This is the Coolest Remote-Controlled Car Ever

This is the Coolest Remote-Controlled Car Ever

What's more, it's a completely remote-controlled GT-R-renamed the GT-R/C-as demonstrated by Nissan racing driver Jann Mardenborough, who drove the auto around the Silverstone racing circuit from the passenger seat of a helicopter circling above.

Mardenborough is handy with both PS4 controller and steering wheel: he's one of the most successful winners of GT Academy, Nissan's "driver discovery and development" programme that puts gamers into real-life motorsport.

Mardenborough fastest lap controlling the R/C GT-R from a helicopter flying overhead was timed at 1 minute and 17.47 seconds and he hit a top speed of 211kph and he lapped the track at an average velocity of 122kph.

The fastest lap achieved by Mardenborough was 1min 17.47sec, where the vehicle reached a top speed of 131mph and averaged 76mph.

To lap one of the short circuits at Silverstone, Mardenborough jumped into the passenger seat of a helicopter and controlled the Japanese sports auto from above. Still, it would not be so until next several years after which Nissan introduced the auto 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. Mardenborough became a racecar driver after winning the GT Academy program, which gives virtual racers the chance to compete for a spot as a real-world racing driver.

Instead of connecting to a PlayStation though it connected to a micro-computer interpreted the joystick and button movements and transmitted them directly to the GT-R, with a primary control range of 1km.

Four robots controlled the steering, transmission, brakes, and throttle based on commands from the unmodified Playstation controller. The vehicle has a wireless operation range of about one kilometer.

"This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff", said Mardenborough.

Next year the GT-R/C will be used on a tour of primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom to promote future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The GT-R /C was enginered by JLB Design which used a standard spec V6-powered R35.
