You probably wouldn't need to do it every day if you owned one, but it's good to know that Nissan's tough Patrol can tow a plane.

As part of the Middle East's Nissan Patrol Challenge grand finale, the large SUV that's built for the region, set a Guinness World Record.

The Nissan Patrol Y62 became the holder of the "heaviest object pulled by any production vehicle" Guinness World Record and notched up another historic milestone.

The event, held at Sharjah International Airport, United Arab Emirates, saw an unmodified production Nissan Patrol haul a 170.9 tonne cargo plane, inclusive of the weight of the plane, the fuel and the cargo for over 50 metres, smashing the previous record by 15 tonnes.
