The prototype Nissan GT-R V-Spec, wearing the "Victory Specification" designation reserved for the ultra high-performance Nissan GT-R, has been caught lapping the famed Nürburgring at an incredible, if not simply unbelievable, 7:25 per lap. This, according to bystanders trackside. (For comparison, Walter Röhrl lapped the Ring in 7:28 while driving a Porsche Carrera GT in 2004.)
Thoughts? I mean, that is pretty **** impressive if you ask me BUT I have a small criticism.
If you look into the car, and reviews you notice that the car itself is almost automated, which IMO will simply take away from the driving experience. Maybe most people don't care to "drive" their own cars when on a track or racing but if it was me, i'd prefer to be in control of it. I hope you guys understand what I'm trying to say. Basically, i think that if the Corvette Z06(not ZR1) had all the electronics like launch control and all that bells and whistles the GT-R V-Spec comes with then it wouldn't have much of a problem with doing the same thing this thing is doing.
What's going on here, it's like cars manufactueres are making cars to require a less skilled driver to achieve certain great laptimes, or quater mile times. I'm not saying technology is a bad thing but sooner or later it seems that the difference in a lap time is how quick you can press the gas pedal.
To clarify, I'm not saying that it doesn't take skill to drive that GT-R V-Spec to get those lap times, I know I surely wouldn't be able to get behind the car right now and do that I'm just saying that all the bells and whistles in THIS car just seems to automated.
Anyone get what I'm saying, lol, I feel like I'm not making to much sense right now and I think it might have to do with not having breakfeast OR lunch yet.
