[VIDEO] Nissan GT-R burns at the Ring during track day

A Nissan GT-R has recently caught fire for no obvious reason during a track day at the famous Nurburgring track, in Germany.

Exotic vehicles seem to be losing to flames these days and after we presented you a Ferrari FF which spontaneously combusted in Hong Kong, the video posted below are showing a Nissan GT-R in a similar situation. The Japanese sports car has caught fire recently on the Nurburgring, during a track day, and the fire was quickly put out by the intervention crews. Flames seemed to be coming from the front right wheel while the driver was slowing down for the Pflanzgarten corner. Nobody was injured in the incident but this is more than we can say about the GT-R.

The Nissan GT-R is a two-door coupe sports car, with a front engine and all-wheel drive layout, assembled in Kaminokawa, Tochigi, Japan, since 2007. The model has been updated annually and it packs a 3.8 liter V6 DOHC engine, producing 485 HP (362 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 588 Nm (434 lb-ft) of torque, between 3,200 rpm and 5,200 rpm, for the models made between 2007 and 2010. Since 2010, the unit is rated at 523 HP (390 kW) and 612 Nm (451 lb-ft) of torque.
