Video: Lewis Hamilton has fun driving a Nissan GT-R R34

A priori, taking advantage of the performance of an authentic sports car, such as the legendary Nissan GT-R R34 seems rather a good idea. But one can easily imagine that it was the few images showing smoke escaping from the gearbox following the donuts that must have angered the Japanese company.

Lewis Hamilton is certainly a great driver on the circuit, his seven Formula 1 world champion titles (as many as Michael Schumacher) attest to this. The Briton loves driving single-seaters on the circuit and also has a garage of dreamy supercars. Usually he declares to drive only on circuit.

On open roads

But, in a video recently posted by the official account of Lewis Hamilton on his various social networks, we can see the pilot making an exception. The Formula 1 champion took control of a Nissan GT-R R34 on open roads. The video shows Lewis Hamilton on a Fast and Furious trip to Japan to a backdrop of electro music. We can thus see the champion at the wheel of this legendary Japanese car on the highway, but also in town.

Donuts that go wrong

The video also shows that the champion had a lot of fun performing some drifts in a good mood on an area that seems deserted. So far, so good. Except that since the publication of this video, the controversy swells about its content. Indeed, the car was not borrowed from a friend, but rented to a local hire company who didn’t really appreciate the treatment Lewis Hamilton gave the car.

Strictly forbidden

The Omoshiro Rent-a-Car company published a message on its networks indicating: “This car was not taken with the authorization of our company. Such conduct is strictly prohibited.“A priori, enjoying the performance of an authentic sports car, such as the legendary Nissan GT-R R34 seems rather a good idea. But one can easily imagine that these are the few images showing smoke coming out of the gearbox following the donuts that must have angered the Japanese company.
