Didn't quite work out during the '97 24 hours of Le Mans with most of the cars retiring.

'98 worked out a bit better with all 4 cars finishing and being competitive. Highest finish was 3rd. I give it a cool.

I felt like I really should've voted cool for this but I just couldn't bring myself to do it somehow. Neutral.

If the road cars were sold it would have gotten a cool. As it stands, homologating a car, only to keep the road cars, or worse yet, scrap them, is seriously uncool.

From what I recall two R390 road versions were built. One is owned by some collector in Japan and the other is in the Nissan museum.
