Item no.: SICA05F
The Nissan R390 T1 was a racing car built to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hors in 1997 and 1998. The car was developed by Nismo (Nissan Motor Sport) and TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing). Powered by a 3.5 liter, biturbo, load-carrying engine rated at 600 hp, the chassis was a carbon fiber derivation of the TWR designed Jaguar XJR15. In 1995, three cars with #21, #22 and #23 (23 is NiSan in Japanese) were entered by Nissan Motor Sport with undeniably serious ambitions. The R390 driven by Martin Brundle was the fastest of the whole lot in pre-qualifying and it was very fast in qualifying too. The race, however, turned into a together different story and the only surviving car at the end of the 24 hrs came in 12th overall.
