Kind of a weird world we live in these days when the Russians have cooler drag racing events than the country which invented said Motorsport. Moscow Ulimited is essentially a mile long drag race which brings out Russia's fastest hardware. How fast? Well, the winning GTR hit a one mile trap speed of 223 miles per hour. This is drag racing on a high end scale for the big boys. The video below takes a closer look at the top three fastest cars.

The third place car is a Protomotive Porsche 997.1 Turbo stated to have a VRT1200 package. Finishing in third place in this company is very respectable. The Porsche ran a best elapsed time of 24.540 with a trap speed of 211 miles per hour. Freakishly fast by any stretch but the top two spots were set by Nissan GT-R's.

The GT-R held 5 of the top 10 spots. Very impressive. Who held the other 5 spots? Porsche 911 Turbo cars coincidentally.
