The car, dubbed the Nissan GT-R/C, hit speeds of over 130 miles per hour as Mardenborough steered it around Silverstone's National Circuit from above, riding in a helicopter with DualShock 4 controller in hand. There's nobody in the car, which is capable of being remotely driven at speeds of up to 196 mph.
The stunt is part of the rollout of " Gran Turismo Sport," the latest in the long-running (20 years!) driving simulator series. The game launches in the U.S. on Oct. 17. The remote driving system in the GT-R/C was built by JLB Design, which has built over 70 full-size remote-control vehicles.
