    Nissan GT-R Snares New Nurburgring Record

    The all-conquering Nissan GT-R supercar has set another lap record at the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany.

    A Japanese specification GT-R, running on Dunlop tyres with RAYS forged alloy wheels (V-spec equipment) recorded a blistering 7min 27.56 secs yesterday.

    Driven by Nissan's Chief test driver Toshio Suzuki (who recently demonstrated the GT-R to the Australian media in Sydney at Eastern Creek Raceway) piloted the performance coupe.

    Although dry, the track surface grip was impaired by dust and sand. Under the direction of Nissan GT-R Chief Vehicle Engineer, Kazutoshi Mizuno, and depending on conditions, the Nissan test team will attempt another record at the 'Ring tomorrow.

    y'know...the gtr is a gorgeous car, but I don't like a car that voids it's warranty if you don't take it to the shop afterwards for a full inspection after a day at the track.
    also, $20,000 gearbox that warranty won't cover if you turn VDC off and use launch control too much.
    it's a pretty car, but for 70k(or more, don't know what the demand inflation is on it right now) you can do much better.
    just my two pennies.
    I also wonder if they're trying to rub this in porsche's face again.

    Don't forget you have to take it to the dealership to get the oil and tranny fluid changed.
    And here say is that you have to use a specific tranny fluid that costs around 125 bucks a quart. And You can't just change the break pads when the wear down, you have to pay to get the whole brakes assembly changed out. You gotta be a rich mofo to keep up with this car.

    Its a cool car and sounds fierce, but not worth the cost, imo.

    really? given that for the same performance form another company will cost you into the 6 digits I think its a good deal for a new car.
