Switzer Performance Reveals E85 Nissan

According to autoevolution.com, Switzer Performance has produced a Nissan GTR that runs on E85. The Switzer E900 is named so because it runs on ethanol fuel and produces no less than 900 horsepower.

Working in New Zealand, the group partnered with Dodson Motorsports to beef up the horsepower. The obious fuel to use was 85 percent ethanol which assists in boosting the car from 60 to 130 mph in under 6 seconds.

“E85 isn’t without its trade-offs. We had to modify the fuel system to handle the fuel and significantly increase the size of the injectors, also, but in the end we had a fuel that gave us everything we needed to crank up the boost on this car and deliver over 900 hp,” Tym Switzer said in a statement for the press.

Other vehicle traits include an Amuse carbon fiber aero package, 3-way adjustable suspension, and 20-inch BBS wheels that are an inch wider than stock at all four corners.

“With most high-horsepower cars, you can barely breathe after just a few dyno runs,” Switzer added. “With the E85, we were able to run pull after pull to dial in the tune without feeling any effects of the usual emissions. It’s hardly scientific, but there was a noticeable improvement in the air quality in the shop compared to race gas.”
