Like we said, things aren't simple, as a video of the refreshed GT-R lapping the Nurburgring has surfaced, showing a time of 7 minutes and 21 seconds. This caused Wikipedia and Fastestlaps.com to place Godzilla at number ten on their 'Ring boards.
According to The Truth About Cars, the video was shot with the car wearing a set of Dunlop Zero Pressure runflat tires. However, we don't know if the video, which obviously shows a time that would disappoint, actually has anything to do with an official Nissan lap, or is just a test lap.
The aforementioned source contacted Nissan to ask about this, with company spokesman Nobukazu Tanaka denying the time.
"In October there have been GT-R test runs on the Nürburgring, as part of the many tests for the final trial of the 2012 model year GT-R. We have no official announcement of a time trial or the results of the test run at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Video scenes which had been taken on the circuit had been broadcasted through consumer generated media," the spokesman said.
As you know, Nissan is serious about its 'Ring activity and we'll definitely see the company release an official video soon.
