Nissan creates world's biggest Zorb With a car inside

Nissan has created the world's biggest Zorb - a giant inflatable ball measuring six meters in diameter and more than 18 in.

The two-storey high ball was constructed to promote Nissan's Safety Shield technology featured on the Note  the small, popular family car.

Nicknamed the 'CarZorb', the colossal structure was successfully rolled down a course of steep hills for a two-minute film released today.

Originating in New Zealand, Zorbing sees thrill seekers roll downhill inside an orb made of sturdy inflatable plastic. The Zorb is usually made of two inflatable layers, shielding the individual inside from outside dangers.

Nissan's CarZorb took more than two months to build and weighs more than a tonne.

The CarZorb was designed to visually represent the manufacturer's Safety Shield technology  a suite of driver assistance technology to alert motorists to potential hazards.

The stunt comes on the first anniversary of the Note which features lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Moving Object Detection combine to form the Nissan Safety Shield. It is powered by 360 Around View Monitor technology which relies on the unique self-cleaning rear camera.

Bastien Schupp, Vice President Strategy & Marketing, said: "The Nissan Note has been carefully engineered to provide motorists with a whole range of technology that creates a protective bubble around you and your car. Our Safety Shield technology in particular is unrivalled amongst other small family cars.

"Creating a life size CarZorb to highlight the technology is an exciting and memorable way of reminding people about the benefits of Nissan's Safety Shield."
