Today we talk about rare cars and limited model cars. Yes, we talk about the Nissan R390 GT1 car produced in 1997 and only for the needs of racing, the 24-hour endurance test.
When talking about artistic value, this car clearly does not have at all that beauty, even though this car is in the category of a supercar but lacks aesthetic value. But for cars in the year 97 it must be the dream of the racers to be able to appear at the race with him.
But for collectors, this car clearly wants to be owned and collected. Aside from being the most rational outlet because this model car is the last generation of metal diecast models from Autoart, so rumors. Autoart is the one who came to quench the thirst of collectors all over the world. Comes on a scale of 18 and also with an extraordinary level of detail. All sectors can be translated very well.
The sector that is the most superior among all of the models for the Nissan R390 GT1 cars is the engine parts. Here each part is highlighted all without exception, starting from the body engine, cables, shock breakers, hooks, pipes and all that are united in it. Even the tires with the type of rubber racing for dry race.
Do not forget the roll bar is also embedded in this model car. Here, too, is clearly visible in the retro racing style steering wheel. But there is one question here, namely what lever is next to the right seat, is that a handbreak? Maybe if any of you are indeed a racer, can you help explain it.
Well now we continue the story a little about the action of the Nissan R390 GT1 in the real world. The Nissan R390 GT1 was built in Atsugi Japan in 97. It was only produced by two pieces, and one of them was stored at the Zuma Nissan facility. This car has a maximum speed of 220 mph. This car uses a 3.5L VRH25Z V8 engine that comes from the Nissan R89C which is further developed into a 3.5L VRH25L engine.
Mechanical design and aerodynamics is done by Tony Southgate who is also a Jaguar XJR-9 designer and Yutaka Hagiwara from Nissan. The result of this collaboration is quite sweet, which is able to put the Nissan R390 GT1 in the top ten in the 24 hours race of Le Mans.
Obviously this is a remarkable achievement for Japanese cars in the prestigious 24 hours of Le Mans, which is dominated by European cars such as Mercedes, BMW and Porsche.
