Japanese drift champion Masata Kawabata was recently tasked to pilot a 1,380hp Nismo GTR for a record breaking attempt for highest speed drift. The GTR is a collaboration between legendary tuners Nismo and GReddy Trust. The team’s sole purpose for this build was to create a monster GTR to break the current high speed drift record of 135mph.

The car was tested in Japan on the Fuji Speedway, but shipped to United Arab Emirate’s Fujairah International Airport for the Guinness Book of World Record attempt. In true Nismo and GReddy fashion, why attempt at beating a record when you can go ahead and smash it to pieces then step on all the broken record remains. The GTR posted a 190mph drift with an entry angle of 30 degrees. This car not officially holds the record of highest speed drift and took the title away from Poland’s Jakub Przygoński.
