Nissan GT-R Crashes At The Drag Strip While Racing A BMW 4-Series

Racing is always dangerous, and that doesn’t exclude drag races, as the driver of a GT-R found out recently.

The Godzilla lined up at the start line along with a BMW 4-Series Coupe and once the light turned green, it set off like a bat out of hell.

Straight from the start, you can see the GT-R struggling for traction. Things might have been better if the driver simply lifted their right foot just a bit, but of course, that could have meant losing the race to the Bimmer.

So, the person behind the wheel of the Japanese sports car decided it would be best keep pushing the throttle hard. A few seconds later, he simply lost it and ended up hitting the side barrier, cutting off the BMW 4-Series within the process, which, by the way, managed to brake just in time.

The safety crew then arrived at the scene, ready to put out a fire if necessary, but luckily, the Nissan didn’t burst in flames. In fact, while it will definitely have to visit a workshop, it doesn’t seem as it’s a write off.

More importantly, though, the driver left the wreckage on his own, although visibly shaken by the crash. Well, we can’t blame him – anyone in his position would feel the same way.

      Yeah if it was a Porsche (like the previous story) you wouldn’t mind though right? Can’t show any crashes of JDM cars though, that’s not on.
