in the standing half mile at 124.9mph.”

AMS Performance has used the Alpha Omega as a guinea pig for other products and parts they create in shop.

Eric said: “Our customers have benefitted from the packages greatly and some have gotten close to the times and performance numbers that Omega has put down.

“However as it sits today, Omega is still the top of the food chain.”

The whole car was built in shop in Chicago, Illinois.

Eric said: “The specification list for the Omega is quite long but at it’s core is a 4.0 litre Omega spec, V6 motor, coupled with our C and C race heads.

“That’s wrapped in a very large Alpha 20 turbo system built in house.

“The driver’s line is taken care of by Sheptrans with help from and Dodson and Exedy.

“What that results in is pretty staggering numbers - a quarter of mile at 7.70 seconds, best trap speed of 190mph, and zero to sixty in 1.5 seconds."

And the car is completely street legal, despite its incredible performance capabilities.
Eric said: “The Alpha Omega is by no means a gutted race car.

“It has full interior, power windows, all the accessories you would associate with a street car.

“We take it out on the streets as often as we can, and use it for stress testing and package testing.

“I’ve had the privilege to ride in it a few times, I can only closely relate that to an almost religious experience.

“Imagine going zero to 190mph in less than four city blocks - that is something no production car can even come close to.”
