Probably the most unusual race car of the last few years is this, the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo. In a sea of mid-engine cars, Nissan went with a front-engine layout pushing power up to the front axle. It ran at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans a couple years ago, and that’s all she wrote for this one. The program was cancelled.
Made a visit to the incredible Nissan Heritage Collection last weekend in Zama, Kanagawa; 300 Nissans under one roof.
The selection of cars is just phenomenal. Everything from road classics to Le man’s prototypes, Super GT racers to rally legends. If you visit, your time to look around freely is limited to about 40 minutes, which just isn’t enough time to look at everything. I spent most of my time there in the race car area. I will definitely need to make another visit to have a proper look at the classic and road car collection.
And as many of you probably noticed….Gran Turismo. I have to say, I’ve never seen so many cars from Gran Turismo in one place. The 90s Playstation nostalgia really started to set in.
Despite the short time I did manage to get some good shots of a few choice cars, and I’ll be uploading them soon. In the meantime here’s a few quick shots including a picture of me with a very big Nissan induced grin on my face!
