The road boasts no less than 21 corners and three lanes, with a total distance of 11.7 kilometers at a height of 1219 meters. The showcased GT-R will be driven by Mohamed Ben Sulayem, a popular rally driver in the Middle East.
"The Nissan GT-R enjoys legendary status in the Middle East, so we decided it would be most fitting to create a memorable and challenging event for the car's launch," said Atsuo Kosaka, NMEF's managing director. "The GT-R Jebel Hafeet Challenge will showcase this remarkable car's dynamic ability in the hands of our region's most successful rally driver. It will be fascinating to see how quickly the GT-R can ascend the mountain and set a benchmark time."
In order to achieve the best results during the aforementioned program, Nissan conducted a series of test on the Dubai Autodrome, a 5.39 kilometers circuit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the company said in a statement for the press.
"The Jebel Hafeet mountain is the UAE's most challenging stretch of road, and it will be a fine test of the GT-R's power, performance and poise," said driver Sulayem.
