Like Godzilla Destroying Tokyo, New Nissan GT-R Attacks 'Ring, Bests Previous Time

The new Nissan GT-R wasn't able to best the Corvette ZR1's 7:26.4 standing Nurburgring record lap time, but Godzilla did bring the hurt with a lap time of 7:26.7 run on April 23, 2009. Now there's in-car video proof.

Nissan's Chief test driver, Toshio Suzuki hopped behind the wheel of the newly revised 2010 GT-R in an attempt to shave an additional 3 seconds off the previous 7 minute 29 second lap time. He accomplished his goal — but in the grand scheme of things, who cares if he didn't beat the competition? It’s still a helluva fast run around an extremely technical course.
