Nissan GT-R Record

Nissan has announced that it grabbed the Guinness World Records title for the fastest ever drift! The record was broken with a speed of 189 mph and 30 degrees angle using a specially-tuned 2016 GT-R. Masato Kawabata, the Japanese drift champion and title holder for the Japanese drifting series, clinched the top spot from former record holder Jakub Przygoński of Poland.

The record-breaking Nissan GT-R was tuned by Nismo specialists and GReddy Trust. It was tuned to 1380 horsepower and modified so all the power went to the rear wheels.
