The totally tricked-out Red Katana may be the 8-second GTR that’s getting all the attention, but just because it’s the most photogenic Switzer R1K-X around here doesn’t mean that it’s the only one! This particular black Switzer R1K-X GTR is every bit the 1400 hp street-beast that the Red Katana is, and it’s heading to its owner’s home in Dubai later this week.
This Switzer R1K-X GTR promises to be an absolute terror, too! With nearly 1300 wheel horsepower available on race gas, any car would be fast. This PKG, though, has already proven itself to be more than just “fast” by delivering several sub-nine runs in the Red Katana, which weighs nearly 300 lbs. more than this stock-weight GTR. Not bad!
Check out the quick R1K-X photo gallery, below, and (especially if you’re in Dubai and like to bet on street races) try to memorize the details. If you’re planning on lining up alongside this car, Switzer Performance can usually turn a GTR into a fully-built R1K-X GTR for you in about 12 weeks. Until then, remember this advice: always bet on black.
