You must complete a full Time Trial lap on Nürburgring Nordschleife in under 7'29.03" in the Arcade version of the Nissan GT-R '07 with Sports Hard grade wheels. The record was set by Toshio Suzuki in a real GT-R on 17 April 2008. His lap time ended just after he rounded the last turn, so the player needs to be ahead by a further five seconds or so to make the time.

Nurburgring Nordschleife is normally unlocked in Arcade mode after completing the Beginner and Intermediate trials in the AMG Driving Academy special event. A patch made it available from the start, but you still should not attempt this until completing the first two sets in that event; You will not know Nurburgring well enough to make the lap time. If you can get silver or better in the full-lap runs, you're ready to tackle this. The driving line lies like crazy, so you'll need to have memorized when you're really supposed to brake.

In Time Trials, you will be disqualified (lap time turns red) if you stray off track for too long, try to cut across the terrain, or crash too hard.

The GT-R will feel like a halfway point between the Mercedes 300SL and SLS '10 you used in AMGDA. It's fairly good at braking, but you must ensure the vehicle is stable before braking sharply, lest you lose control.

My video below shows me completing it six seconds ahead of the record with a wheel. As long as you're within 5 seconds of my split times, you're in good shape. The other video shows Toshio Suzuki's actual run back in 2008.

Settings I used:
Traction Control: 5
Automatic Stability Management: Off
Active Steering: Off
ABS: 1
