Nissan’s reverse world record bid

Nissan will attempt to break in to the Guinness World Records – in reverse.

The Japanese brand will use the infamous hillclimb circuit at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK to attempt to set the fastest time over a distance of one mile (1.6km) in the Leaf electric hatchback.

Because the Leaf sends its power directly from the electric motor to the wheels, Nissan says it should be able to go as fast backwards as it can forwards – well, almost, because its humpy rear-end is expected to be slightly less aerodynamic the sleeker nose.

Stunt driving professional Terry Grant will be at the wheel of the Leaf when it backs its way up the Goodwood hillclimb, and he says he expects it to be a big challenge.
