I bet if your were a passenger during that run, the only words you would have to describe the experience would be VIOLENT.

2012 Nissan GT-R MSRP Black Edition is $96100

ZR1 MSRP is $109,000 optioned out.

About $10k difference and it SLAUGHTERS the GTR.

Not to be an American car homer...but...your number on the price tag are off a bit and why does that matter?

What was the fastest ACR time? ACR also had a nice wing on the back that certainly helps when coupled with the weight drops and upgraded suspension.

The ZR1 in this case is completely factory (suspension, weight, etc) with the exception of the rubber.

Watch the 2012 Corvette ZR1 shave six seconds off Nürburgring lap time

Quote:
Check out the view from the driver's seat as the 2012 Corvette ZR1 makes its way around the famed Nürburgring. Corvette engineer Jim Mero recorded a blisteringly fast lap time of 7:19.63 behind the wheel. Let's find out how that stacks up against the competition?
While that eclipses the previous Corvette-best lap set in 2008 by more than six seconds, it still falls over a second short of the 7:18 manufacturer-claimed time set down by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS in April of last year.

it does, however, finally give the ZR1 bragging rights over the Dodge Viper ACR, Porsche 911 GT2 RS (driven by Sport Auto), Nissan GT-R, Maserati MC12, Ferrari Enzo and the Pagani Zonda F Clubsport. Yup, it is still Zee Really fast One.

Also, watching Mero behind the wheel reminds me just how truly terrible I am on the track. If I had an iota of his skill level, I'd be one very happy camper.

Yeah, go down to Tysons Koon's and try to get one for a buck. Now that they have reworked the '12, the supply demand curves are still going to be such that OTD price>MSRP, if not more so. That being said, and since there is not as a great a shortage as there was initially, you may actually find a leftover for around $100k.

No. These are the tires that will come on the car off of the showroom floor.

Still a handful. Look at all the correction he has to throw in mid-corner.
For the money, I'd still take the GT-R.
The Vette at this point has been developed to the max of its performance envelope.
The GT-R still had plenty of performance to be eeked out of it.

If I had the scratch to throw at either, I'd just save my pennies until I could get an R8 then reap the vagina rewards from women who:
1) think it's exotic
2) know it isn't a Nissan
3) know it's not a Chevrolet preferred by 60 year olds living out their childhood dream
