Hablamos de nada menos que 1,100 caballos de fuerza.

Si lo tuyo es la velocidad pura, entonces hay pocos lugares tan emocionantes como Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds y su pista de 2.7 millas. Los poderosos autos de todas las formas y tamaños llegan a la pista para varias carreras de velocidad máxima de diferentes longitudes, el último retador es un GT-R 2009 modificado que rompió la barrera de las las 200 millas por hora en la carrera de una milla con partida detenida. 

Si bien no conocemos las modificaciones del Nissan, sí sabemos los resultados de ellas. Según la tarjeta de información en el video, el carro llega a 1,100 caballos de fuerza y 850 lbs-pie de torque. Sin embargo, hay una pequeña discrepancia en la descripción del video que no especifica la clasificación de torque como en las ruedas o en el cigüeñal. De cualquier manera, Godzilla genera una cantidad bestial de potencia con su motor V6 de 3.8 litros y doble turbocompresor.

El GT-R parte lentamente desde la línea. El conductor probablemente sobreaceleró el vehículo perdiendo valiosa tracción. Luego se puede apreciar una acelerada a fondo recién al alcanzar 60 millas por hora. Una vez lanzado, el GT-R trepa a más de 90 mph muy rápidamente, y luego a más de 140, camino a las 215. O más bien a, 214.224 mph para ser exactos. Sigue siendo muy rápido.  

Si hubiera un terreno más largo, que hay de sobra, podría haber superado fácilmente la marca de las 215 mph. Al menos así es cómo se ve en el video. Los campos de pruebas son enormes, capaces de permitir una carrera de velocidad de hasta 2.5 millas con buen espacio restante para reducir la velocidad de manera segura. Llegar a 215 mph es un logro impresionante; sin embargo, su velocidad máxima podría ser mayor que eso, y ese sería un video emocionante para ver.

Modified Nissan GTR Goes 200+ MPH in the Standing Mile

The Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds (JBPG) runway, located in Merritt Island FL. is not only the widest and flattest runway in the world but also close to the longest. For over 10 years, Johnny Bohmer has been performing Straight Line Aerodynamic Testing for many manufacturers and thousands of vehicles here. The all concrete runway is 3 miles long with an additional 1000 ft. asphalt runoff on each end. The runway is also 100 yds. wide with an additional 50ft wide traffic lane on each side and has an elevation variance of only 1⁄4 in. from north to south over the 3 miles making this one of the flattest, large surface concrete platforms in the world. You hardly notice the 24 in. crown in the center of the runway due to the immense width of the surface. In todays’ time, the availability of concrete would make this runway impossible to build. The traction is also substantially better here than any street surface; not as good as a drag strip, but much better than the street. Johnny Bohmer has developed a program to debunk myths and fact check the manufacturer’s claims of vehicles performance. While testing the vehicles, Johnny’s team will data log each vehicle and record the findings. These have been useful to many manufacturers because of the vehicles ability to drive at speed for 2.5 miles while still have a safe, shut down area. Performance videos will be posted to the public on the recently started, Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds YouTube channel.

The vehicles being tested are timed and speed checked with Garmin and GoPro interior monitoring systems. External timing and speed are performed by the International Mile Racing Association (IMRA) who is a sanctioning body accepted by numerous auto groups and the Guinness Book of World Records. Johnny and his team will routinely test 1⁄2 mile, 1 mile, 1.5 mile, 2 mile, 2.3 mile, 2.5 mile and 2.7 mile distances. Manufacturers come from all over the world to test many types of vehicles at JBPG including sports cars, race cars, tractor trailers, electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, fire safety, law enforcement and the list goes on. On

March 9, 2019, Johnny Bohmer had a small group of vehicles testing at JBPG; ranging from the Bugatti Chiron and Porsche GT2RS to the Ford GT and Nissan GTR. The weather conditions that day are listed below.

We tested a highly modified, 2009 Nissan GTR over the Standing Mile and were eager to see the results.

The professional driver performed the test and was able to achieve a surprising, 214.224 MPH (344.760 KPH) speed.

One of the main functions of the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds is to safely determine all aspects of a vehicle’s performance capabilities while determining the accuracy of the manufacturer’s claims. Last but not least, please subscribe to the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds YouTube channel as we continue to perform more testing with some of your favorite vehicles.
