Godzilla inches closer to Corvette's Nurburgring record time.
Nissan has made their mark again yesterday at what is inarguably the world's most challenging race track - the Nurburgring - by setting a new lap record of 7 minutes 26 minutes 70.
This beats their recent record of 7 minutes 27 seconds 56 which was set on 15th April 2009.
"This record demonstrates our commitment to the continuous evolution of the Nissan GT-R," says Kazutoshi Mizuno, Chief Vehicle Engineer and Chief Vehicle Specialist. "We would like to continue delivering the passion and pride of ownership to our customers by improving its performance every year."
Porsche, however, have had difficulty believing Nissan's claims, insisting that they only managed to clock 7 minutes 54 with it, driven by Porsche's own chassis development engineer.
Nissan, befuddled by the German manufacturer's results, had offered driving tips for them to get the best out of the GT-R.
The Nissan GT-R has won more than a dozen awards globally including Car of the Year from CAR Magazine in the UK, and Car of the Year by both Motor Trend and Autombile Magazine in the US.
The model R35 GT-R was first launched in Japan in December 2007, selling 5,900 units until March 2009. It went on sale in the US in July 2008, where 2,100 have been sold so far.
