Nissan Leaf creates new Guinness World Record [Video]

Nissan has gained the title of the world’s Largest Glow-in-the-Dark Painting by using the Glow-in-the-Dark Nissan LEAF to paint a 207.68m2 self-portrait of the all-electric car.

The work was created by motoring artist Ian Cook of Popbangcolour, using the full-size Nissan LEAF to spread strategically placed pools of glow-in-the-dark paint across the canvas with its tyres to create the image.

The painting, which took over 61 hours to create, was used more than 60 litres of luminous acrylic paint, on a giant PVC coated canvas.

The innovative finish applied to the Nissan LEAF absorbs UV energy and other visible radiation during daylight hours and glows for between eight and ten hours when the sun goes down; making it the ideal tool for the glow-in-the-dark painting.
