Ever seen a four-wheel car drive on two wheels for a whole mile? Probably not, until now…
Driving up 1.16-mile hill climb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed is challenging enough to begin with, but it gets even more difficult if you decide to attempt the feat on only two wheels. British stuntman Terry Grant did just that, setting a new world record in a Nissan Juke Nismo RS — and breaking the record he set at Goodwood in 2011.
Grant drove two of the Nissan Juke Nismo RS’s wheels up a ramp and managed to continue driving the sporty crossover on two wheels all the way to the end of the course. He finished in 2 minutes, 10 seconds, setting a new world record for the fastest mile traveled by a four-wheel car on two wheels. That breaks Grant’s own record of 2 minutes, 55 seconds, which he set at Goodwood in 2011 in another Nissan Juke. (The outright record at Goodwood’s hill climb, incidentally, is 41.6 seconds and was set in a McLaren MP4-13 racing car in 1999.)
