There’s no business like snow business

Some people have all the fun. And driving a Nissan GT-R around a snow covered Nordschleife sure looks like fun. This really is a thousand miles away from my world at the moment, here in Australia the temps are hovering around 35°C. Ironically, this clip runs for almost the exact time of the GT-R’s famed […]

Nissan GT-R Spec V official video

Details of Nissan’s GT-R Spec V were released today (see AUSmotive for full story). Along with that announcement comes this video showing the Spec V in full flight around the Ring. No mention of lap times though. While some details have been confirmed, nothing official has been mentioned on increased power figures. The modifications made […]

Nissan GT-R V-Spec just around the corner?

// Posted in Nissan

Nissan’s Nordschleife-busting R35 GT-R is about to get better. The upcoming V-Spec has been confirmed by Nissan and speculation suggests February 2009 for an official release, although nothing has been officially announced.

Porsche and Nissan trade off-track insults over that lap time

A few days ago a Porsche official made the extraordinary public claim that Nissan cheated when setting the GT-R’s amazing lap of 7 minute 29 seconds around the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Well, this is the third clip I’ve posted showing the Nissan GT-R’s 7:29 Nürburgring Nordschleife lap, but it is definitely the best.

Official Nissan video: GT-R laps Nürburgring in 7:29

Here is a much cleaner clip of Nissan’s official footage of the much hyped R35 GT-R lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7 minutes, 29 seconds. It was initially claimed this car was showroom stock, but, apparently the car used in this lap has had some ‘minor tweaks’ for the Japanese market. It is expected these […]

Nissan GT-R 7:29 Nürburgring video

Just discovered on YouTube is this clip of the R35 Nissan GT-R completing its famed 7 minute 29 second lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It’s a bit of an odd clip, in that it is filmed footage displayed on another monitor, so the quality is not high, especially the audio. I’ll try and scout around […]
