Nissan’s GT-R made a run in 2009 against the ZR1 on the world famous Nordschleife and they came within .3 of a second of the Corvette’s 7:26.4 lap. Two years later, the newly upgraded 2012 GT-R goes at it again, this time besting the Corvette by two seconds with a 7:24.22 lap. Check out the laps after the jump.
Here is a split-screen race between the 2009 Corvette ZR1 and the 2012 Nissan GT-R. Although not on the track at the same time, some enterprising fellas spliced the two videos of each car’s high-speed lap into one. FYI, Godzilla really starts to dig in around the 5:30 mark.
