Following yesterday's spy photos of the Nissan GT-R Nismo at the Nürburgring, we've been informed that some intrepid spies have captured video of Super Godzilla lapping the track. We aren't sure which turn the first clip is showing, but the second and third are almost certainly the tough right-hander known as Bergwerk.

Like the current GT-R, the Nismo, even with what might be a new exhaust system, isn't a vehicle that sounds particularly good in a flyby. It's more of just an intense whooshing noise. Take a look at the full video from RSR Nürburgring down below.

      ive been in love with the gtr since day one. the performance that it came with blew the competition(without smoking any tires). happy to see new improvements, better performance and honda can only dream for the new nsx to be as successful as the godzilla (NSXs are awesome) nissan created a great car in every way and if i had 100k for a new car, gtr would be the one with cash left over for some tuning. sorry vette your just not my type.....

      Hundreds of laps and a computer driven car tuned for this specific track and it still can't beat a raw/crude Viper ACR. I am seriously so sick of this car. We've brought some out racing with us and they get boring very fast. Zero driver input. Perfect car for the bench racer with absolutely no driving skills.

        By your questionable logic, you should be able to sit in the passenger seat of a GT-R at the 'ring and the car should be able to run 7:25 laps all day long with no one behind the wheel. Personally, I'd love to see what a 600 HP GT-R with an enormous wing and Michelin Pilot Sport Cups would do on the ring.

      Maybe the Japs should put their efforts into fixing the goddam radioactive leaks at Fukushima instead.

        Perhaps the americans should focus on rebuilding katrina destroyed areas first before getting into anything else. Is it so difficult for you to understand that Nissan is in the business of making cars and not engineering nuclear reactors and nuclear powerplants? Also, who are the idiots who modded the parent post up?

      According to my calculations, it's mathematically impossible for the GT-R to go under 7:19 at the ring Let's say the average driver weighs 98lbs and is a green leprechaun with a four leaf clover in his hat. You would need 924hp squared and race slicks from an NHRA drag car. Not the type of rubber mind you, but actual 36"x14" drag tires on all four corners. You then would have to get more average torque to the tires, than the crankshaft. The limit to the mathematical equation that allows this is Elon Musk's super vacuum train. Unless Nissan engineers have come up with a clever way for the GT-R to drive in a reverse vacuum through time and space, the GT-R would hit a theoretical wall at 7:19. The only reason they got 7:18 the last time around was an actual tailwind made of space dust. The magical properties of space dust were in play at just the right moment. This in synchronization of the Large Hadron Collider at that very moment creating a quark-gluon particle, that created it's own gravity field large enough that the GT-R's own gravity was lessened on the Nurburgring. To demonstrate, Einstein said E=MC2. He knew a lot of stuff about a lot of stuff. It was said that Nikola Tesla was a genius, but Thomas Edison was a bigger a**hole and won. So in conclusion it would take Einstein and Tesla piloting the GT-R with Miley Cyrus levels of Hennessey Cognac in their systems and the invention of air clouds lighter and stronger than carbon fiber. So you see the GT-R getting a ring time of under 7:19 is mathematically, categorically and ostensibly debunked.

        tell that to williams engineering who is the chief engineer for the areo dynamics, who said the GTR have more room for improvement.

      Wow! What a wonderful feeling it must be to drive a true sports car like this on a well maintained private track road surface. I wish I could say the same of the condition of our broken up roads with the constant punishment of uneven expansion joints, potholes and cracks where you are bound to feel every jolt, not just on your body but on your wallet. After all, the road surface is half the formula. By experience … if the roads don’t work, the formula will be off.

        FWIW, the ring isn't a private track, it is a public toll road.

      The first clip shows it going into the subtle left sweeper, after the flatout section beyond the bridge, which goes into a subtle downhill right sweeper before the right hand 180 curve before the Karussell. I don't know the names of the corners offhand, but just thought I'd let you guys know.
