Nissan developed the 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO to be the pinnacle of the iconic nameplate.
For maximum performance, the engine was upgraded, its aerodynamics further enhanced, and weight was shed through the meticulous use of exotic materials.
But when the time came to document the newest Nissan super sports car in its natural habitat – on the track – there was one problem.
How to film it?
Enter Mauro Calo.
A professional precision driver and automotive video expert known for his work on big-budget blockbuster movies and automotive TV shows, he has the perfect car to chase and film the 2020 GT-R NISMO – another GT-R.
While Nissan helped locate a suitable GT-R to be transformed into a purpose-built camera car, Calo was already working on the design.
Once the car arrived, he and his team fitted a bespoke tubular structure that was welded to the chassis and able to hold the weight of the professional carbon-fiber gimbal camera mounting system.
