Has a top speed of approximately 115 mph.

Nissan has unveiled its new GT-R Drone which is being billed as "one of the fastest accelerating First Person View racing drones in the world."

Designed to keep up with the 2017 Nissan GT-R, the GT-R Drone was developed by World Drone Prix Champions Tornado XBlades Racing.  It features a Sky-Hero quadcopter frame, a 1,400 milliampere hour lithium polymer battery, and four propellers that are powered by 2,000 kilovolt XNova motors.

Thanks to this setup, the drone can accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 1.3 seconds before hitting a top speed of approximately 115 mph.  The drone can easily beat the GT-R off the line but the story changes at higher speeds as the car tops out at 195 mph.

In an effort to showcase the drone's potential, Nissan took it to the Silverstone circuit where it raced alongside a GT-R being driving by Ricardo Sanchez.  As you can see in the video, the GT-R Drone is amazingly quick and responsive.  Given its high-performance, Nissan enlisted 2015 British National Drone Racing champion James Bowles to pilot the model.
