Nissan GT-R on Top Gear 1:17.8

Over the last several years, one of the yardsticks of supercar performance has been its lap time at the Top Gear test track.  The 2009 Nissan GT-R was tested there by the program several years ago and managed a 1:19.0 time, putting it ahead of lots of much more exotic machinery.  This time they take a 2012 (2011 MY everywhere else) GT-R and put it on the track.  Click though for the video.

Eighth overall out of all the cars they have tested.  Everything quicker is very exotic, and very unique.

Did you see the Fifth gear video of DBA vs. 997 Turbo S? That was so fun to watch, they are dead even, both acceleration and track times!

I think I posted it, but I don't really remember it. The 997 Turbo S is the fast and expensive one.
