57659nisToday, the NISSAN GT-R, winner of the 2009 World Performance Car of the Year, has improved its lap time at the renowned Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany to 7 min 26 seconds 70 on April 23.

This new time underlines Nissan engineering team’s commitment to constantly challenge the GT-R’s performance.

Previous recorded lap times at the ‘Ring’ were:

  • 7 minutes 27 seconds 56 on April 15, 2009
  • 7 minutes 29 in April 2008
  • 7 minutes 38 in September 2007

This record demonstrates our commitment to the continuous evolution of the Nissan GT-R,” says Kazutoshi Mizuno, Chief Vehicle Engineer and Chief Vehicle Specialist.  “We would like to continue delivering the passion and pride of ownership to our customers by improving its performance every year.”

The Nissan GT-R has won more than a dozen awards globally including Car of the Year from CAR Magazine in the UK, and Car of the Year by both Motor Trend and Automobile Magazine in the US.

While the Nissan GT-R benefits from a strong image and heritage amongst performance car aficionados, the updated 2010 version will be the first to be sold globally. Europe is currently in the process of delivering the first GT-Rs to more than 2,200 pre-order customers.

The model R35 GT-R was first launched in Japan in December 2007, selling 5,900 units until March 2009. It went on sale in the US in July 2008, where 2,100 have been sold so far. Since going on sale in the UK on 9 April 2009, over 1,200 orders have been taken.
