Nissan has announced that its Nissan Middle East branch has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest nonstop twin vehicle drift. Prior to the attempt the record committee set the minimum distance required with was 15.5 miles. The record was easily beaten by two drivers that drifted modified Nissan Z coupes around a wet track for a nonstop run at 17.7 miles.

This was a great record to set at the beginning of Nissans 370Z Drift Experience event as the program was launched by Nissan Middle East and the Prodrift Academy in an effort to teach anyone how to drift masterfully. Dubai was a great place to do this because the drifting in the area is very popular with some events bringing in at least 15,000 attendees.

This year the 370Z is getting a much needed price drop which will not start at $30,800, the Nismo Coupe with run $42,800 which is a good price for an entry level sports coupe.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Loses Guinness World Record for Fastest Production Car Title

Guinness World Records has made an announcement that Bugatti has been stripped of the title for fastest production car in the world. After setting a record speed of 267.8 mph, Bugatti has held that record for almost three years. The record has been re-investigated after accusations were made that the Veyron used in the record-setting run had its speed limiter removed.

This suspicion has been confirmed by Guinness World Records and since the speed limiter was removed, it was no longer considered the same production car that consumers paid their hard-earned money for. As the rules state, the record must be set in a car that is mechanically identical to those on sale to the public. Most likely, the title of world’s fastest production car will go to Shelby SuperCars’ Ultimate Aero, which held the record of 256.1 mph before the Veyron Super Sport went 267.8.
