GT Academy’s Nissan GT-R Immortalized in Google Maps’ Street View of Silverstone Circuit

GT Academy 85 August 6, 2012 by

The famous Silverstone Circuit has just been added to Google Maps’ Street View, which now lets you virtually tour the entire length of the 3.6-mile Grand Prix course.

In an apparent hat-tip to GT Academy, the PlayStation-liveried Nissan GT-R used in the competition finals escorts the Google Maps camera around the circuit, as an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Ferrari F430 trail behind.

Watch the video above to see how the images were (quite slowly…) captured, or just check out Silverstone on Google Maps to see how it all turned out. Thanks to @PowderGuy for the tip!
