The Nissan R390 GT1 was a racing car built for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997 and 1998. It was built to race under the grand tourer style rules, requiring a homologated road version to be built, although this was never sold.

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.

Twin turbo V8, cool

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.
