Slow as dirt.

It's time is a bit faster than the super slow Porsche 911 turbo though and only little slower than the kind-of-slow Porsche Carrera GT.

i cant understand why the 911 Turbo is everybodys goal, the R8, the Gt-R...

its about $30,000 more than a GT3 which it isnt nearly as good as, most of the people who buy it are poseurs, just walk into a Porsche showroom, for every
5 Turbos 4 of them will be automatic and filled with options that make it slower like 21" wheels. the Turbo is a Cash Cow for Porsche. thats why the came out with a convertible a couple years back.

because they say a 911 turbo can be driven daily..its a luxury sports car. Cars like the z06, pagani zonda, carrera GT, and carrera GT3 can't be driven daily confortibly..

thats totally false as my old man drives his z06 daily but to the public the idea that the 911 turbo is the perfect daily sports car still exsists. I do believe the 911 GT3 is superior in every way to the turbo..

The car got 7.38..it's in the damn opening post of the topic.

Why are you referencing the older time you posted?

Much is being made of the car's lap time at the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany. Mizuno claimed a time of 7minutes 38 seconds, compared with 7:43 for a Porsche 911 GT3 and 7:32 for a Carrera GT, but he was anxious to point out that there had been "two wet patches on the circuit." Indeed, he mentioned the "wet patches" so many times that you wondered why Nissan simply hadn't waited for a dry day.

Mizuno reckoned that a time of around 7:30 should have been possible in the dry, but that going much faster would have required hand-cut slicks, which isn't "real world." Bizarrely, Nissan admitted to having different test drivers for different lapping. While Chief Test Driver Toshio Suzuki operates in the 7:30-7:40 range, his right-hand man is a 7:40-7:50 man. It's amazing how much the "Ring vernacular" has entered the Japanese psyche.

proves drivers make a differnce..
I been getting conflicting times on all sites even autoweeks. Now IM reading that the zonda did it in 7:27...
amazing how a driver can vary the times so much. You therefore cannot use the nurberg ring then to justify a car being faster then another unless the times are significantly greater.

reguardless it met its goal of beating the 911 turbo

2007 Tokyo Auto Show: 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec V

It's official, there will be a 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec V and it will be sold in America. A Nissan source has confirmed that a lightweight, more powerful version of the new supercar is nearly complete and will arrive in America about a year after the GT-R hits U.S. dealers early next summer. -- Scott Oldham, Inside Line Editor in Chief

The regular GTR won't even be out until next year.

is this faster than the new m3 ?
for sure man, M5 is like 40 secs slower around the Ring.
Before the only Japanese cars to go under 1 min were NSX-R and GT-R R34 I think, but even they were in high 7:50 range
