Alpha 12 Package

Acceleration better than most dedicated drag cars with enough top end speed to put any exotic to shame, yet mild mannered enough for daily use.  At over 1500 HP the AMS Alpha 12 was developed to transform your GT-R into one of the fastest, street legal cars to ever hit the highway. In initial testing we set a new record for 60-130 mph acceleration at a blistering 3.31 seconds!  You would be hard pressed to find ANY vehicle in the world on the road or the track that can come close to your Alpha 12 GT-R!  Not even the $1.5M Bugatti Veyron can compare!

The Most Powerful GT-R Package On The Market, Yet Mild Mannered For The Street

The key to the menacing power of the Alpha 12 is the AMS Turbo System capable of generating over 1500 HP yet providing an enormous and usable powerband.  In addition a comprehensive list of supporting Alpha Series components integrate to form a turn-key solution for unmatched power and performance.

Typically power like this comes at the cost of driveability issues and a narrow powerband. That is not the case with the Alpha 12 as every aspect of this package was fine tuned to allow for a true Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  Your GT-R will go from mild-mannered and streetable one moment to white-knuckled power the next.

Quality, Integrity, RESULTS

At AMS we back up our packages with real-world results.  In preliminary testing, we shattered the World Record for Quickest and Fastest GT-R running a 8.97 @ 169.5mph in the quarter mile in full street trim! 0 to 170 MPH was reached in a quarter of a mile!  Now that’s performance that speaks volumes…

The Alpha 12 continues to provide proven and repeatable results.  Not only was an Alpha 12 the first R35 GT-R in the 8′s back in 2011, more customer owned Alpha 12 GT-R’s around the world are backed by 8 second time slips at the drag strip than all of our competitors.

Alpha 12 Sets The Record For World’s Fastest GT-R… Twice!

In the Fall of 2011, two customers with Alpha 12 GT-R’s set new records in a standing mile. At the Moscow Unlimited the record was set with a 215 mph run… on a wet track! This record did not stand long. Another Alpha 12 GT-R just weeks later at the Texas Mile broke the record again at 216.9 mph even with a 25 mph head wind!

In 2012 the record was broken yet again in Russia.  A customer owned Alpha 12 ran an astounding 232mph standing mile in just 22.779 seconds.  From the Drag Strip to Standing Mile Competitions, to 200+ mph racing on Russian highways, Alpha 12 GT-R’s are terrorizing the “competition” wherever they go.

2013 Motor Trend Alpha 12 Review

Here is what Michael Shaffer of Motor Trend had to say about his seat time in an Alpha 12

“The type of straight-line violence the Alpha 12 is capable of is truly mind-bending. I reckon it’s what F/A-18 Super Hornet pilots feel every time they launch from a carrier: instant, massive, unholy, mega-positive-G-load thrust. Open-wheel Formula car, tuned rocket ship, exotic European ride – nothing compares in my experience.”

Michael Harley of AutoBlog had this to say

“The Alpha 12 is built solely to conquer. Dominating a race from right here to over there is its competency, and the turbocharged coupe simply annihilates everything in the process.”
