AMG Monsters Welcome Turbo Nismo Racer into the Fold
Even stock AMG cars are quick as hell, so this YouTuber’s 700-horsepower Nissan must’ve earned him some serious clout.
The automotive enthusiast world has many different subcultures. You’re got your muscle car fanatics and your import nuts. Then you’ve got your truck lovers and off-roaders. There are clubs for owners of vintage cars. And let’s not forget the brand-specific groups within all of those categories. Despite all of the obvious differences that exist between brands and models, it’s possible for the love of automobiles to transcend badges and countries of origin.
Gearheads can get along, no matter who made their cars. In this video, Youtuber Freshhkiicks takes his souped-up import on a fast nighttime drive through California alongside a group of Mercedes and AMG owners.
Even stock AMGs are quick as hell, so Freshhkiicks needs a serious machine to keep up. We think it’s safe to say he has the necessary numbers, even if they don’t come out of a handbuilt German engine. Freshhkiicks‘s Nissan 350Z is turbocharged and produces a stout 700 horsepower and 680 lb-ft of torque – at the rear wheels.
After gassing up, he meets up with a local group of car nuts. One has an 800-horsepower Nissan GT-R running E85 and an anti-lag system. The others are in Mercedes-Benz and AMG performance cars. There’s a CLS or two, an SLK55, an SL, and some Cs. According to Freshhkiicks, one of the CLSs has been tuned and runs on race gas. Sounds as if everyone is ready for a fun and fast night in SoCal.
The AMGs roar out of the meeting spot and build up a hell of a lead. During his blast down the freeway, Freshhkiicks takes on the monstrous GTR. The all-wheel-drive Nissan shoots forward as if propelled by a rocket and looks even faster because Freshhkiicks‘s 350Z keeps spinning its wheels, losing the grip they desperately need to help him keep up.
Later on, Freshhkiicks rolls up alongside one of the CLSs for a couple of pulls. Although there’s no official start to them, at the end of both runs it’s clear that the 350Z is capable of hanging with AMG’s hot rods.
