When the Japanese automaker Nissan announced that they had broken their previous lap record at the ’Ring, the German sports carmaker Porsche wasn’t very happy about it and demanded proof. So here it is the run made on April 23rd earlier this year. What’s interesting is that Nissan’s test driver, Toshio Suzuki, barely needs to use the GT-R’s top gear. It looks like the Nissan engineers sized Godzilla’s fifth cog to make the super car run right under redline and in the VR38DETT’s sweet spot around the Nordschleif circuit.

Next move, Porsche.

Wow it’s faster than a Porsche Panamera in that track. The Panamera did the tract for 7 minutes and 56 seconds. That’s a good 30 seconds difference between those two cars. Godzilla performed really well.
