Nissan GTR vs Lotus Exige S1

--- --- Suivez mon blog !!! On this video I use CMS Laptimer, a free iPhone app, in my opinion the best free one. But now I use Harry's Lap Timer Pro. It has a cost, but much more powerful. One of the early sessions in Montmélo, on the 31st October 2011. We were still discovering the track, hence pretty slow laps on this video. Having fun with a mighty Nissan GTR of unknown specs I have to say. But boy, it goes... The acceleration is massive. My healthy Duratec Exige S1, cannot fight in the straight. I topped 235 (around) on the speedo, where the GTR was over 260 !!! The car was really impressive and could turn as well, surprisingly well. I was able to get back though. Real trouble on that day for the GTR was heat, with tires and gearbox heating up too fast, from what I understood. My Exige stood up pretty well, so I am happy. Circuit de Catalunya is the fastest track I ever drove on, even a little faster in the straight than SPA !

2013 Lotus Exige V6 Cup vs 2012 Nissan GTR - Silverstone GP.
On a dry track this time. An interesting comparison between two very different approaches to achieve a similar result. Don't look for continuity, there isn't any! It was all taken from the same camera so at different times of the day. I was driving the GTR, plus the Exige for all the in-car shots. As I was driving the GTR I know that it was flat-out in race mode down the Hangar Straight so the difference between the two cars in a straight line is what you can see in the video - there's not much in it. Not bad going for a 345bhp car to match a 550bhp monster! Best comparison for straight line speed is at 3 minutes down the Hangar straight. You're seeing roughly 60 mph through to a little over 130 mph. The GTR is standard.
