Nissan GT-R sets drift record at 189 mph

Nissan has announced that it has entered the Guinness World Records book with a very special GT-R for the fastest drift ever. Masato Kawabata, a Japanese drift champion for the Japanese drifting series, piloted the specially tuned Nissan GT-R. The record was set at the Fujairah International Airport, UAE. The 2016 GT-R used for the record setting run is far from stock.

The car was specially tuned with support and coordination from Nismo specialists and Greddy Trust.

The tuned car makes 1380hp and was converted so that all the power was sent to the rear wheels. Standard Nissan GT-Rs are all-wheel drive cars.
