Nissan Bids Farewell To Holidays By Doing This

Nissan Bids Farewell To Holidays By Doing This

Well, here’s one way to take the ornaments off your Christmas tree in a hurry.

This year, Nissan used a GT-R to do it in 2.7 seconds. Experienced formula DRIFT driver Chris Forsberg was behind the wheel of the twin-turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sportster. He hitched the GT-R up to the tree and used launch control to spin the ornaments off of it.

Now before you get any ideas of your own, note that we wouldn’t personally advise this method for a number of reasons, namely the safety of everyone involved. Plus, most of the ornaments don’t make it.

Nissan also makes the disclaimer that this is a professional driver on a closed course and says not to attempt to pull or tow anything with the GT-R.

But it’s a cool stunt that gets the job done.

If you want to know how the whole stunt was set up, check out this behind-the-scenes video.
