Nissan Middle East Sets a New Guinness World Record [VIDEO]
This week Nissan Middle East broke a new Guinness World Record for the longest twin vehicle drifting.
The record was scored during the Nissan 370Zs Drift Experience in Dubai. The two Nissan vehicles drifted around a track simultaneously without stopping for 28.52 kilometers. This astounding result was achieved in the second attempt during the launch of the "Nissan 370Z Drift Experience."
During the event, Samir Cherfan, Managing Director, Nissan Middle East, pointed out that: "With today's accomplishment of setting a new Guinness World Records title, we have proven again the strength of our vehicles by adding another Guinness World Records record to our list. The Nissan Z is a very popular car in the drifting scene, and this new record is yet another proof on the ability of this car to make drifting look so easy."
Furthermore, in August 2013, Nissan Middle East receives another Guinness World Records title. This time it was because the Nissan patrol depicted its immense power by pulling the world's heaviest aircraft like a bag of potatoes. Precisely, the "nearly 3-ton 4WD ‘Hero of All Terrains in Life'" managed to tow a 170.9- ton cargo plane for more than 164 feet (50 meters). The spectacular accomplishment happened at the Sharjah International Airport in the UAE and offered a balanced level of entertainment, show and tension.
Still though, Nissan does not gamble with safety. Rather, it is one of the most significant aspects and priority number one for the automaker. For this reason it is partnering with Prodrift Academy in order to provide a legally improved and safe platform for drifting performances in the area.
