Fast Friday: Alpha 12 GTR

I’m not a huge GTR fan, but this is pretty crazy. It’s called the Alpha 12 GT-R, and it’s totally bat shit insane. Here are a couple of performance figures that will make your head spin:

Horsepower: 1,700
Top speed: 237mph
0-60mph: 2.5s
60-130mph: 3.3s
Price: $200k

Now you could spend a lot less for a motorcycle, but it’s kind of crazy to think that a street car (that seats 4 people) can go that fast. The biggest down side is that there are probably only a couple of places in the world where you can take advantage of all that speed. It has 3x the power of a stock GT-R… why would anyone need that much power?
