Nissan GT-R Going 183 MPH On Frozen Baikal Lake
Driven by G-Drive Racing Team pilot Roman Rusinov, the unmodified Nissan GT-R broke Russia’s ice speed record. Still, it's top speed is placed bellow the other ice world records placed by the Bentley Continental Supersports that reached 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h) or the Audi RS6 fitted with Nokian Tyres that achieved 208.6 mph (335.713 km/h).
The Baikal is a 395 mile (636 km) long rift lake located in the south of Siberia. It is the deepest and most voluminous lake in the world, measuring 5,387 ft (1,642 m) max depth and containing about 20% of the world’s unfrozen surface fresh water. Due to the region’s cold weather, the lake’s surface freezes between January and May each year.
