Nam Wheels - - Front Page -

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.
