Nissan ZEOD RC crash test – slow motion video

Ahead of Le Mans, Nissan tested the strength of the ZEOD RC in the event of a crash.

ROLLE, Switzerland – Le Mans 24 hour is just round the corner, and the ZEOD RC has been tested to destruction before the race.

The carbon fiber tub and nose were put through their paces at a testing facility to make sure the car meets FIA regulations.

Entering this year's race in "Garage 56," the Nissan ZEOD RC will take the additional grid slot reserved by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest for cars showcasing new and innovative technology. Nissan is using the ZEOD RC program as a development platform for its planned LM P1 class debut in 2015.

Three-time Japanese Super GT champion Satoshi Motoyama will join Nissan GT Academy winners Lucas Ordóñez and Wolfgang Reip as the driver line-up for the revolutionary electric Nissan ZEOD RC at this year's Le Mans 24 Hours.
