No matter what Nissan said or will say it is most likely it would be in Japanese and then translated. I was quite sure I read an equivalent statement to "showroom stock" which is indeed my own wording. In a press release or on a web site Nissan stated (Mizuno, I think) that this car (the one that got a particular lap time) was the same as one purchased right from the showroom floor. For the life of me I can not find this statement nor a quote. Since the latest time was with the special wheels and tires the statement must have been in regards to one of the other recent lap times but not the latest 7:26 time.
Can anyone locate the relevant quote or web page?
