Switzer World's Fastest GTR

Video: Inside the World’s Fastest GTR

A few days ago, the 1500+ HP, Switzer Performance-built “Goliath” GTR became the fastest GTR in the world.

Top Speed Moscow

Our good friends from Tuning-Technologies Russia just got back from last weekend’s “Top Speed” tuner event in Russia, where he took his Switzer-tuned L4 P700/750 Porsche 997 out to run alongside twin-turbo Ford GTs and Audi R8s, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, and more.
