Severn Valley Motorsport: The GTR the world was not ready for, the Hulk. A blast from the past

Here at Severn Valley Motorsport, we hold a lot of pride when it comes down to our work with all things GTR. An example of this would be our Nissan Qashqai R. A Nissan Qashqai with Nissan GTR internals, and pushing 1000+bhp. However, that is nothing compared to this, that we at Severn Valley Motorsport built.

I present to you... The Hulk. This GTR has been has been around for over a decade, and has received a lot of changes both inside and outside throughout its life. Back in 2012, it got its name out into the world by setting a world record top speed of 218mph at the RAF Marham military base in Norfolk, UK, and pushing a power output of 1,250hp, which is insane. Underneath the hood of this GTR, there is a huge amount of mods that were made to it.

The engine mods include:

-SVM HULK Spec Forged Blueprinted Unit 4.2L

-92.4 Billet Greddy Crankshaft assembly & boost logic Crank damper/ rotating mass dynamically balanced

This was the GTR that the world was not ready for, and it certainly became a game changer and also become one of the most well known GTR's. Now, lets take a little jump into the future.
