Nissan Patrol Just Beats VW's Aircraft Towing Record

Guinness World Record

Of course, now someone has to find an even bigger plane.

In one of the less creative Guinness World Records, Nissan Middle East used a Nissan Patrol, equipped with a 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8, to set the record for towing. The SUV pulled a 170-ton cargo plane, beating the old record set by the VW Touareg towing a 747 by about 15 tons. One would think Nissan could have thought of something a bit more original than simply towing a slightly heavier plane, but Guinness doesn’t give any extra points for creativity.

The event took place at Sharjah Airport UAE. Hat tip to Suhaib for sending in the story and helping with the language barrier.
