NEW TARGET FOR THE GT-R

NEW UPDATE:

New GT-R now sets its sight on the times of the Carrera GT The 991 TT is no longer its target, having being surpassed by a wide margin. Reports have the GT-R running lower than a 7:35.
This is not far off from the 7:28 of the Carrera GT. There were wet patches on the track on the GT-Rs last run. They will attempt another assault at the record:

OMG, but anyway I need this number official confermation or else I'll take this info as a grain of salt











Partly interior revealed





The shape looks much more clear now even though the black cover is there, revealing something?

This shapes to be a good car non the less, love it






Stop clocks, could this mean 7:35 as the article said?

Holy jesus, these tires are nowhere near road legal.
they look like designer tires from the motor show.
And wow, that car looks fat and agressive. I like it a lot.

I could post the latest list of the "sport auto" Supertest.
A very complex testing on a high professional level.

Or you look here:

Sport-Auto Tuning + Zubehör Supertest-Liste ist online

* means updated

You know we drive the other side of the road...and he didn't realise it then.


@ bonzelite: if you call that being laughed at, do a search for sixspeed's threads
I was reading it as a friendly discussion with different opinions. Quite common on such boards don't you think so?

What?

Look at the tread on the front tire:



Then look at the tread on this product picture:



The tires appear to be DOT street legal , and 'soon to be' Original Equipment Potenza RE070 that will be fitted on the car at the dealer...

When the issue of "tires this, tires that" is pulled out, it indicates an insecurity and denial in the one raising the issue. The GT-R must somehow, in some manner, always be denied or dismissed. It just can not be so that the GT-R is for real.

The GT-R will absolutely destroy the 997tt with or without designer tires.

Same tyres as sed on the Honda NSX-R and GDB Impreza WRX STi, albeit not RF. Compound might be different but exactly makes these not road legal? Have you seen the tyres Porsche GT3's and BMW M3 CSL's run?

Right Dino, some of them can't be used to drive in the wet.
All I was saying is that the tread looks strange in the picture. Like tyres look at motor shows.
And bonzelite... who's saying I'm denieing the GTR??? Just the tyres look strange to me.
Man you act like you designed the GTR...calm down man.

Sorry, I've just heard the tires bit so many times now as an instrument of avoidance. I will err on the side of I jumped the gun about your post and took it too far. I've taken several sleeping pills and had a few shots of whiskey. So I am chill now.

Doesn't anyone find it odd that the car has performed countless beauty parades on the ring but, unlike every other manufacturer, there has not been any confirmed times to cement the rumour mill?

nissan is timing it but they're not ready to release times yet. so, even if they did turn it over to someone else to independently test, that other party wouldn't be allowed to discuss it.

as far as others timing it goes, sure people have stopwatches.. that's where we got word of a 7'38 time from.
