Check out our original post on the 2014 Nissan GT-R.

In an interview with The Truth About Cars,Nissan GT-R’s Chief Engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno, said that the updated GT-R can lap the famous German track in 7 minutes and 18 seconds, which is a whole (and exciting) 8 seconds faster that the 7:26:70 record time from 2009.

Mizuno went as far as to say that the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 can lap the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes but he would rather use the standard production model since that’s the model that customers buy.
