Video: Top Gear Drives The Nissan ZEOD RC

Thanks to the folks at Top Gear, now we can see what it’s like to be behind the wheel of Nissan’s Zero Electric On Demand Race Car (ZEOD RC). Recently driver Ollie Marriage took the needle nosed, diesel hybrid racer out on track for a filming session produced by Smudge Media.

Marriage says even though it looks radically different on the outside, once strapped in and stomping hard on the go pedal, the car is capable of speeds in excess of 180 mph and feels like any other race car. At least once you have done a spin or two on the racing line!

Enjoy!
