Nissan is already known worldwide for their bold, consistently reliable automobiles, and now the automaker has added another product to their lineup, by creating the first ever seven-seat bobsleigh.

The Nissan seven-seat bobsleigh was inspired by the seven-seat X-Trail SUV, which goes by the Nissan Rogue in U.S. markets. Fittingly, the bobsleigh is being called the X-Trail Bobsleigh, after the vehicle.

The model made its first ever run at an Austrians Olympic track, led by British Olympic medalist Sean Olsson. A video of the historic moment can be watched here, thanks to Nissan Europe’s YouTube channel.

Though it takes some time to get there, the X-Trail Bobsleigh can eventually reach speeds of up to 65 mph, without an engine. This carefully crafted machine can get there based purely on gravity.
