TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - World's strongest man sets world record by pulling 12 Nissan Notes

Five-time "World's Strongest Man" titleholder Zydrunas Savickas has recently set a new Guinness World Record by pulling 12 Nissan Notes that weigh a total of 12,941kg to claim the "Most Cars Pulled By One Man" feat.

Wearing a specialized pulling harness and rope arrangement, Savickas only needed a single attempt to set the record by pulling the 12 cars over five meters in 32.9 seconds.

"We at Nissan like setting records and are always aiming high," said Nissan Nordic Europe communications director Taina Erkkila. "Today, we are delighted to have been able to help Zydrunas set another world record, and to see so many people turn out to support him."

According to Nissan, Savickas's record attempt is the second time in 2013 that the Japanese carmaker has entered the record books. In August, Nissan reportedly helped the Electric Vehicle Union and the Norwegian EV Association set a new Guinness World Record when 260 electric vehicles were driven in unison, the majority of which were Nissan Leafs.
