My business partner who has many track records in SA owned 4 GTR's between 2011 and 2017 and the 458 In 2015. The latest 419kw GTR was the slowest by far because making it easier to live with (read softer) has made it much slower than the previous models.
All these cars, bar the MY16 GTR did lap times between 1:19,5 and 1:19,9 around Killareney race track in Cape Town where we live.
The 458 was slightly slower on standard rubber but a half second faster on Trofeo R doing a 1:19,1
But typically, the Japanese fabourite at Tsukuba comes out on top, albeit slower around every other track and every other publication and every other GTR produced.
For the record, at Killarney the R8 V10 also did a 1:19,5 and the only cars that ever went faster were McLarens, the MP4-12C, 570 and 650S.
Ken's lap in the Merc GT-R of 1:18,6 will be published soon, although that was done with a passenger.

This is academic as the NSX has gone nearly a second faster than this at Tsukuba.

it's a joke that both Japanese cars are using extrem tyres while the others are using P zeros

Between thw newest times, Or old times that need editing, Id say a good amount needs to be done, Theres thousands of cars here and its not easy correcting them, But even some stand out, And certain questionable laptimes of cars like the Huracan n Huayra, It's just MO but I don't think bikes should even be here, Like u said it basically just you that's adding them, Nobody really even chats about them, Hey its your site so I'll be here regardless, Even though I'm here eryday lol

Watching this makes me miss BM even more... There are so many new cars that we never had the chance to see race each other on track, or even do Tsukuba time attack.

I wouldnt say destroyed, But Yeah i was thinking that too, I certainly dont trust Best Motoring, Or anything like the bunch at all, Like i know this is a small track, But its mostly other things. But either way i don trust them.

However, At the same time, The laptime difference is so small, .2s that i think it could actually be legit, It is the newer model, So on a smaller track it may even be faster then the old, Even on some its not, And on smaller technical tracks GTRs shine,(Doubt it but who knows) So normally id call Bs on certain things.

But at the same time the same thing could be said about the Turbo and its German counterparts....On another note the Nismo on the same day did a 1:01.533...Slower, But it was also battling on the same track and time the new Nsx.

Is there a track elsewhere in the world, where a post-2016 GT-R (Nismo or stock) ever destroyed the 991 Turbo S? I don't think so. It only happens in Japan... :D

P.S.: Please no Nordschleife-bullshit-laptimes.

"(Nismo?)" - I would guess this is the GT-R track edition that was just released recently.

You would think it's a Nismo to beat those other cars.
