The 4×4 climbed a 100m dune in Jordan’s Wadi Rum to bag its second Guinness World Record
The Nissan Patrol has clinched a Guinness World Record for the fastest production car to ascend a 100m sand dune.
Piloted by an off-roading instructor, the Patrol climbed the dune in Jordan’s Wadi Rum in 4.9 seconds to break the Guinness World Record, its second title thus far.
The Nissan Patrol also holds a world record for the heaviest object pulled by any production vehicle. The record was set at the Sharjah International Airport in the UAE, where an unmodified production Nissan patrol pulled a cargo plane weighing 170.9 tonnes (inclusive of fuel and cargo) for over 50m, breaking a previous record by 15 tonnes.
“The Nissan Patrol has again proved that there are no conditions it can’t tackle and conquer. We believe that this latest award shows the Nissan Patrol is one of the best production cars for off-roading and dune bashing on the market,” said Samir Cherfan, Nissan Middle East managing director.
The first Nissan Patrol in the Middle East arrived in Kuwait in 1956, he added. “While loyalty to the Nissan Patrol stretches back decades, we are expanding to a new audience all the time as the record number of vehicles leaving the showrooms indicates.
