Watch: Honda battle in stunning 360 degrees revolutionary video

Published 04/12/2015

A revolutionary new filming technique has allowed people to "ride shotgun" in a promotional video for Honda.

The car manufacturer brings together its production and race vehicles to show off the new technology.

The breakthrough technique captures all the action in 360 degrees.

Using multiple cameras, you can ride shotgun alongside World Touring Car stars Gabriele Tarquini in his Civic Type R, and Tiago Monteiro in his Castrol Honda Civic Touring Car, as they power around the Italy's Circuito Tazio Nuvolari.

Tarquini is joined by British Touring cars stars Gordon Shedden, Matt Neal, and Jack Clarke in a quartet of gleaming Type Rs as they attempt to hold off a rampaging Monteiro and 2015 LCR Honda MotoGP star Jack Miller on his Honda RC213V.

As the action unfolds the viewer can watch from any angle by either dragging their mouse around the screen, or if watching on mobile, by moving the device around - giving an added exhilarating dimension to the viewer experience.
