Video: Nissan 370Z Nismo Versus Wingsuit

Posted on by  

In the automotive world, we see all kinds of tests and wacky comparisons, putting the most craziest things against one another. We have to admit that this newest competition lauched by Nissan ranks pretty highly in creativity. Nissan pitted its resident sports car against a man in a wingsuit.

Peter Pyzera — the 2012 Nissan GT Academy champion — took the wheel of the 2014 Nissan 370Z Nismo and legendary wingsuit athlete, Dave Barlia, took the leap of faith in the Swiss Alps.

Barlia had to make a 4,510-foot drop, and he hit a top speed of 130 mph, while clearing the rocky surface by just 19.6 feet. Along with him on this scary descent is Jukeride, which is a unique analysis tool that allowed the engineers to monitor biometric and telematic data as he glided to earth.

Check out the video (above) to see whether the Nismo or the wingsuit triumphed.
