Nissan Breaks Longest Twin Vehicle Drifting Record in Dubai

Nissan 370Z

Nissan has set an impressive new record in the world of competitive driving during the Nissan 370Z DriftExperience promotion in Dubai. Two Nissan Z cars drifted around the same track at the same time without stopping for an astonishing 17.72 miles, earning Nissan the world’s longest twin vehicle drifting record.

The third time’s the charm for the Nissan Middle East branch that was behind the performance, which now holds the Guinness World Record for twin vehicle drifting after two failed attempts to break the previous all-time score.

The Nissan 370Z DriftExperience program offered driving enthusiasts the opportunity “to learn and perfect the art of drifting,” according to the World Record Academy. Drifting enthusiasts present for the program must have been ecstatic to witness the Nissan Z twin-drifting feat first-hand.
