World's Fastest Pumper



Created for the Nurburgring race track in Germany, this Nissan GT-R can reach speeds of 193 miles per hour, and can lap the 13 mile track in less than 8 minutes.  Traditional fire engines were taking too long to respond to accidents on the track, so this car was especially outfitted for the job.



Features include:
  • 13 gallon water/foam tank (2 minutes of firefighting capability)
  • 65 foot hose, with reel
  • emergency radio communications system
  • equipment bay area
