Nissan GT-R/C is a racecar you drive with a PlayStation controller

The company has transformed the Nissan GT-R into the biggest remote control auto, which can be controlled using DualShock 4 controller to make the GT-R /C.

The auto was created to promote Gran Turismo Sport and saw the Nissan GT-R /C fitted with four individual robots that control the steering, transmission, brakes, and throttle. "Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131mph at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience".

The driver of the vehicle was flown around behind the GT-R /C in a helicopter and controlled the auto from there.

To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4, Nissan built a auto that perfectly blends video game driving and real-life racetrack antics.

The GT-R/C has a standard 542bhp V6 engine and uses four robots to operate steering, gearbox, brakes and accelerator. To assist Mardenborough in remotely controlling the vehicle is a Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor, which relayed speed data to a LCD display in the helicopter cockpit. They hooked up a GT-R to a PlayStation DualShock 4 controller and let it loose for remotely-controlled flying laps around Silverstone's National Circuit.

It works by linking the unmodified DualShock®4 to a microcomputer which then interpreted every button bash and transmitted the commands to the onboard systems inside the GT-R /C.

Nissan has come up with something very appreciable innovation to celebrate releasing of the Gran Turismo Sport on 18th October.

On Mardenborough's fastest lap (1:17:47), the GT-R /C averaged 76 miles per hour and reached a top speed of 131 miles per hour. Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131 miles per hour at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience.

Mardenborough described it as "once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff". 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. The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible. In the meantime, you can check out the GT-R stunt below.

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.
