Video: Nissan GTR vs Pagani Zonda @ Nurburgring

November 6, 2007 Comments off

Side by side comparison of the Nissan GTR’s 7.38 time attack of Germany’s Nurburgring.

Although poorly composed and in low quality you can see how quick the GTR is. The Pagani finishes in the 7.27 region but goes to show that other manufacturers are using the same start/stop points for timing around the ‘ring.

I saved these a couple of weeks back and thought they may come in useful. Can’t seem to find them on Nissan’s site any more.

Several super high resolution (5100×3300) pics to spruce up your desktop.

Update: Return of the blog

Comments off has returned from the dark. Due to unforseen difficulties I have moved to a new web host to continue this blog. Poor timing I know with the release of the GTR but it cannot be helped.

It has been a frantic few weeks with the GTR’s release, the Tokyo Motor Show, the unveiling of the Nismo Super GT GTR car.

Now let’s get back to the blog.
