Nissan R390 Paper Model

The Nissan R390 GT1 was a mid-engined super car built in Atsugi, Japan. It was designed primarily to gain a suitable racing entry in 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. Therefore, the R390 was built originally as production road car, then a racing version of the car was developed after. Only two R390 road cars were ever built. One was sold through a private auction, without any record, and the other one is stored at Nissan's Zama facility. The road car was capable of 220 mph, which initially surpassed the Jaguar XJ220 and RUF CTR2 in 1997, but was shortly superseded by the McLaren F1's 241 mph record in 1998.
