Is a 1200bhp Litchfield Nissan GT-R too much for the track? - Watch here to find out

Our next Track Car of the Year onboard answers the question

The Nissan GT-R was never exactly a slow car. In standard form, a 2016 GT-R generates 542bhp. But as tested here, after it has been extensively modified by Litchfield, this GT-R is generating around 1200bhp.

evo's Jethro Bovingdon drove the car around Blyton Park as part of our Track Car of the Year test. Here is what he had to say about it.

'Litchfield's GT-R is probably the exact oppoosite of what people tell you a GT-R is like to drive. You'll have heard a million times that they're easy to drive, they understeer a bit on track, they're heavy and they drive themselves.

I don't believe that of the standard car anyway, but this car takes it to a whole different level. It has got well over 1000bhp, the suspension is really trick and incredibly aggressive, they've taken 100s of Kgs out the the shell. What's left is a GT-R in name and in some respects you feel the GT-R in it, but it's a different experience.

So how quick did it go? You'll have to watch our video to find out.
