Watch A Nissan GT-R Slide Sideways At 233 MPH

The tuning shop AMS Performance took their 1,250 wheel horsepower "Alpha Omega" GT-R to the Texas Mile to break the top speed record for GT-Rs. That's when their car tried to murder their driver.


Up until last weekend, the top speed record for a GT-R was 218 miles per hour. According to AMS, their GT-R passed the mile marker at 233.1 mph. As the driver opened the parachute, the car hit a dip in the runway and went a full 90 degrees sideways.

Watching the driver reel in the slide makes it look like we have a second contender for the best save of the year.
