Nissan GT-R versus a GT-R Drone: Which is Faster?

- in Cars

Nissan pits 2017 GT-R against a 115mph drone. Result is actually quite exciting.
Nissan apparently has a problem. Its 2017 Nissan GT-R is so fast that regular drones are unable to keep up with it. Therefore, the carmaker has unveiled the GT-R Drone, one of the fastest accelerating first-person view (FPV) racing drones in the world specifically to keep apace with the powerful supercar as it accelerates off the mark.

To test out the GT-R Drone’s capabilities, Nissan decided to unleash its well-known sports car on a purpose-built course at Silverstone, and have the drone attempt to follow it. With a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 under the hood providing 565 hp and 633 Nm, the road-going GT-R is looking to put on a strong fight.

Nissan says the GT-R drone can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 1.3 seconds, which actually outstrips the GT-R supercar from a standing start. But this speedy superiority doesn’t last for too long, as the drone tops out at 115 mph while the supercar can hit a max speed of 196 mph, giving it a distinct advantage in the straightaways.

Even the incredible four-wheel-drive system of the GT-R can’t match the ultimate agility of the drone, which is has a turning circle of just 0.3 meters. Its custom setup allows it to perform heart-stopping maneuvers with incredible precision and agility.
