We imagine that Nissan engineers have passports emfilled/em with German point-of-entry stamps. However, they#39;ve likely only spent time in one specific area: the village of Nürburg, Germany.brbrWith the a href="http://www.autoblog.com/model/gtr"GT-R/a now producing an extra 45 horsepower for model year 2012, Nissan went back to the Nürburgring last October with it#39;s updated super coupe to see how much time it could shave off the old car#39;s best lap - a blistering 7m 26.7s. The result? With a new lap time of 7:24.22, how does a hair quicker than the a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/maserati+mc12"Maserati MC12/a sound?brbrThat time doesn't just place the 2012 Nissan GT-R ahead of the Maserati. Other cars with slower times include the a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/pagani+zonda"Pagani Zonda F Clubsport/a, a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/ferrari+enzo"Ferrari Enzo/a, a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/porsche+carrera+gt"Porsche Carrera GT/a and a host of other expensive, hard-to-pronounce exotic machines, at least a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%BCrburgring_lap_times"according to Wikipedia/a. Since there is no official governing body that records Nürburgring lap times for production cars, it#39;s hard to say which ones really do have the lowest lap times. From what we can tell, the a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2008/08/27/unofficial-dodge-viper-acr-laps-ring-in-record-7-22-1-w-video/"Dodge Viper ACR/a and a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2008/10/28/corvette-zr-1-knocks-four-seconds-off-ring-time/"Chevrolet Corvette ZR1/a are still quicker than the 2012 GT-R.brbra href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/03/24/video-2012-nissan-gt-r-shaving-2-48-seconds-off-ring-time/#continued"Follow the jump/a to watch the run for yourself, which we just found on YouTube for the first time today, but note that the driving action begins around the 3:09 mark.brbr[Source: a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK62yyQ33_U"Youtube/a via a href="http://www.motorauthority.com/blog/1057292_video-2012-nissan-gt-r-posts-7m-24-22s-nurburgring-lap-time?utm_source=twitterfeedamp;utm_medium=twittera mp;utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MotorAuthority2+%28MotorAu thority%29"Motor Authority/a]pa href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/03/24/video-2012-nissan-gt-r-shaving-2-48-seconds-off-ring-time/" rel="bookmark"Continue reading emVideo: 2012 Nissan GT-R shaving 2.48 seconds off 'Ring time/em/a/pp style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both"a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/03/24/video-2012-nissan-gt-r-shaving-2-48-seconds-off-ring-time/"Video: 2012 Nissan GT-R shaving 2.48 seconds off 'Ring time/a originally appeared on a href="http://www.autoblog.com"Autoblog/a on Thu, 24 Mar 2011 12:58:00 EST.
