This is a story of disaster narrowly averted. Arriving rapidly at 220 mph during a brutal half-mile run, this Nissan GT-R driver soon finds himself pirouetting through the desert.
A parachute attached to the car doesn’t bother opening; the car continues to spin. Eventually it comes to a rest, having kept the shiny side up(we promise, it’s shiny under that inch of dust) by some not-so-minor miracle throughout the process. Many others who have crashed at such high speeds haven't been so lucky.
The driver then cruises sedately back into the paddock.
