    • A closer look at the top three fastest cars from the Moscow Unlimited event in September of last year including the third place Protomotive VRT1200 997.1 Turbo

      Kind of a weird world we live in these days when the Russians have cooler drag racing events than the country which invented said Motorsport. Moscow Ulimited is essentially a mile long drag race which brings out Russia's fastest hardware. How fast? Well, the winning GTR hit a one mile trap speed of 223 miles per hour. This is drag racing on a high end scale for the big boys. The video below takes a closer look at the top three fastest cars.


      The third place car is a Protomotive Porsche 997.1 Turbo stated to have a VRT1200 package. Finishing in third place in this company is very respectable. The Porsche ran a best elapsed time of 24.540 with a trap speed of 211 miles per hour. Freakishly fast by any stretch but the top two spots were set by Nissan GT-R's.

      The GT-R held 5 of the top 10 spots. Very impressive. Who held the other 5 spots? Porsche 911 Turbo cars coincidentally.

      Here is a rundown of the top 10:

      1) #888, Oleg K. Nissan GT-R (R35) Mk.1 DT1200 (2009, 1200 HP) 23.658 sec. (358.92 km/h)

      2) #777, Jury M. Nissan GT-R (R35) Mk.1 AMS Alpha 12+ (2011, 1550 HP) 24.347 sec. (360.00 km/h)

      3) #30, Sergey I. Porsche 911 Turbo (997) Mk.1 Protomotive R1200 (2007, 1200 HP) 24.540 sec (340.26 km/h)

      4) #67, Dmitriy K. Nissan GT-R (R35) Mk.1 V-Spec Altechno / EcuTek Stage 2 (2010, 1000 HP) 25.364 sec. (320.85 km/h)

      5) #45, Dmitriy S. Porsche 911 Turbo (997) Mk.1 Protomotive R1000 (2007, 1000 HP) 25.390 sec. (326.67 km/h)

      6) #96, Andrey N. Porsche 911 GT2 (997) Mk.1 9ff 1150 Garrett (2009, 1100 HP) 25.398 sec. (357.49 km/h)

      7) #91, Dmitriy Z. Nissan GT-R (R35) Mk.1 HKS P800 (2009, 800 HP) 25.408 sec. (328.46 km/h)

      8) #15, Andrey N. Porsche 911 Turbo (997) Mk.1 Protomotive R900 (2006, 900 HP) 25.464 sec. (324.03 km/h)

      9) #26, Konstantin T. Porsche 911 Turbo (996) 9ff 900 Garrett (900 HP) 25.827 sec. (326.08 km/h)

      10) #33, Aleksander P. Nissan GT-R (R35) Mk.1 Boostlogic Godzilla 1100 (2010, 1100 HP) 26.737 sec. (324.61 km/h)

      Video showing the top three on this list below. GermanBoost will try to make its way out to this event at some point for some on scene coverage of Moscow's performance car scene. Enjoy.

        If it was fully open to anyone i could imagine many other capable engines and cars that could compete

        insane how they have to slow the launch and lengthen the gearing so much.. Normally you'd expect those cars and motors to run what.. 8's? Low 8's? Not low 10 high 9.. I know totally different setups.
        At this point, it basically looks like pay a fee to enter your car, bring a helmet & run whatever you got.

        So the GTR that won is just as fast as the ICS e36 M3 in the mile. Interesting.

        How long did it take the ICS E36 M3 to cover the mile? The E36 is def significantly lighter than the GTR, so it'd be great to see their power/weight ratios compared also

        The mile is really all about trap speed. ET is cool and all but it's a power run.

        Just asking cause that's how the Moscow Unlimited ranked their cars. The 3 cars with the fastest trap speed finished 1st, 2nd and 6th​.

        Ya, I disagree with their ranking system. It favors all wheel drive cars versus power. It also turns it into a mile drag instead of a mile run. You can roll into the throttle at the Texas mile, how it should be.

        You can't expect rear wheel drive cars to have the rubber necessary for traction AND trap speed. So, I feel it's slanted the wrong way.

        I don't expect you to know, but is this how they ranked this specific event or is this how they decide the winner for every event? The Moscow stuff def seems a lot more like for every to bring out their toys & not a tuner showcase like at the Texas Milke/TX2k__

        Fortunately I do, every event result I have seen has been sorted by ET.

        Oh no, it is a tuner showcase and a Russian hardware showcase but it isn't up to Texas2K hp standards. It's definitely highly impressive though.

        I bet the aero in a GTR is worlds better then what is found in a 99 bmw m3. Click here to enlarge

        Correct. I also bet the track in Russia isn't as choppy as the 1 in Texas....
