[Ben] I’m nearly able to finally release the results of Option’s Nardo challenge where a new FASTEST top speed record was made for Japanese sports cars.
I’m still sorting through 1200 pictures I took while there with the teams. Here’s one that’ll get a feel of the challengers just moments before they made their first high speed runs on the famed Nardo ring. Check back tomorrow for results of how fast these hyper tuned GT-Rs went. I’ll be rolling out many pictures over coming days and weeks.
We’re proud to represent the products worldwide for all 3 challengers:Powerhouse Amuse Top Secret – Performance Engineering Service and Phoenixs Power

Option Nardo Italy: So…who has the fastest top speed Japanese car? R35 GT-R at 234 MPH

[Ben] Here’s the speed: 377kmh (234mph) However there’s a bit more to the story. Nobody likes ties but what we were left with as we left Nardo was nearly a tie. Even worse, in both cases both cars Top Secret – Performance Engineering Service and Powerhouse Amuse were unable to reach their true potential due to facing the same unexpected computer error at 7500rpm in 6th gear. As a result both cars pulled to 7500rpm in 6th gear and both maxed out electronically rather than reach their potential. They had more speed in them. The Top Secret car was the winner with a speed of 377km/h whereas the Amuse car reached 373km/h. The difference of 4km/h is attributed to slightly different final drive gear ratios between the two. Ask anyone there and we all believe they both could have passed 400km/h if not for the ECU problem. Call it a tie if you want, but the winner was ultimately Top Secret by a very small margin. Smoky remains on top as having the fastest Japanese street car ever made! We all hope to find the true potential of these cars next year with Option’s next Nardo attack!
More behind the scenes updates from Nardo coming from us soon.
