Item no.: SICA28F
For the 1989 season, rather than relying again on chassis built by March, Nissan had developed the R89C model in conjunction with Lola. The car featured a kevlar and carbon-fiber based monocoque chassis fitted with Nissan's new twin-turbo VRH35 3.5L V8 DOHC engine, which was mounted in a stressed installaton for better chassis rigidity, delivering up to950bhp.
Despite Nissan's efforts, the 1989 World Sportscar Championship season was rather unsuccessful for Nissan, as their cars lacked reliability and speed. The beautifgul R89C was only able to score points in three races and finished the season in firth place in the championship for teams.
This model ran at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1990, driven by H.Regout, C.Los and A.Cudini.
