Nissan GT-R Driven with a Gaming Controller (Real Live Test)


0   0

Nissan GB has created the ultimate remote­-control car for gamers – the Nissan GT­-R /C.

Celebrating the release of Gran Turismo Sport and marking 20 years of Nissan involvement in the Gran Turismo gaming series, the one-­off project car was extensively modified to be driven entirely by a DualShock 4 controller.

A few millimetres of button movement or joystick travel are all it takes to unleash the GT-­R’s full power. The remote­ control vehicle is capable of a top speed of 196mph – not restricted for the purpose of the project car – with no one sitting behind the wheel.

The Nissan GT-­R /C was put through its paces by NISMO racing driver Jann Mardenborough, around Silverstone’s famous National Circuit. Jann controlled the GT-R /C from the cockpit of a Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter, which had been given special permission to operate at a low altitude.
