It looks like the Nissan -Porsche war is far from being over. Just yesterday, Porsche announced that their upcoming 918 Spyder supercar had lapped the Nurburgring in an amazing 7:14 , and today, Nissan is coming out with their own lap time. The fastest, official Nurburgring lap time of the current Nissan GT-R was 7:24, but it looks like the 2013 GT-R is working with something even better, scoring a Nurburgring lap time of 7:16!
No official details on the time have been released just yet, but according to Bridge to Gantry, a 2013 GT-R with Nismo lightweight wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes (yes, like those seen on the Track Pack) was testing at the Green Hell. The best part is that Toshio Suzuki, the record-breaking test driver of Nissan, was behind the wheel.
We expect to see an official confirmation of these results soon, as sell as a video of the event. Stay tuned!
