The Nissan 370Z NISMO Performs in Unconventional Race Between Man and Machine

There are few thrills more exhilarating than jumping out of a plane and parachuting back to Earth. Adding a wingsuit to the equation and then racing a high performance sports car down a mountain, now that’s a rush.

While it’s highly unlikely that Chicago Nissan shoppers will find themselves tearing down a mountainside in a new Nissan 370Z NISMO, they can take solace in the fact that not only did Nissan make it happen they added a base jumper in a wingsuit into the mix. And then they made them race, because why not?

This adrenaline-junkie’s king of the mountain fantasy was made in an effort to push the limits of Nissan’s new NISMO line of high performance vehicles. With NISMO versions of the new 370Z, GT-R, and Juke models now available, Nissan fans with an already-insatiable need for speed may finally have found the cure to their itch.

Nissan Continues to Push the Limits Well Into the Danger Zone

Chicago NissanIn order to make this insane competition happen, Nissan flew their 2012 GT Academy Champion Peter Pyzera out to the Susten Pass in the Swiss Alps. Amongst the backdrop of one of the most beautiful scenic views in the world, man and machine faced off in an epic battle of speed and heart palpitations as Peter got behind the wheel of new 370Z NISMO and tore down the twists and turns of the Pass’ roads, hot on the heels of wingsuited-base jumper Dave Barlia.

Barlia was hooked up to a number of monitoring systems to record his blood pressure and heart rate, as was Pyzera in an effort to see which method of transportation was more exhilarating. While that comparison seemed a little unfair, the friendly competition certainly lacked nothing in terms of excitement and was truly a spectacle that you’ve got to see to believe.
