[VIDEO] Nissan GT-R Owner Terrorizes Own Grandmother with Launch Control
When you own a sports car, it can be hard to resist the urge to show it off. Especially when your sports car is a modified Nissan GT-R with launch control. In this short video, the owner takes his own grandmother from 0-60 in under 3 seconds, with hilarious results.
The victim of this dark prank seems to have a sense that the GT-R is a sporty car, but is completely unaware of its violent potential by asking, “Is it a little like Joey’s car… the Prius?”
No… grandma. It’s not a Prius.
The GT-R is a bit of a sleeper to the untrained eye, which becomes apparent quickly at the beginning of this video. To people who don’t know what it is, it just looks like a sporty coupe, not unlike the 370Z. The fact that this particular one has been modified to run on E85 and tuned to boost the power up to a claimed 700 horsepower just enhances the shock factor.
Even in stock form, the GT-R is not to be taken lightly. The 2015 model has a 545 horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine with a dual clutch transmission that can change gears faster than you can blink and All-Wheel Drive that provides maximum acceleration and grip.
Now, we don’t ever condone reckless driving or speeding, but it looks like grandma survived the ordeal and actually had a pretty good time. There are certainly worse GT-R owners out there. Let us know what you think in the comments.
