Straightliners: Zip vs GT-R
So, 480hp Nissan GT-R versus our race tuned Polini Big Evolution 94cc Zip, head to head, which would win in a sprint race? Well if you've attended drag race meets before then you'll know that highly tuned high-spec race scoots are like missiles when it comes to straight line speed. We knew our Zip tuned to the hilt with Polini goodies would deliver, it was then down to Sam, assigned to the controls, to launch the Zip off the line. How would our pocket rocket compare against the ferocious might of Godzilla? Sit back and watch the video...

The Nissan GT-R is world renowned for being one of the fastest cars on the block with a staggering 0-60 acceleration time along with a scary top speed. The GT-R has been in numerous comparisons against equally big hp cars and motorcycles, but we think it’s time for our race scooter to try its luck against Godzilla in a less than 100 meter showdown. Crazy it may be but the scooter in question is tuned to the edge of its life and with some basic mathematics its power-to-weight ratio is nearly 650hp compared to the GT-R’s stock 480hp. Even we're not sure how this will turn out but it will be a giggle finding out.
Coming soon... Watch our 94cc 25.5hp Piaggio Zip go head to head with the GT-R in our up-and-coming video. In the meantime, check out our previous movies on YouTube.
