World's strongest man sets new Guinness record by pulling 12 Nissan Notes

Zydrunas Savickas pulled twelve Nissan Note cars for five meters, setting a new Guinness world record. The five-time World Strongest Man champion required only one attempt to make the record. See it on video here.


The new Guinness world record for "Most Cars Pulled By One Man" was set by Zydrunas Savickas this week, who arrived at the record attempt in one of the cars he would later be towing. By hand. Along with eleven of its friends.

The twelve Nissan Notes weighed in at 12,941 kilograms altogether, but it only took the world's strongest man 33 seconds to pull them for a total of five meters, all at once.

Held in Druskininkai, Lithuania, this world record attempt marked the end of the Lithuanian Car of the Year test camp with crowds turning out from all over the country to see their national hero Savickas set the new record. Savickas was presented with an official certificate from Guinness World Records representative Jack Brockbank marking this major achievement from the strongman.

The Note, of course, was launched earlier this year. Here in the U.S., it's known as the Versa Note while in some markets, it's simply called the Note. The European version Savickas pulled houses a 1.2-liter supercharged gasoline four-cylinder engine. The Note joins the Nissan LEAF in the Guinness record books, the LEAF having set the record for most electric vehicles driven in unison - 260 of them in Norway.
