In theory, building a unlimited street-legal race car is pretty simple. You add parts to boost horsepower, run until something breaks, fix it and repeat. In practice, massaging machines up to 2,000 hp out of regular production models requires years of dedication and a high level of engineering expertise — which is why head-up racing events like the Texas Invitational often feature the same handful of shops battling for top prizes.

Last weekend, the fall Texas Invitational held its King of the Streets competition that drew 42 of the highest-power Lamborghinis, Vipers and Nissan GT-Rs available. This year’s winner: the Alpha Omega GT-R of AMS Performance, driven and built by Ivan Phipps, featuring at least 2,000 hp from the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6, enough power to set a new 1/4-mile record for a GT-R at 7.7 seconds/186 mph. See the entire competition below courtesy 1320video.com.

The 2,000hp Alpha Omega GT-R piloted by Ivan Phipps claims the overall King of the Streets Texas Invitational Title and becomes one of the most deserving cars of the “Lambo Killer” title people like to throw around after these races.

Taking down some of the FASTEST cars in the “street car / street” roll racing world as they climbed the brackets of a 42 car roll race including 2000hp Heffner & UGR Twin Turbo Lambo’s, 1500-1600hp Twin Turbo Vipers and an 1100hp Supra!
