After numerous sightings and excessive testing on the 2012 Nissan GT-R we was expecting to see an official release of its Nordschleife time, and wondered if they improved over the previous record with 7:24.22 compared to the 2011 record of 7:26.7.
This is impressive considering the Porsche Flagship 911 GT2 RS did it in 7:18 and the Maserati MC12 which managed a 7:24.29.
However one thing is missing from the GT2 RS claim is the cockpit footage.
The 2012 Nissan GT-R comes with a twin turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine with an output of 530 hp and 488 lb-ft of torque.
The GT-R’s chief designer Kazutoshi Mizuno deserves the praise for this achievement and I look forward to the Spec-V times which “Should” be ahead of the GT2 RS.
