GT-R fans the world over are rejoicing at the accomplishment of a feat that’s put their favorite car in the world in the Guinness bool of world record. The feat in question is the fastest drift ever conducted, and it’s been done by a specially prepared version of the Nissan GT-R Nismo.

The 1,380 horsepower Godzilla, converted to be rear-wheel-drive only, managed to execute a 30 degree slide at a mind-bending 304.96 km/h, which you’ll agree is pretty impressive. It’s mindless, but really rather exciting. The location for this stunt was the Fujairah International Airport in UAE and the superhuman who did the job was Masato Kawabata, the Japanese drift champion and title holder for the Japanese drifting series.


The record-breaking Nissan GT-R Nismo was prepared by GReddy Trust who had to set up a camp at the airport to make sure the car functions properly for the event. The car was running Toyo tires.

“Once again, Nissan has broken a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title and has made international history for the fifth time in the Middle East,” said Samir Cherfan, Managing Director of Nissan Middle East. “The Nissan GT-R is one of the world’s most iconic supercars, proving time and again the incredible breadth of its capabilities, and has clearly demonstrated its performance leadership by beating the best drift cars out there. The fact that this achievement was set here in the UAE makes it even more special for our region. Setting this incredibly difficult world record was a clear demonstration of the excitement we are bringing to the Middle East with the Nismo brand.”
