"The response from the vehicle when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be", said Mardenborough in today's press release.
Its latest stunt is the flawless cross-over between real life and video games, though - the company hooked up a GT-R with servomotors and robotics to control steering, acceleration, braking and gearshifts, and then made all that run through a PlayStation 4 controller. Mardenborough was spawn through the GT Academy which takes gaming drivers and transforms them into real-life racing drivers.
To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4, Nissan heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely by a DualShock®4 controller. On his fastest lap that lasted one minute 17.47 seconds, the vehicle reached 131 miles per hour and averaged 76 miles per hour.
The only other gadget for Jann was a LCD display mounted the helicopter's cockpit to show the car's speed.
The GT-R/C has a standard 542bhp V6 engine and uses four robots to operate steering, gearbox, brakes and accelerator.
During the run, a micro-computer transmitted inputs from the controller to the GT-R's on-board systems.
Nissan says the car's performance is not restricted by the radio controls so in the right conditions it is capable of a staggering 196mph - with no one in the driver's seat. A Racelogic VBox Motorsport sensor relays speed data to the "remote" driver. Still, it would not be so until next several years after which Nissan introduced the vehicle and availed them in the European as well as American markets and this is how the mental connection has become permanent between the Gran Turismo and GT-R.
Dubbed the GT-R/C (R/C for "remote control"), the vehicle was actually a modified 2011 model with a top speed of 196 miles per hour.
"The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible", states Mardenborough.
Mardenborough described the event as "once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff".
James Brighton, JLB Design Ltd, added: "The GT-R /C presented some unique challenges and a number of engineering firsts for us".
