Profile

The ultra-rare Nissan 390R was basically a detuned Le Mans racer offered for sale to the public at a hefty $1,000,000. Only two were made and it is unclear whether any of them were actually sold (one currently resides in Nissan's own museum).

Produced in the UK by Jaguar specialists TWR, the R390's Le Mans theme continued in the car's carbon fibre and kevlar construction, sequential gearchange and spartan racecar interior.

Like its contemporaries from Mercedes, Porsche and Chrysler, the Nissan was one of a handful of short run homologation specials designed purely to satisfy entry regulations into GT racing, their functionality as road cars being of secondary concern.
