Nissan GT-R "R1K-X Red Katana" | By Switzer

Shots of Switzer's latest pavement-shredding beast, the Nissan GT-R R1K-X Red Katana, have been unleashed showcasing a car that is just as striking on the outside as it is under the hood. Everything about this car has been touched by Switzer, beginning with a new aerodynamic body kit coated with a two-tone paint job, continuing inside to its refinished quilted leather interior, and, of course, its 1,400 horsepower power-train capable of pulling you down the road in about 9.0 seconds. All that power comes from a custom-built VR38 Nissan engine, complete with reinforced rods and pistons, tuner cam-shafts, a new intercooler, and SS90 exhaust. Ultimately, what Switzer has created is a ride that can more than hold its own on the track against the other GTR's, but then, once everyone is done, you can pack it with all your gear, crank of the A/C and the radio and enjoy a luxury ride home.
