Nissan GT-R Races a Fighter Jet

Speed can be fun in any language. Combine the thrill of doing something bad, the heightened senses from an adrenaline rush and the overwhelming feeling of freedom and you’ve got yourself one awesome adventure cocktail.  Nissan’s German arm recently pitted a GT-R up against an ex-Swiss Air Force fighter jet, called the Hawker Hunter. While the idea of a car vs. plane knockdown, drag-out fight is nothing new, this may be the first time a GT-R has been involved in one.

We know you won’t be disappointed by this action, which shows the two high-speed machines racing along the two-kilometer runway. We don’t want to ruin the suspense, so scroll down for the latest match-up of sports car versus fighter jet.

Reventon vs. Nissan GT-R vs. Ducati 1098

What to do with two supercars and one impressive motorcycle?

2013 Nissan GT-R

Drag race, of course! Motor Trend has done it again, this time with three breathtaking pieces of machinery and one long straightaway.

The Lamborghini Reventon is a mid engine sports car that debuted in 2007. The average price of one of these babies is around two million dollars! Rated at 693 hp, its tops speed has been recorded at 211 mph. Ducati manufacturers claim 160 hp and the 0-60 mph time is less than three seconds. Top speeds are estimated around 180 mph. The GT-R has been upgraded in the 2013 models to 580 hp.

The results of the first race may have been based on the Nissan’s tune-up, because it raced for first with the Ducati, while leaving the Reventon far behind after a poor launch. When the Ducati opted out of a second race, the GT-R triumphed again, despite the Lamborghini’s improved launch. In one final race, the all-wheel-drive supercars raced from a rolling start. So which car won the third and final race? You’ll have to check out the video below for the answer!
