Nissan Great Britain has created the ultimate remote vehicle for gamers called the Nissan GT-R/C which is operated by a PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller.
Nismo racing driver and Gran Turismo gamer Jann Mardenborough was then given the controller and told to lap Silverstone.
The one-off project auto was extensively modified to be driven entirely by a PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller to celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport, out in Europe and Australasia on October 18th, and marking 20 years of Nissan involvement in the Gran Turismo gaming series.
The choice of Mardenborough as the driver is an obvious one, as he was one of the first winners of the Nissan PlaystationGT Academy, a competition that's been turning gamers into professional racing drivers since 2008.
The GT-R /C managed an impressive average speed of 76 miles per hour and topped out at 131 miles per hour - drivers behind the wheel of non-RC cars usually average around 83mph on the circuit. Mardenborough controlled the GT-R /C from the cockpit of a helicopter.
The cool auto was made to celebrate twenty years of Nissan's involvement with the Gran Turismo franchise as well as the upcoming release of Gran Turismo Sport, which gets released in the United States on October 17. Six computers in the trunk translated inputs from the PS4 controller and actuated the GT-R/C's steering, brakes, throttle, and transmission. It is operated using an unmodified PlayStation DualShock 4 controller, and the system can operate the vehicle from up to 1 kilometer away.
The controller itself is hooked up to a micro-computer that interprets the joystick and button signals, transmitting them to the GT-R /C's onboard systems.
