2010 Nissan GT-R Tested In Dubai | new car review

Posted on Jul 6, 2009 by

Dubai – Nissan’s GT-R was one of the most hyped car this year and soon after the came out of the production run, the NISMO guys took it to Germany’s famed  Nurburgring to show the actual pedigree of it. And the GT-R a.k.a ‘Godzilla’ did prove its point with a blistering lap time of 7 minutes and 29 seconds. General Motors (GM) did not waste much time and stuck back with their Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. The record setting lap that took place on June 27th saw the supercharged ZR1 edge itself  seconds ahead of the lap time of the GT-R at the Nürburgring. It completed a lap of the circuit in 7 minutes and 26 seconds. Jim Mero was the pilot on that lap, running a omplete stock Corvette ZR1.

According to a recent release issued here by General Motors Middle East, the Corvette ZR1’s officially rated top speed is 330 km/h, making it the fastest Corvette ever  produced. The Corvette ZR1’s 0-100 performance of 3.4 seconds is 0.3-second quicker than the Corvette Z06 and the 0-160-kph performance is nearly a full second quicker  – 7 seconds vs. the Z06’s 7.9 seconds. The ZR1 is powered by a new LS9 6.2L  supercharged small-block engine that is hand-assembled at GM’s Performance Build Center, in Wixom, Mich.
