Nissan Sets ‘Longest Twin Vehicle Drift’ Record

Nissan Middle East is showing off what its “Nissan 370Z Drift Experience” can teach you.

A pair of 370Z sports cars have set a new Guinness World Records record for “Longest Twin Vehicle Drifting,” after drifting around a track at the same time without stopping for 17.72 miles. The record was set as a promotion for the automaker’s new 370Z Drift Experience, which is a collaboration between Nissan Middle East and the Prodrift Academy to help teach aspiring drifters in a safe and controlled environment.

Drifting has become an extremely popular sport in the Middle East since 2009, when the first regional drifting competition was launched. Last August, Nissan Middle East also set another Guinness World Records title when the Nissan Patrol successfully towed the world’s heaviest aircraft, pulling a 170.9-ton cargo plane for over 164 feet at Sharjah International Airport in the UAE.

“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,” said Nissan Middle East Manage Director, Samir Cherfan. “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.”
