Then, came the all-new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, and it embarrassed the GT-R with a lot fast 'Ring time of 7:26.4. Nissan heated-up the battle now, and came up with the revised 2010 GT-R (gets 5 hp more, re-tuned suspension, and improved brakes). Which now, Nissan's Chief test driver, Toshio Suzuki, took the 2010 GT-R for a new official lap time, around the 'Ring.
With Mr.Suzuki in-control of this GT-R "Godzilla", that now got a faster Nurbugring lap time of 7:26.70. That makes the $100,000 ZR1 only 0.3 seconds faster! Nonetheless, old rumors that GM took the ZR1 on a secret 'Ring lap time, and posted 7:22.4. Though still, Dodge Viper ACR's 7:22.1 official 'Ring time is still by far, the fastest ever! In GT-R's defence, it still owns the fastest time on Jebel Hafeet, Abu Dahbi roadcourse.
Anyways, the 7:26.70 GT-R Nurburgring lap time can be watched below.
