GT-R crushes supercars at the Ring

Nissan has revealed that its new GT-R is one of the fastest cars ever around the Nürburgring.

The car, a base specification unit fitted with standard Japanese market tyres, achieved a lap time of seven minutes and 29 seconds around the famous 'Ring.

The time was set by GT-R chief test driver Tochio Suzuki. His previous best time at the German circuit was seven minutes and 38 seconds.

"At last year's testing, we were frustrated by the conditions at the Nürburgring, always believing that the GT-R could go under seven minutes 30 seconds," said Kazutoshi Mizuno, Chief Vehicle Engineer for GT-R.

"Below seven minutes 30 seconds, the GT-R proves it is among the fastest mass-production cars in the world. We set out to build a multi-performance supercar accessible to anyone, anytime and anywhere - I believe the GT-R has delivered that promise."
