2016 Nissan 370Z NISMO Donut Day

For National Donut Day, Nissan exercised a double-entendre by using a 370Z NISMO making donuts to help them make donuts. 2800 lbs of sprinkles were poured on the studio floor, and after 15 passes from the 370Z, managed to coat 325 donuts.

Sure, it's gimmicky, but the pictures are neat, and you don't have to be a physicist to appreciate thousands of candy sprinkles flying through the air through the application of a few hundred horsepower.

(from Nissan Press Release) How to make a donut, by the Nissan 370Z NISMO

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In celebration of June 3 as #NationalDonutDay, Formula Drift icon Chris Forsberg took to a production set in Southern California to put a unique spin on making donuts. Forsberg’s mission was to fling thousands of the tiny sprinkles onto more than 300 donuts using a Nissan 370Z NISMO as a utensil.

To be sure each of the cakes received ample coating, the team brought in two pallets of sprinkles weighing in at more than 2,800 pounds. Using all 350 horsepower on tap in the 370Z NISMO, Forsberg made 15 passes, ensuring a proper layer of sprinkles was achieved.

By the time it was over, more than 325 donuts and 120 boxes of sprinkles were used to create the stunt. However, the 370Z NISMO that powered the experiment proved to be the most delicious treat on the set.

Happy #DoingDonutZ, from Nissan.
