    The Nissan GT-R is faster than Lamborghini Gallardo but slower than the Gallardo Superleggera. The lightweight clubsport Gallardo leaves the GT-R in it's trail... maybe that's why the GT-R V-Spec came along... The GT-R is also slower than the 911 GT2 thought faster than 911 Turbo, i dunno if the V-Spec is faster than GT2.

    Raikkonen crashes out of tarmac rally

    Kimi Raikkonen at the weekend crashed out of his latest foray into the world of professional rallying.

    The Ferrari driver, having entered two rounds of the Finnish rally championship in the winter, entered the same Tommi Makinen-prepared Fiat Abarthe Grande Punto into the Rally della Marca.

    But on the third stage of the event in northern Italy's Treviso region, while running eighth in his category, Raikkonen crashed and struck a rock verge, terminally damaging the right rear corner of his white car.

    Before the event, the Finn thanked Ferrari for giving him permission to compete.

    "I really enjoy myself (rallying) and it will be my first experience on tarmac after some tests on snow last winter," Raikkonen had said. "As I'm coming from the race track it will be interesting to see what I will be able to do behind the wheel on the roads."



    i think they din have coke and Magnums at the rally for Raikkonen.

    Yup, it came out earlier this yr. Only 30 are built in a mth. A GT-R V-Spec cost twice the price of normal GT-R in Japan. More carbon fibre, rear seats ditched. Only 5bhp more on paper, a bit faster round the Nurburing.

    He is an enigma. Ever since he won the world title, he isn't as 'driven' or as commited as before. Seems like he makes more mistakes or is slower than the rest.

    maybe his aim was for ONE world title. Now that he has it, he's just driving out the rest of his contract?

    As much as I can't stand Steve Slater's commentary, he made one astute observation of Kimi's now-legendary pragmatism. Kimi makes very ice cold yet practical calculations about a race. For instance, if he feels the car is not competitive enough, you won't see him going out of his way to try overtake or do any heroics. On the other hand, if he senses the car is competitive, he will suddenly "come alive" so as to speak and drive like hell.

    As Steve Slater correctly stated, Kimi is the FASTEST natural driver on the grid right now, provided you put him in a competitive car
