If you follow (as you should) Bridge to Gantry.com or read Jalopnik, you will know Nissan have taken over the Nürburgring Nordschleife to run a NISMO GT-R.
The point, clearly, is to set a new record and we are told the time they are shooting for is under 7:10. That would be faster than a Gumpert Apollo and a Viper ACR and would make the NISMO GT-R the fastest non hyper car ever (if that makes sense.)
Getting a time like that is not for anyone and Nissan have secured an ex Formula One driver for the job: Sebastien Buemi.
You know just having a driver named Sebastian is worth a few seconds so look for a record to fall.
