2010 Nissan GT-R - 2010 GT-R Flexes Muscle at Nürburgring

Spinout

Aug 1, 2009

Nissan returned to the storied German race course to test out the seemingly minor upgrades to the 2010 edition of its potent and affordable GT-R supercar. On paper the GT-R’s five additional horsepower, revised transmission programming, and updated suspension don’t come off as hard hitters.

Nevertheless Nissan’s efforts proved worthy as a bone stock 2010 shod with Spec-V rolling stock posted an impressive time of 7:27.56, besting the previous record by about 1.4 seconds.

The Nürburgring has become bragging rights central and the GT-R’s latest antics put it ahead of its benchmark the Porsche 911 GT2 but still a tick shy the Corvette ZR1 at 7:26.4.
