The Nurburgring

CAR Magazine digital preview


The new July 2009 issue of CAR Magazine celebrates the legend that is the Nurburgring. The Nordschleife circuit in Germany’s Eifel Mountains has achieved legendary status in the minds of car enthusiasts around the globe. Blame its long history, the formidable races it’s hosted, its public toll road status and manufacturers’ fixation with developing prototypes there. But most of all, blame its devilish 12.7-mile layout that has foxed drivers – professional and amateur – ever since launch in 1927.

In the new issue of CAR Magazine, we’ve taken two titans of the Ring – the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R – to find out once and for all which is faster, after last year’s public spat between the two firms over disputed laptimes. We thought we’d better take the latest Spec V and GT3, and an independent Ring racing driver, to Germany to find out.

Here we present the cars, videos, blogs and downloads to give you Ringside seats for our Nurburgring adventure.
