Based on some initial tests, the soon-to-be released GT-R from Nissan was considered as among the fastest ever productions cars at the Ring. That feat was announced by Nissan last month after the supercar has achieved 7 minutes and 29 seconds at the Nurburgring in Germany. This strip is also known as the Ring. The feat by Nissan GT-R was achieved last April 16 and 17. The GT-R used for testing was a base specification car and then fitted with the standard Japanese market tyres. The test drive was initiated by chief test driver Tochio Suzuki. The lap time netted by the new GT-R easily edged out the previous fastest time for the GT-R by nine seconds. The previous lap time was also made possible by Suzuki.
The all-new GT-R has been delivered in Japan that started in December 2007. Sales in other countries like in US and Canada start in July and will extend to Europe and other markets in the span of 12 months.
