Nissan Leaf sets world record for fastest car in reverse

Stunt driver Terry Grant made Ricky Bobby proud, averaging 55 mph over three miles.

At the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, a Nissan Leaf drove backward into the pages of history, setting a world record for fastest car driven over a measured mile in reverse.

Stunt driver Terry Grant broke the record on his first attempt last Friday, then shaved 26 seconds off that time during a run on Saturday. Grant’s best time was 1 minute, 37.02 seconds.

The Goodwood course is about three miles long, so Grant averaged about 55 mph in reverse on the record-setting run.

With its 92 mph top speed and glacial 0 to 60 mph time of 10.0 seconds, the Leaf doesn’t seem like the best choice for any sort of speed record. However, its electric motors made the Nissan EV the perfect car for the job.
