    It has been proven again and again that those duel clutch auto's shift time makes a HUGE difference over a track as large as the nurburgring. It may only be half a second faster, but that adds up on a 8 minute track.

    So if the ZR1 is anywhere close to the GTR's time using a proper gearbox, than it is going to be much faster were it matters.

    i was just thinking about how the zr1 and gtr-vspec (or z06/gtr) need to do a full blown 20 lap race. once the noobs see how many times the GTR has lapped the z06, they will shut up.

    Who cares, there's a $30k msrp difference between the ZR1 and GT-R. If they want to make such a horrible comparison just to feel better, let them. :rofl:

    Yes, GTR 'sackriders' use VTEC in their statements.

    The fuck is wrong with you :ugh:

    Oh well, at least the company that makes the car we are sackriding isn't having to most likely borrow 10+ billion dollars to even stay in operation :rofl:

    the leather dash is really nice.

    The steering wheels the only really let down now, and the climate control / sat nav surrounds.

    Your point is?

    Nissan making money

    GM needing to borrow money because they aren't making jack shit.

    The fuck does it matter what they sell if the company is on the verge of going out of business

    we'll see.

    I don't believe nissan has always been so profitable. And its only your retarded american divisons of general motors that can't make money. The european and australian segments do just fine.

    Most companies aren't always profitable, and sorry, if our 'retarded' division goes away guess what would happen to your almighty corvette

    Yeah, at their worst they needed about $4 billion. GM needs more than double that just to keep their head above water.
