Filmed at an airstrip in Switzerland, the Nissan GT-R, powered by its 404kW/628Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6, comfortably demonstrates its 2.7-second 0-100km/h capability against the British-made Rolls Royce-powered Hawker Hunter – a fighter jet developed in the 1950s.

Watch the video to see the ground battle take place before the jet heads into its natural environment.
