Nissan 370Z Nismo Races a BASE Jumper [video]
The Nissan 370Z is arguably one of the most overlooked and underrated sportscars currently available. It looks decent enough, it drives decent enough, but there’s just nothing that screams excitement. So, in order to inject a bit of life back into the coupe, Nissan pit a 370Z Nismo against a guy dressed like a squirrel (aka, a BASE jumper).
Behind the wheel of the Nismo is none other than 2012 GT Academy champion Peter Pyzera, competing with professional BASE jumper Dave Barlia who will make the 4,501-foot drop. At this rate, he’ll be honing in on speeds close to 130 mph (210 km/h), while the 370 zips around the mountain roads at slightly slower speeds.
Of course, we won’t ruin the ending for you. Click on the video below to find out who wins:
