sorry but i think this test was made from the first moment to beat the nissan. Cause you cant compare two cars with such a difference in power.
Its like Im comparing my C-Class with a Lambo(extrem example).

yeah...but put the corvette thru some turns...and you will see where it actually is beside the gt-r. corvette is great in drag...but in a circuit loses by a mile to the gt-r.

i wouldnt say that either kaneg, cause they tested it in a circuit and the corvette won. i just think this test is lame because they chose a weaker car to let the corvette win easier.

7:26.4 Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1 (2009) in dry conditions.

on top gear, the nissan is 7 seconds faster than the corvette :x <3.TRUST THE STIG!! :* :D

the video is is likely to go in favor of the corvette

7:26.70 Nissan GT-R (2009)
7:29.03 Nissan GT-R (2009)
Wow look the (2011) Gt-r was faster but as shown in the video the 2009 Corvette was faster. Even after 2 tries for the (2009)Gt-r.

So the nissan accoridin to there dyno is only 74hp off the rated while the vette is 133hp shy of its rated .... Least they did not lie about that one !

American tv shows can say what they want they always do , even there news shows frequently have complete shit as factual content !

are u kidding me...GT-R is the Best..Wikipedia Nürburgring(the most challenging race track...i agree with 6 and 10...Try to beat that with 400+ BHP.

I would sooner be in the GTR if it was a proper race. The vette is good off the line but handles like a brick on a rope. Also agree with #1, you cant really compare such a difference in power based mostly on acceleration.

#1 ... and with a starting price difference of about 26,160.00, pick your favorite GT-R upgrade package ftw!

I dont agree with how this was put together either... Obviously they favor the Corvette. but if you want to talk shit about the corvette take a look at the 2010 season GT2 class racing then try to down talk it.

#6 You probably do not know it but the 2011 GT-R ($95,000+) is way different from the one in this vid.The suspension is modified and the NEW engine is now at 530 HP. And yet the older ZR1 still has a faster time, 7:22.4 ,when driven by a good driver,Jan Magnussen.......

The ZR1 is only running 10 lbs of boost and is on 91 octane pump gas. You would think an AWD Supercar would be waaaay faster than a RWD car,but lap times don't lie.
Here is a dyno run for a stock 2009 ZR1 with only 1000 miles on it. It falls more in line with what most ZR1's put out.

At 3,814lbs the GT-R has the curb weight some 490lbs heavier than the 3,324lb ZR1.
The GT-R has a slightly longer wheelbase and a narrower track width in both the front and rear compared to the ZR1. It’s taller as well. So flat cornering can not compare to the lower and wider Corvette.

#11 You are right about some news reports being factually wrong. I saw a news report last night that said some Irishmen aren't drunken sots, but I do not believe that crap! :D No offense,I mean that in the nicest way.

It's so easy to <3 the Skyline!
Corvette is a drag race car... not for those who like curves & g-force adrenaline

Dyno probably measured BHP at the wheels.
Manufacturer figures are BHP at the flywheel...
So all the cars will be down on power at the wheels.
Cool cars, bad reviewing!

I think the GT-R can easily produce over 1 lateral G...
I don't think it would lose the slalom either.

#22 Numerous skid pad tests have been done on the GT-R by different groups and .96 is the best to date. THINKING something does not make it so.
This test could not be any more fair so maybe all should just watch topgear where those pompous twats are extremely biased and prejudiced. I can not stand to watch those guys.
Here is a link to the ultimate Lambo supercar vs the ZR1 and the ZR1 still looks pretty good.
