Nissan created a drone that is able to keep up with the new 2017 Nissan GT-R, the brand's most brutal road model! Of course, it goes by the name GTR-R Drone, one of the fastest accelerating FPV (First Person View) racing drones in the world.

In order to keep to keep up with the new 2017 Nissan GT-R while filming on the track, the drone was custom designed by World Drone Prix Champions, Tornado XBlades Racing. They equipped it with the very latest in performance-enhancing technology, giving the drone a special race tuned configuration and low-drag canopy to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in just 1.3 seconds.

While Nissan GT-R car transfers power from its twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter 24-valve V6 to all four wheels, the GT-R Drone delivers incredible acceleration via four propellers mated with 2000kV XNova motors and race specification Sky-Hero quadcopter frame. The ultimate agilty and accelerations of the drone with a turning circle of just 0.3 meters can't be matched by the four-wheel-drive system of the GT-R, which is, however the dominant one at least when it comes to top speed: the car can reach top speeds of up to 315 km/h, while the GT-R Drone has a top speed of approximately 185 km/h.

Both machines also displayed their potentials at the challenging, purpose-built 1.2-mile course at Silverstone circuit, where the race saw Nissan NISMO driver Ricardo Sanchez take the wheel of the new GT-R with James Bowles, the 2015 British National Drone Racing champion, piloting the GT-R Drone.
