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.

So, Nissan will produce a new model for this one just to prove that an original version is better than the modified ones?

Isn’t it about the same? Nissan is just trying to outdo a lot of other brands without saying that they need tuning.

I’m skeptical about this, to be honest. Oh well, let’s see what Nissan has in mind.

I don’t want to burst Nissan’s bubble, but I’d like to say that this upcoming car will be a tuned version too. Only it’s in a different form, so it can be said that it is original.

That’s a nice idea, but how could they possibly win over tuned versions of the cars? I bet they’re planning to bring out a fresher innovation which is just prompted to outdo their own.
