While not in any way modified beyond standard, the GT Black Series as-delivered is a very manually adjustable car. As such, the settings for the record-setter were just-so and to devastating effect. “Maximum possible” camber joins anti-roll bars in their hardest setting and a lower ride height, by 5mm and 3mm front and rear respectively, via the adjustable coilovers.
The car’s splitter was in its Race position, spoiler blades in their middle position and nine-stage traction control in settings six and seven, changed periodically throughout the lap. It perhaps goes without saying the car featured the factory track package, which includes sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres. This adjustability is what is claimed to be the key to the car’s dominance at the Nordschleife.
