    So are you sick of the Nissan GT-R coverage yet? Well to bad because we’re not. Motor Trend is now reporting that when the GT-R was lapping the Nurburgring, Nissan engineers recorded the best lap time at 7:35.

    Reliable sources told Motor Trend that the Nissan GT-R beat the Porsche 996 GT2, Porsche 977 Turbo and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. The 7:35 time of the Nissan GT-R is one second slower than the Koenigsegg CCR and two seconds slower than the Pagani Zonda F.


    Nissan is still at the Nurburgring attempting to beat its own and other lap times. Earlier this morning we reported the official specs on the GT-R. The Nissan GT-R is powered by a 3.8 liter V6 engine that produces 473 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph takes a quick 3.5 seconds while top speed is 192 mph.

    Actually it's not.

    Secondly - and I can't believe I'm having to actually say this - you drive/drove a fucking EVO....and you're calling the GT-R ugly.

    This could be the absolute pinnacle of "pot...kettle...black".

    Shit. :rofl:

    and im sure this was with r compound tires, no interior, a harder suspension, and more boost than the factory version

    i hope this car is that fast, id love to pick on up in a year or 2 but a car that has less hp and weighs more than a fucking GT2 should not be faster than it

    It is ugly and if he drove an Aztec, then you might have a point, but alas, you don't.

    This isn't a "showroom" floor car, trust me. No 3800lb+ car with 477hp will run 7:35s on a wet track, mind you, straight off the showroom floor. I expect to see high 7:40s, at best.

    You'll all shit your pants when you see the GTR on the street and go gang green when someone you know buys one.

    And you'll take a second job to buy a used one when they're tuned to 1000 reliable horsepower in 5 years.

    :gives:

    All shit like this does is give eRetards more idiocy to brag about.

    As if your car lapping the ring faster has anything to do with you being a moron.

    I think the Nissan engineers need a new battery in their stopwatch.
