Watch: Bloke Drives A Nissan GT-R With A PS4 Controller

It’s one thing to get behind the wheel of a Nissan GT-R. It’s an entirely different animal to flog it through a race track using a PS4 controller. Yes, you heard right. A PlayStation 4 controller. In the footage below, GT Academy winner, Jann Mardenborough, takes a remote-controlled Nissan GT-R around the Silverstone track while he hovers safely above in a helicopter. One can only imagine what that experience would be like firsthand. I guess watching a video of it is the only avenue to itch that scratch, regardless of how distant of a second best option it is.
