Nissan has set a new Guinness World Record for towing the heaviest airplane in the world with a standard production vehicle.

The vehicle in question was a mighty Nissan Patrol that – due to it being reserved for Middle East and American markets - features an equally monstrous 5.6-litre V8 engine that develops 400bhp and 560Nm torque.
