Here's a video showing the 2012 Nissan GT-R cracking its old record on the Nürburgring-Nordschliefe track.

Unfortunately, the video is in Japanese but we do get to see all 7 minutes and 24.22 seconds of the GT-R's track run from inside the cabin. That time is still slower Porsche's 911 GT2 RS, which comes in at 7m and 18 seconds according to Porsche.

The 2012 Nissan GT-R comes with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine with an output of 530 hp (395 kW / 537 PS) and 488 lb-ft (661 Nm) of torque. It does the 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds flat. Though, some may need the help of its launch control R-Mode Start Function (LC4 R35) to achieve that.

The 2012 GT-R beats the 2011's track time of 7 minutes 26.7 seconds by almost 2.5 seconds and its sure grip on the track is a testament to its all-wheel drive system. The GT-R's chief designer Kazutoshi Mizuno makes an appearance in the video too. He should be proud of his achievement.
