The Guinness World Record for the longest twin-car drift has been broken by two Nissan 370Z sports cars. During the Nissan 370Z drift experience in Dubai, two drivers successfully piloted their cars sideways for 28.52km, or 17.72 miles.
In case you were wondering, the record for the longest solo drift was set by German driver Harald Müller who collaborated with the Turkish Ministry of Sports and recorded a 144.126km drift.
The twin drift routine took over 44 minutes to complete, and in Guinness tradition, it had to be completed twice to be verified. In a statement, Nissan Middle East managing director Samir Cherfan said,
“With today’s accomplishment of setting a new Guinness World Records title, we have proven again the strength of our vehicles by adding another Guinness World Records record to our list. The Nissan Z is a very popular car in the drifting scene, and this new record is yet another proof on the ability of this car to make drifting look so easy.”
