We have been told about the Nissan GT-R super lap around Germany's Nurburgring, but we are yet to see the evidence. Fortunately an astute fan has recorded a television screen showing full footage at what is said to be a Nissan event display.

We have been told about the Nissan GT-R super lap around Germany's Nurburgring, but we are yet to see the evidence. Fortunately an astute fan has recorded a television screen showing full footage at what is said to be a Nissan event display.

Nissan did initially claim the prototype used was a completely unmodified GT-R, but later information surfaced that it did feature a number of small tweaks we are yet top see in the Japanese spec model, but we are assured these tweaks will be incorporated into the Euro-Spec version.

The lap time was announced almost exactly one month a go, and puts it just 2 seconds behind the overall production car lap record of 7 minutes 27 seconds current held by the Pagani Zonda. There are also claims by the boffins at General Motors that the GT-R could well lose its spot to the Corvette ZR1 after Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter said “the ZR1 will beat the track record for production cars at any road course in the world.” But despite the ZR1 being spotted close the Nurburgring early last month GM are yet to make any official announcement leading us to believe the ZR1 was just over hyped possibly for publicity purposes.
