Remote-Controlled GTR

Sony’s PS4 Pro is great for racing games, but for something more realistic, you may need to check out this remote-controlled Nissan GT-R. You read that right, the automaker heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely with a DualShock 4 controller, and called it the “GT-R /C”. It was driven by Mardenborough around Silverstone’s National Circuit, where the car hit a top speed of 131 mph and averaged 76 mph. To make things easy (and safer), it was controlled from a helicopter that followed the race car around the track. “This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff. 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. The response from the car when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. Steering, acceleration and braking were all intelligently configured, allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights,” said Mardenborough.
