Nissan creates a GT-R drone that will launch from 0-62 mph in just 1.3 seconds. It’s one of the fastest accelerating First Person View (FPV) racing drones on the planet. Nissan designed it to keep up with the new 2017 GT-R for filming purposes on the track. For fun, Nissan pits the two against each other.

The GT-R drone was custom designed by World Drone Prix Champions, Tornado XBlades Racing. Nissan says the GT-R Drone uses a special race tuned configuration and low-drag canopy to hit those high speeds. It uses four propellers mated with 2000kV XNova motors and race specification Sky-Hero quadcopter frame.

Watch the 2017 Nissan GT-R with Nissan NISMO driver Ricardo Sanchez behind the wheel of the new performance car. James Bowles, the 2015 British National Drone Racing champion, pilots the GT-R Drone around a purpose-built 1.2-mile course at Silverstone. Both machines are impressive in their own right. Which is faster?
