Video: Ethanol-Powered Switzer E900 on The Smoking Tire

The last time I was playing in the Switzer sandbox was almost 2 years ago, when the Ohio-based tuner rolled out its first 900+ hp E85-fueled supercar. We I named the car “Cornzilla”, which I felt was very clever. Here’s a secret, though – and it’s something even more clever than my maize-based attempts at flex-fuel humor: the car works.

Switzer’s E900 model GTR Nissans works so well, in fact, that the company’s built a few more – and one of them recently whipped the competition at this year’s Runway Tuner Shootout back in March. That showing got the attention of Matt Farah’s Smoking Tire blog, which called the E900 “not just another GTR, because this is the fastest street car he’s ever driven.”
