Nissan R390 Road car/website editing

Today, I am posting a truely historical car. The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car, and the LM Version of the car. In 1995, than C.E.O. Marvin Travis Runyon got together with Nismo with the idea of a car that could compete, and win in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The idea went into consideration, and the Nissan R390 GT1 Race Car was introduced in June 1997.

The car first competed in the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it finished 12th. Four entries were in the 1998 24 hour race, each finished 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 10th. One entry was in the 1999 race, along with it’s successor the Nissan R391 GT1 Race Car. The R390 crashed in the fifth hour and finished 28th. The R391 finished 8th after an early engine problem. The R390 was then retired from racing.

Nissan also made two Nissan R390 GT1 Road Cars. One in blue, and one in a special white LM Edition. The LM Edition model was sent to storage in Nissan’s Zama Warehouse. The blue model was baught in 2002 by an anonymous Nissan Enthusiast. Here are the available pictures of the R390 that I have for you.

The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car and Race Car were featured in the racing games, Gran Turismos 34, and 5. The Nissan R390 Road Car had a TwinTurbocharged Nissan V8 Engine that generated 502 horsepower, it’s topspeed was 220 mph. The LM Edition had a Nissan DOHC V12 Engine that had 671 horsepower, and it’s fastest speed is estimated at 255 mph. Only the Regular GT1 Road Car is streetlegal. Thank-you for reading, goodbye. 🙂
