    7min 27.56secs For Scoobie At The Ring

    YEAH RIGHT I WISH!!

    7MIN 27.56SECS FOR GT-R AT THE RING


    Nissan knocks a second and a half off GT-R lap time - more to come today?

    Nissan has returned to the Nurburgring with the 2010 GT-R and chief test driver Toshio Suzuka to continue its assault on the volume production car record.

    According to a Nissan press release issued yesterday, the test team has clocked up a 7:27.56 lap with a Japanese spec GT-R running optional V-Spec RAYS forged alloy wheels and Dunlop tyres.
    Although this is significantly faster than the GT-R's previous record, the team will continue to press home its attack today – if conditions are right - under the direction of Nissan's GT-R engineering chief Kazutoshi Mizuno.



    Apparently yesterday's time was set in dry conditions, but the track had a coating of dust and sand that is said to have reduced the available grip in some places.

    Although the team is celebrating a new GT-R record, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has previously claimed a 7:26.4 lap time in production trim – so Nissan's quest for extra pace continues.

    Didn't like the new GT-R's at first, but having seen one on the road a couple of times, my opinion has changed slightly lol. It looks awesome in the flesh.
