The Nissan Patrol goes dancing and breaks the Guinness Book of World Records while at it

November 7, 2018

Many car enthusiasts regard the Nissan Patrol as one of the most capable vehicles around. Its combination of true off-road capability mixed with luxurious amenities has made it a favorite among many the world over. But did you know that the Patrol can also dance?

Yes, Nissan Dubai has shown this via a coordinated number involving 180 Nissan Patrols that performed a synchronized car dance, forming the shape of a Desert Falcon while at it. The feat has earned the Japanese brand’s erstwhile SUV a third Guinness Book of World Records title

Done at Dubai Rugby 7’s stadium, some 180 Patrols went around a 1,476m distance to form a 176.5m by 225mm Desert Falcon—outperforming the previous world record by some 39 cars. The falcon in flight, as it is viewed from the air, is the largest gathering of its kind thus far.

As mentioned, this is not the first time that the Patrol has broken the Guinness Book of World Records. The first record was achieved when the Nissan SUV towed the world’s heaviest jet over a distance of 50m. This was done in August of 2013 at Sharjah Airport in the UAE. This was later followed by the fastest climb up a sand dune at a quick 4.9 seconds. This was accomplished in September 2015.

The latest record once again proves just how truly capable the Nissan Patrol is. And yes, it also demonstrates that you can take your Patrol dancing if you sho choose.
