Zydrunas Savickas, 5 time World Strongest Man champion endured another strongman test with a single attempt to set the new Zydrunas Savickas record. Using a specialised pulling harness and rope arrangement, he pulled the 12 Nissan Notes over 5 metres in 32.9 seconds.

The world record attempt was held in Druskininkai, Lithuania, and marks the end of Lithuanian Car of the Year test camp. Guinness World Records representative Jack Brockbank presented him an official certificate.

Built at Nissan’s UK, Sunderland plant, new Note was launched earlier in 2013. Note’s Pure Drive 1.2-litre 98 PS supercharged petrol engine with manual transmission improves CO2 emission (99g/km).

“We at Nissan like setting records and are always aiming high. Today we are delighted to have been able to help Zydrunas set another world record and to see so many people turn out to support him; it was a great way to mark the end of the Lithuanian COTY camp,” said Taina Erkkilä, Communication Director of Nissan Nordic Europe.

Savickas said “It is always great to set a new record, once I got into my stride pulling the 12 Nissan Notes was fine. Obviously, a big thank you to Nissan for helping me set the record and making it all possible.”

This is Nissan’s 2nd Guinness World Record record book entry this year. In August, Nissan helped the Electric Vehicle Union and the Norwegian EV Assocation set a new Record when 260½ (including the Nissan Half LEAF) electric vehicles were driven in unison.
