Nissan GT-R breaks ice speed record

The Nissan GT-R has broken Russia’s ice speed record – hitting 186mph on the world’s deepest lake.

The unmodified GT-R was driven at 294.8km/h across the surface of Lake Baikal, which contains around 20 per cent of the world’s fresh water.

The 540hp stock model’s all wheel drive stopped the car spinning out of control.

But the two-man team failed to break the global speed record for a car on ice, which was set  by an Audi RS6 with Nokian Tyres in March 2013.

A Bentley Continental Supersports previously reached 205mph.
