2012 Nissan GT-R Breaks Its Own Nurburgring Record

In this video you will be able to see the 2012 Nissan GT-R breaking its old record on the Nurburgring circuit. Although the clip is in Japanese, you can see all the 7 minutes and 24.22 seconds of the car’s track run from inside the cockpit. The time Nissan managed to do is just a little bit behind Porsche’s 911 GT2 RS that completed a lap in 7 minutes and 24 seconds.

As a reminder, the 2012 Nissan GT-R packs a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that produces 530 hp (537 PS / 395 kW) and 488 lb.-ft (661 Nm) of torque. The car can sprint to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3 seconds, but in order to achieve that time, some may have to use the R-Mode Start Function.

The new model managed to beat the 2011’s circuit time of 7 minutes and 26.7 seconds by almost 2.5 seconds, which is quite a lot.
