Nissan has gone and built the world’s first seven-seater bobsleigh… why? Well, why the hell not?!

Nissan has challenged convention with the launch of the world’s first seven-seater bobsleigh in Innsbruck, Austria.
Nissan worked with bobsleigh experts to transform a traditional four-man sled into an X-Trail inspired seven-seater capable of reaching speeds of over 60mph pulling a G-force of 4.5G. Darryl Scriven, Design Manager Nissan Design Europe (NDE), teamed up with expert bobsled manufacturer Diego Menardi and sport expert Ian Richardson to morph car design with Olympic aerodynamics.
Ian Richardson and Diego Menardi have more than 50 years of combined experience in the industry, delivering Olympic track experiences and sleighs to winning teams across the globe.
