180 Nissan Patrols Drive in the Shape of a Dancing Falcon


New accolade is the third GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title broken by the iconic Nissan Patrol, and the sixth awarded to Nissan Middle East


Cairo, Egypt: 08 November 2018 – The Nissan Patrol has broken another GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest Synchonised Car Dance. This award recognises the activation which has the greatest number of cars moving in unison within a formation. A total of 180 Nissan Patrols took part in the record attempt, driving in a synchronised routine in the shape of a giant desert falcon. This new accolade is the third time the iconic Nissan Patrol has achieved a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title.


Nissan Patrol beat the previous world record holders by 36 cars. Led by international racing driver Axcil Jefferies, two concentric lines of cars drove in opposite directions around the outline of a falcon, a total distance of 1,476 meters. The shape formed by the 180 Nissan Patrols taking part in the attempt measured 176.5 metres by 225 metres. Viewed from above, the activation looked like a giant falcon in flight over the sands of the Arabian desert. This award is the third time the iconic Nissan Patrol has broken a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title.


This award is the third time the iconic Nissan Patrol has broken a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. In September 2015, the car broke the record for the fastest ascent of a 100 metre sand dune by a car, scaling the dune in a rapid 4.9 seconds. The first title was achieved in August 2013, when the Nissan Patrol successfully towed the world’s heaviest aircraft for more than 164 feet (50 meters) at Sharjah International Airport in the UAE.


The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS official attempt was also a celebration of three new editions that have been added to the Nissan Patrol family this month. Launched in response to popular demand, the Patrol Safari Falcon, Gazelle and Gazelle-X were developed for and are exclusively available to customers in the Middle East. The names of the new cars also inspired the shape formed during the record-breaking synchronised car dance.



The Nissan Patrol range has an enduring popularity in the Middle East.  In Nissan Middle East’s Financial Year 17 (April 2016 – March 2017), market share of the entire Nissan Patrol range increased by 11.4 percent compared to the previous year, with the Patrol becoming the best-selling full-size SUV in the UAE.


Nissan Middle East’s new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title is the sixth to have been achieved by the company, with three of these being awarded to the iconic Patrol. Most recently, Nissan Middle East sped into the record books after driver Masato Kawabata (Japan) achieved the fastest ever vehicle drift. Kawabata reached staggering 304.96 km/h (189.49 mi/h), while driving a Nissan GT-R Nismo during an event at Fujairah International Airport in April 2016.
