The car's red, blue and white livery resembles that of the #22 car driven by Hideo Fukuyama, Masahiko Kondo, and Shunji Kasuya, and the white and pink livery resembles that of the #23 car driven by Kazuyoshi Hoshino, Toshio Suzuki, and Masahiko Kageyama. Both cars participated in the GT1 class of the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans. The car #22 finished the race in 10th place overall, achieving the 5th place in its class, while the car #23 failed to finish the race.
This car is available in these two color schemes:
- White/Blue/Red (#22)
- White/Pink (#23)
In GT2, unusually, the thumbnails do not match the car's actual colors.
This car can be purchased in the special section of the Nissan dealership for 500,000 Credits.
No longer available as a separate car, this car can be obtained only by performing racing modifications on an ordinary NISMO GT-R LM Road Going Version '95 for 85,000 Credits. By default, this car is obtainable only on the PAL and NTSC versions of the game, since the NISMO GT-R LM Road Going Version '95 was accidentally omitted from the Special Model option in the Japanese version of the game (however, it can still be obtained using a cheat device, then the car can be race modified).
- The reason behind the appearance of this car as a racing modification of the NISMO GT-R LM Road Going Version '95 in Gran Turismo 2 is due to the inclusion of both the Nissan Kure R33 Skyline GT (JGTC) '97 and the Nissan ZEXEL Skyline GT (JGTC) '97 as separate cars in said game. Considering that the racing modifications of the NISMO GT-R LM Road Going Version '95 in the original Gran Turismo closely resembles these two cars, this fact could be considered true.
