All wheel drive... and the front tires are as wide as rear ones...

Nothing the RB26 couldn't do with a little work. Only 1000 Hp out of a 6.7 liter QT? And I bet it steers well with the front weight bias of a Peterbuilt......

Zen31Zr, a RB26 can surely produce 1000 hp or even more but not with what you call a little work (the last quote I had from japan for that kind of thing was around 40.000 USD). At this level of power, and according to the japanese tuning shop, a RB26 has the reliability of a grenade.

The all aluminum V12 on that car weighs only 200 kg which is about the weight of a RB26 and it's cast iron block.

The weight distribution is 55% on the front and 45% on the rear.
I don't have any numbers for the Peterbuilt but I would race against one with a certain level of confidence...

I'd sooner trust the RB26s iron block than an all aluminum one. The RB26 will last longer, and no it is not a "grenade". I can say you've probably never seen these engines race, then, making statements like that. And yes, I know about costs involved for the RB to run 1000 Hp or more, but also remember that this is Nissans race block, and it is quite capable of handling it. The all aluminum block on that V12 would shatter under high boost long before the RB ever would, I guarantee that. Probably why that V12 isn't very highly boosted. At 6.7 liters, it's almost 3 times bigger than the RB and with the quad turbos and all the associated plumbing, I doubt it weighs the same as the RB. I'd like to see actual proof of that weight figure. If it weighs the same, with all the extras, then it's pretty weak comparatively. Sounds like somebodies made a ridiculous counterpart to the Bugatti Veyron......

I'd like to know how come there are no under-hood pics of the car. What car at a car show doesn't have it's hood open, usually.

It also just looks like somebody re-decaled a Pennzoil GTR. Could have been a little more imaginative about the paint job.

I think the reason for using a v12 for 1000hp was more on the reliability side.. Now Im not saying that the Rb26 couldn't handle it. im simply saying that its easier for a V12 Quad Turbo motor to hit 1000hp with less stress on the engine parts, than it is for a inline 6 with twins!. I bet they had to do less to the internals of the v12 then the rb26. I have seen GTR's hit more than 1000hp but it gets kinda pricey to maintain. The Rb26 is a marvelous engine and is capable of great things but you have to admit that Better engines do exist! im not saying this V12 is better. Plus a little change never hurt anyone.

I'm curious as to the donor vehicle the engine came from, or if it is a new engine, who the manufacturer is. Aren't a whole lot of V12 makers these days, Mercedes, Ferrari and BMW probably cover 50% of them...... A cool swap none the less.

I'm also curious about the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times. 0-60 in 3, but the 1/4 mile comes in 9 seconds? Must have a hard time getting going. My 500 could do 0-60 in 3......

probably a jag engine

high 0-60 = no traction or lots of lag.

Lag on a quad-turbo? Pretty low probability. No traction with AWD? Also low probability.

mmm Quad turbo v12 in a Skyline must be pretty awesome considering the tehcnology behind the four wheel drive system if it was kept in tact. I would also stick with the RB cause i have read of RB pushing up to and over 1500HP(race cars). I mean the skyline is rated as one of the best cars ever built and now they do something wierd like putting a ALU V12 quad turbo in.

Definatly something different thou.

1500hp races cars?? You mean drag cars. Plus the most anyone has done in a skyline is somewhere around 1,300hp. www.exvitermini.com.

A race car is dominated by class and such, in the JGTC and else where its rare to find a car over 700hp. Though the le mans cars are ( unlimted class... eg Audi R8, Bently Speed 7) completely different.
