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.

P800 GTR 0-180 (again)

A few weeks ago, we posted Brian Zuk’s excellent, high-definition(720p), in-car video of a Switzer Performance P800 GTR blasting down a private runway from a dig to well over 180 mph (that’s 0-300 km/h, for our metric friends).

Switzer’s Ultimate Street Edition (USE) cars are built to be just that: street cars.

Still the One

The car you see here is, as far as I’m concerned, the car that started it all. The is the stock-engine 1/4 mile record-holding Porsche 997 that, in 2008, got my attention. Within the month, Tym Switzer and I were talking regularly and by December of that same year, I was on a flight to …
