Nissan sets new drifting world record

A pair of Nissan 370Zs have set a new Guinness World Record for the longest ever twin-vehicle drift.

The stunt, held in Dubai at the launch of Nissan’s ‘370Z Drift Experience’, saw the two V6-engined Z cars drift around a track side by side for a total of 28.52km - 17.7 miles. Not bad, you will agree.

“The Nissan Z is a very popular car in the drifting scene,” said Samir Cherfan, MD of Nissan’s Middle East division, “and this new record is yet another proof on the ability of this car to make drifting look so easy.”

It’s a cool record for Nissan to notch up. Want a few more records? The longest vehicle drift was set earlier this year in Turkey, set by Harald Müller who slid for 89.55 miles. The fastest drift? In 2013, Jakub Przygonski went sideways at 135.44mph in Poland.

And the record for the most amount of cars performing donuts simultaneously, set in 2012, stands at 107.

Reckon you’re any better than these chaps?
