Holy smokes! Literally... NISSAN GT-R drifts at 305km/h
Nissan has set the Guinness World Records title for the fastest ever drift. The record was broken with a speed of 304.96 km/h and a 30° angle using a specially-tuned MY16 Nissan GT-R. The Japanese drift champion Masato Kawabata clinched top spot from former record holder Jakub Przygoński of Poland.
The record was set during a special event at the Fujairah International Airport, UAE. The record-breaking Nissan GT-R was developed with the support of Nismo specialists. It was tuned to 1,380hp and adapted so all the power went to the rear wheels. It was prepared by Greddy Trust and tested extensively at Japan’s Fuji Speedway.
