Well that thread is actually of the 2012 GT-R. Not 2011(which is the current one). Mods can merge the two threads and edit the title as well.

Zohaib - but the engine specs are different in that thread

523 horsepower and 451 pound-feet of torque – an increase from the outgoing model's 485 hp and 434 lb-ft.

The 2012 GT-R beats the current model's track time of 7 minutes 26.7 seconds by almost 2.5 seconds. It does it in 7 minutes and 24.22 seconds!!

Here's the video if anyone's interested:
