Hot Mess!! Nissan GTR vs. Toyota Prius Drag Race – Two Worlds Collide – Road Test TV

November 28th, 2011 by Road Test TV

What? Everyone now knows that the R35 Nissan GTR is at home at the drag strip. Everyone also knows that the Toyota Prius is a fuel sipping econobox that doesn’t generally show up at a drag strip, except if the Prius driver is lost. However, at the most recent event held at Palm Beach International Raceway last Sunday, a brave Prius owner lined up next to a modified Nissan GT-R to take a stab at the 1/4 mile. The GTR is still running stock turbos, and makes´╗┐ 590 AWHP on E85 with bolt ons (intake, exhaust, midpipe). Best run to date for the GTR is a 10.2 @ 135 mph.

The result? Well…….. you’ll have to watch the video to find out.
