о дилерском центреChanging from the NISMO GT-R LM that had raced the 1995 and 1996 Le Mans 24 Hours events, Nissan responded to rapid developments in the GT1 class by investing in the R390 GT1, aiming for overall victory in the 1997 race. The R390 was developed in cooperation with Tom Walkinshaw Racing, it was a combination of a carbon monocoque chassis with a carbon composite body, fitted with a 3.5 litre twin turbo V8 VRH35L engine, an evolution of the engine used in the Nissan R89C.
The R390 GT1 showed amazing speed in pre-qualifying, and ace driver Martin Brundle knocked out the top time. However, because of a misunderstanding about regulations, TWR were forced to modify the trunk section, and due to this, difficulties arose in cooling the gearbox.
Two cars were able to grab the 4th and 12th positions in qualifying and a good performance in the race was anticipated, but trouble cooling the gearboxes forced two of the three cars entered to retire. The sole remaining team of Kazuyoshi Hoshino, Erik Comas, and Masahiko Kageyama also suffered transmission issues but finished the race in 12th place, leaving some hope for the following year.
The 1998 version of the car saw the troublesome rear end dealt with and a 13 cm longer car came back for another shot with a trio of full spec factory cars and a single 1997 spec car (with the new 1998 bodywork). All four cars would finish in the top ten with the #32 car making it onto the third step of the podium.
