    im in japan right now and just saw my first R35 GTR in red. damn car looks soo sexy.

    it was parked in front of a car dealership. I think it was used since it already had plates on it.

    Like ive said it's starting to flow through.

    In 1997 Autocar sent two of its best drivers to test out a production Nissan GTR to try to match the sub 8 minute record. Two of their best drivers included two-times Le Mans winner Robert Nearn, and Steve Sutcliffe. Their best time was 8:28.1.

    Nothing there proves they are stock production models.

    Who gives a shit if they were using race tires? Who would ever go on the Nurburgring running Aquatreads? You want to tell me Porsche doesn't use race tires when they track their cars?

    really! Where, provide the link. Everything from Nissan says that it is a stock car on stock tires. Why would they lie? What would be proof to you, other than an official statement from the manufacturer + the run ON video?

    Jesus you all are so deep in denial it's hysterical. :rofl:

    Well done! Captain obvious signing in. Ofcourse no one knows what other manufacturers do also. :ugh:

    I was saying that a video proves nothing of what car went round the track; no video does. Only that the time was set by a car with a GTR interior as that's all we can see in the video.

    What makes this stand out above other manufacturers is that in 1997 two drivers were nearly 30 seconds off the pace of the Nissan time. That's more than driver skill.

    And this time around, they set a lap time that nearly all major car magazines and websites are saying is more than that car is capable of.

    And when Nissan are quoting varying power outputs all over the place, there is good reason to be critical.

    Another Nissan claim that has people calling :bs :bs :bs :bs :bs





    According to Nismo, the car ran the quarter mile in 10.1 seconds; its zero-to-60-mph time is around 3.0 flat. That's faster than the Ferrari Enzo.

    Sorry, I was operating under the delusion that people only talk about things they care about.
