R35 GTR vs Zonda F

Thought I'd play the Zonda's run against the R35 GTR's with two Internet Explorer windows open, and time it so that both runs start at the same time.

Guess what, the GTR would of be been right behind the Zonda until it hits the partially wet areas of the GTR's run, just goes to show how amazing the new GTR really is; against a 600hp car that weighs 500kg less.

Try it youself

Its only on the straights that the F can pull away. I'm really amazed at what this new GTR can really do!

Two different cars aimed at different markets...

If money wasn't a issue, why not have both...

Personally...I think the Zonda F could have had a faster lap time because I went to youtube and saw how the driver was handling the car and at times I felt he was a little nervous and didn't give it his all. The car just didn't seem like it was going fast in my opinion..."Sonzilla GTR" ruined it when he did the comparo. That GT-R is amazingly quick...I can't wait until mods come for it. I still think the front of the GT-R is ugly but its a cool car that I know will have serious potential.

watch how the drivers drive. With the probably exception of Nocolas Kiesa, there isn't a single member of this board who'd lap the Nordschleife faster in the Pagani than the R35, even if we didn't have to worry about crashing and could give it a balls out effort. The skill required to keep the Pagani from flying off the track is evident in constant corrections, versus the R35 which appears more point-and-shoot.

11 seconds on a track is an eternity though.

LOL aahhh come on Andy. You seriously wouldn't take an F or a R35? Think of the re sale value for the car? Think of how many GT-Rs you can buy with that HUGE stack of green

Yeah you are right, the GT-R does seem like a more "point and shoot" as you say it. It is amazing how fast the sense of speed is in the GT-R compared to the Zonda. I was somewhat unimpressed seeing the Zonda after seeing the GT-R lol. Id take a Zonda F over a R35 probably anyday because of rarity and how exclusive it is. Im am surprised the GT-R didn't make a faster time from the compared lap times. But...do you really think, if the GT-R was a manual trans instead of paddle shifters would the time be much slower?

Of course not. You could sell the Zonda F and then buy a GTR and a house.

Was this a Zonda F Clubsport or just a Zonda F?

The thing I love about all skylines is that 'not a classic supercar' shape - thats what puts me off a zonda.

anyhow - cant afford either of them right now lol and fancy something silly like that satin black Rex in the sales section

The GT-R would be a FAR faster car for normal good drivers.

It takes REAL motorsport level skill to drive RWD cars with that power proper fast and stay alive. It was like Clarkson in that blue devil of road legal race car last night. He honestly couldn't control it around the track but the Stig beat the previous fastest time around that track by 7 seconds in it and never looked out of control!

I'm a strong believer in "usable power" and that makes the Evo's, GT-Rs etc of the world very special, Cobras', Koenzzzzdahfsyehdsns, Zondas and the like look and sound amazing but from all accounts from drivers and owners you would be faster in Clio 182 unless you have some serious driving skills.
