Spec V - 7:20 at Nurburgring ?

The rumors are that the Spec V Nissan R35 GT-R will be able to turn a lap time under 7:20 seconds at the Nurburgring. No matter what it actually turns, every Porsche guy, Corvette guy,and Viper guy will deny it. The Spec V will be a tube frame race car on slicks, piloted by aliens, with a gas turbine under the hood. I heard that the Spec V official Nurburgring lap times were not going to be released. Rather Nissan was going back to the ring with their updated 2009(2010MY US) GT-R. Best Motoring tested the 2008(2009MY US) GT-R vs the 2009 GT-R and found it to be about 5 km/hr faster though corners.

Nissan says for the performance of the Spec V compared to its European rivals, the car is still a relative bargain.

The whiteboard is used to show Porsche and Ferrari Nurburgring lap times and prices. 7:50 for the 911 . 7:43 for the 911 . 7:32 for the GT2. The Spec V has 80 seconds of overboost,carbon brakes, 132 lbs lighter , and a titanium exhaust.
