Nissan 370Z Nismo Vs Wingsuit
That was five years ago, so Nissan obviously feel enough time has passed to plagiarise Top Gear’s stunt without too much criticism, so they’ve decided to pit a man in a wingsuit – who isn’t Red Devils – against a man in a car that isn’t a Porsche.
So we have Peter Pyzera - Germany’s 2012 Nissan GT Academy Champion – in a 370Z Nismo blatting his way down Switzerland’s Susten Pas as it falls 4,501 feet and BASE jumper Dave Barlia in a wingsuit doing the same.
Peter Pyzera said after the stunt:
That was absolutely amazing, I could see Dave up above me and I just had to concentrate and get in the zone to beat him down.
Afterwards we looked at the data we gathered from wearing the biometric harnesses, which monitor my biometric data, and I could see when I was totally focussed. While this is fun, it is serious business – it not only improves my performance but is invaluable in helping me prepare for my next race.
Apart from showcasing the Nismo, the video is about Nissan’s GT Academy, now in its fifth season, which was created by Nissan and Playstation to bring together virtual and real-life and searches out the best on-line gamers and aspiring race drivers to compete.
We just wish the stunt had been a bit more original.
