This lap was done with shitty car mode. Suspension is not in R mode and stability control is switched on. If they did it properly, it'll will be close to AMG GT R's time 100% sure.

The Nurburgring time was with the time attack edition.
The Nurburgring time was set with a manufacture team to get absolute results. That alone is worth 10-15 seconds.
Pretty sure the ZR1 and the 458 time at VIR was set with manufacture team and back up, and while the GTR, no. So it makes the GTR all the more impressive.

Does not impress me one bit these performance numbers, see the Nissan announces Nürburgring in 7:08. This just proves that the car record at the Nürburgring is not the same you will earn the streets. Or Japanese pilots make magic ...

When have GT-R's ever performed as well on other tracks as they do at the 'Ring? That's why every claim is more dubious than the last from Nissan; those incredible times never seem to translate anywhere else.
And before anyone throws a fit about it, I've got nothing against the GT-R. Not hating, just stating.

Not that impressed. Add about 2 sec for comparison to the past VIR times since it was repaved and widened last winter. Not showing the magic of the 7:08 ring time.

It did beat a Mosler, so I'm impressed.

Only half a second faster than a 458 Italia. Little for a car made for circuits.
