Watch the 750HP Nissan Zeod RC Burn Up The 'Top Gear' Track [Video]
The Nissan Zeod RC is a hybrid race car that was designed to complete a full lap at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. While it might have managed to pull off the feat in practice, it sadly didn't fare as well on race day. After less than an hour on the track, the Zeod ran into transmission troubles that forced it to withdraw. You might think that was the end of the line for this hybrid and its fancy tech, but it's really just the start. RELATED: See More Photos of the Incredible 2013 Nissan ZEOD RC
Nissan is not giving up on their plans for a Le Mans racer and will be introducing the GT-R LM sometime next year. Details on this car are pretty much nonexistent, but it's a good bet that what they learned in building the ZEOD, and maybe even some of its technology, could find its way into this new car.
Top Gear is giving us all a better look at just what the ZEOD can do with their magazine editor, Ollie Marriage, taking it for a spin around the track. Sadly, it's not the Stig, but the sight is no less impressive. They've actually produced two different videos to showcase the car's capabilities. One video is the usual beautiful Top Gear video of the car going around the track. The other is filmed from inside the car's cockpit so you see the slightly terrifying view out over the car's pointy nose.

Either way you look at it, this car is quite a ride.
