Nissan GT-R Remotely Driven With PS Controller Hits 130 miles per hour

To mark Nissan's 20-year involvement with the Gran Turismo Sport game franchise, the Japanese automaker created this one-off project: a life size GT-R controlled entirely by a DualShock4, and piloted by NISMO athlete and GT Academy victor Jann Mardenborough around Silverstone's famous National Circuit in the UK.

Nismo racing driver and Gran Turismo gamer Jann Mardenborough was then given the controller and told to lap Silverstone. Not only is Mardenborough a driver for Nissan Motorsport (and previously Impul, a Japanese racing team with deep ties to Nissan), Mardenborough's racing career began when he won the GT Academy competition, a Gran Turismo contest which takes the game's fastest players and put them into real-world racer development programs.

GT Academy victor and NISMO driver Jann Mardenborough was the lucky rascal charged with manoeuvring the thing, and he did so from the cockpit of a helicopter to make it all the cooler. Obviously having a ball, Mardenborough didn't hold back, averaging 122 km/h (76 mph), reaching a top speed of 211 km/h (131 mph) and clocking a lap of 1:17:47. 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.

Gran Turismo Sport is due to be released on October 17-barring any unforeseen six-year delays. Still, it would not be so until next several years after which Nissan introduced the vehicle and availed them in the European as well as American markets and this is how the mental connection has become permanent between the Gran Turismo and GT-R. The extensive modifications to the auto included four robots operating the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle.

Tim Cahill brace puts end to Syria's World Cup dream
Robbie Kruse found space on the left-edge of the box and crossed for Cahill to head in his 50th worldwide goal for Australia . The Syrian team has been on a remarkable run despite being forced to play all its games in other countries.


During the run, a micro-computer transmitted inputs from the controller to the GT-R's on-board systems. Six onboard computers were able to update the controls 100 times per second, and the vehicle had a wireless range of just over half a mile.

Dubbed the GT-R/C (R/C for "remote control"), the vehicle was actually a modified 2011 model with a top speed of 196 miles per hour.

"This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff", Mardenborough said. As a victor of the Nissan GT Academy competition that combines virtual racing with actual track races, Mardenborough was a natural choice for the task.
