Nissan GT-R/C is a racecar you drive with a PlayStation controller

Nissan Raced A GT-R Around A Track At 210KM/H, Using A PS4 Controller

Nissan Great Britain has created the ultimate remote auto for gamers called the Nissan GT-R/C which is operated by a PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller.

To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4, Nissan built a vehicle that perfectly blends video game driving and real-life racetrack antics. Mardenborough was spawn through the GT Academy which takes gaming drivers and transforms them into real-life racing drivers. JLB Design converted a standard 2011 GT-R from the year Mardenborough won Nissan and Gran Turismo's GT Academy program into the GT-R/C.

The GT-R /C, as it has been named, has been modified by United Kingdom firm JLB Design with mechanical parts to control the steering, throttle and brakes, as well as the gear selector, so it can be driven externally without anyone on board. On his fastest lap that lasted one minute 17.47 seconds, the vehicle reached 131 miles per hour and averaged 76 miles per hour. 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.

Nissan has come up with something very appreciable innovation to celebrate releasing of the Gran Turismo Sport on 18th October.


During the run, a micro-computer transmitted inputs from the controller to the GT-R's on-board systems. However, the controller had one serious modification, a range of one kilometre. It is operated using an unmodified PlayStation DualShock 4 controller, and the system can operate the vehicle from up to 1 kilometer away.

"This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff", said the current full-time racer.

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. Six computers also connected everything together and were able to make adjustments up to 100 times per second. 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.

The GT-R/C will tour primary and secondary schools in an effort to promote careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. In the meantime, you can check out the GT-R stunt below.
