Has a top speed of approximately 115 mph.

Nissan has unveiled its new GT-R Drone which is being billed as "one of the fastest accelerating First Person View racing drones in the world."

Designed to keep up with the 2017 Nissan GT-R, the GT-R Drone was developed by World Drone Prix Champions Tornado XBlades Racing. It features a Sky-Hero quadcopter frame, a 1,400 milliampere hour lithium polymer battery, and four propellers that are powered by 2,000 kilovolt XNova motors.

Thanks to this setup, the drone can accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometres per hour) in 1.3 seconds before hitting a top speed of approximately 115 mph (185 km/h). The drone can easily beat the GT-R off the line but the story changes at higher speeds as the car tops out at 195 mph (314 km/h).

In an effort to showcase the drone's potential, Nissan took it to the Silverstone circuit where it raced alongside a GT-R being driven by Ricardo Sanchez. As you can see in the video, the GT-R Drone is amazingly quick and responsive. Given its high performance, Nissan enlisted 2015 British National Drone Racing champion James Bowles to pilot the model.
