As we continue our month-long look at the Nissan GT-R®, we next wanted to take a look at the genesis of the current generation from 2008 to today. Nissan has put together a fantastic video that covers the evolution of the GT-R® and the improvements that the company realized in each successive model year. The barometer for performance improvement was none other than lap time at the 13-mile Nürburgring track in Germany, a playground and source of bragging rights for many manufacturers. Each year Nissan was able to reduce the GT-Rs® lap times by multiple seconds, which is no small feat. The latest recorded lap time of the GT-R® clocks in at 7:24.22, putting it ahead of hypercars such as the Maserati MC12 and the Ferrari Enzo.
But enough rambling from us – click here to watch the video for yourself, and don’t forget to head over to the eBay Garage and sign up for your chance to win a GT-R® of your very own (as well as daily drawings for $50 eBay gift cards) in our eBay Motors Nissan GT-R® Fantasy Car Sweepstakes, running from June 6th to July 4th.
