@fastestlaps: The Z06 with Z07 package is just as quick and even quicker on some tracks than the gt-r. It also costs the same. They are both the current performance bargain cars.

Mike B don't be an idiot. The GTR is leagues faster than the scuderia and GT2. Compare it with the GT2RS and 458 italia.

@Derb: that comment speaks volumes about you yet nothing of the facts. The old GT-R had trouble with the GT2 since it lacked 45hp and was heavier. This one matches the GT2's power and in anything but a straight line the GT-R beats the GT2 for performance/speed...

wihtout any doubt
the gt2 is faster than the gt-r

I don't believe this car would become a benchmark (price/performance yes)

it's performance is about the same as the new Z06 (with ZR1 bits), and the 997.2 Turbo/Turbo S

it's not a supercar killer anymore, in fact, I doubt it is faster than the 430 Scuderia or the 997 GT2.

@FL i know that but he's the one who tested it saying it's always sideways and mad and blah blah blah
when stig drove it, it didn't go sideways even once...the R8 v10 did
i know that somebody in the crew said: lets wait for the track to dry then test the GTR and that same person didn't care for the vette...not acceptable for the world's most popular car show
@mykem: they are usually the same day(when they test it on the track, not the road)
but sometimes they care to wait sometimes they don't
well cars get credit for being fast round such a well known track so it shouldn't be just for fun

@ vette

I don't think the review segment of TG and power lap are done on the same day. Sometimes you can see even the cars aren't the same colours when they're reviewed and power lapped.

It's unfortunate that some cars got damp or wet track but this is never meant to be definitive. It's just for fun (yes, do look it up in the dictionary).

the fat tall idiot is not setting lap times :)

GTR is the performance bargain benchmark. I am sure it will be faster than the new McLaren in most tracks.

this is ridiculous
they wait for the track to dry out for the GTR so it gets a 1:17
now couldn't they have waited for the ZR1 too?! did they have to test it in damp?! why? because the fat tall idiot can't drive a corvette right! so he thinks its not good
