Nissan is headed to the 2012 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance race and they’re bringing Godzilla along to join in on all the fun.
That’s right; the Japanese automaker will be fielding a Nissan GT-R Club Track Edition to compete in the 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance race. According to Nissan, the standard production GT-R Club Track Edition is going to Nurburgring for a number of reasons, chief of which is their desire to collect much-needed data and information on how to help improve Godzilla’s overall mechanics in the coming years.
In a field of heavily modded vehicles, the idea that Nissan will bring a fresh GT-R with no performance enhancements to compete against those guys raises more than just one curious eyebrow from us. But hey, we’re not about to disagree with them on this matter. So in that vein, allow us to direct you to this video Nissan has prepared as they make preparations for the street-ready GT-R to race one of the most grueling endurance races in the world.
