We compare the Nissan GTR against the Porsche turbo at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Pagani Zonda R - Nurburgring lap
Pagani - Pirelli Tyre - Assuring new technologies and materials are fit for
production means also putting the vehicle's components under severe
stresses, exceeding those normally encountered in every day road driving.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most demanding track in the world, for
man and machine, an ordeal that each Pagani has to pass, only one of many
in the entire development phase.
The Zonda R serves as the ultimate test bench, a car able to reach
acceleration figures and speeds that are not possible with a road car.
This is further underlined by a laptime of 6:47,5 min for the 20,832 km
Nordschleife. Driver: Marc Basseng
EVO and GTR at the Nurburgring
GTR owner came over afterwards and was very enthusiastic :-) Apparently
running around 550bhp, but I couldn't pass him on the straight after
ex-muhle! In the end he let me past as I was a bit quicker through the
corners and I think he said his tyres got a bit hot.
Sebastian Vettel driving GT5 RedbullX1 prototype at Nürburgring GP Course
Find more GT5 videos on http://gtchannel.com. In a world where modern
professional racing is restricted by regulations, the X1 is a machine born
from a fantastic "what if" dream of Gran Turismo: "What would the fastest
racing car on Earth, free of any and all regulations, look like?" And the
only way to experience it is in Gran Turismo 5. Initially the X1 Prototype
was a single-seater canopied prototype wing car with covered front wheels.
Powered by a 1500ps direct-injection V6 Twin turbo, on paper the performance would have been
spectacular, producing a top speed of 400km/h (248.6mp/h) and a maximum
lateral acceleration of 6G. But once Red Bull Racing was brought on board
to be a partner, the X1 really took off. Adrian Newey, master aerodynamic
engineer and Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer, suggested "Fan Car"
technology, a long-held dream of his, be added to the design of the X1
Prototype. A "fan car" is a vehicle having a fan mechanism which forces the
air out from underneath the car to reduce air pressure under the car's
floor. The resulting suction draws the car to the ground surface and
creates a massive amount of downforce. And because it can create downforce
regardless of the vehicle's current speed, it dramatically raises it's
cornering speed capability even in low speed corners. Thanks to the insight
of Mr. Newey, the X1 Prototype design was transformed. A large fan was
added to the rear end of the body to implement the Fan Car technology.
Plus, Newey provided additional input into the the design of the front and
rear wings and rear diffuser, dramatically refining the vehicle's
aerodynamics. As a result, the virtual X1 Prototype was able to achieve an
astonishing level of performance. Its new top speed was 450km/h
(279.6mp/h), with a maximum lateral acceleration reaching up to 8.75G,
pushing the vehicle to the very limits of what a normal human body can
