World’s Fastest Drift Made Possible by this Nissan GT-R


How fast is a fast drift? 60mph? 80mph? How about 189.5mph: that’s the new Guinness world speed record for drifting, set by this specially-developed Nissan GT-R.

When it’s on full boost its 4.0-litre engine makes something approaching 1400bhp, which it drives through the rear wheels to push it very, very sideways. Will it drift? Er, yes, of course it will. But how hard is it? We speak to the team behind it, and drive it, to find out.

Do you think it can ever be beaten?
