Nissan GT-R Goes Airborne


A warning to anyone that driving fast is not a skill we all possess. Neither is landing an aircraft, apparently.

With its 3.8-liter turbocharged V6 putting out 545 horsepower and the ability to hit 62 mph from standstill in less than three seconds, driving a Nissan GT-R is all about going fast. But there is a limit to how fast you can go on public streets, and unfortunately few of Godzilla's owners seem to grasp that. In this latest video, shot at an apparent gathering of GT-R owners, one driver puts the pedal so far to the metal that he actually goes airborne. Which only goes to show how close some supercars come to jet aircraft in their levels of thrust.

Unfortunately, unlike the fighter-pilots who are trained to handle all that power and plant them back down on narrow airstrips safely, the end doesn't turn out so well for this driver.

After getting a bit tasty with the throttle down a back street, the car gets some serious air before coming to an untimely stop by the side of the road - or more accurately, right off it. Something to keep in mind when the need for speed next tries to get the better of you.
