The NISMO GT-R LM Road Going Version '95 is a tuned car produced by Nissan's in-house tuning and motorsports firm: Nismo. It was a detuned, race-ready homologation model of its racing counterpart that competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. While available in unlimited numbers in Gran Turismo games, only one model of the car exists in real life. It appears in every main Gran Turismo game to date except Gran Turismo Sport.
"The street version of the Le Mans GT-R, of which only 1 was ever made."
This street-legal Nismo GT-R LM is one rare bird: When Nismo decided to compete in the GT category of the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995, the rules for the class stipulated that at least one road-worthy example must be built of a given model, thus a single, ultra-wide bodied Nismo GT-R LM was built and registered in the United Kingdom. Perhaps just as astounding, while the production Skyline GT-R had long featured all-wheel drive, this solo homologation special feature rear-wheel drive only, just like the Le Mans competition cars.
Apart from its outlandishly-styled exterior and reconfigured drive system, this road-going Nismo GT-R LM is surprisingly docile in just about every other area. The RB26DETT-designed engine produced 305 PS, on par with the standard production car unit; even the interior remained nearly unchanged. But the bodywork was a different story: All four fenders were widened by 50 mm to accommodate wider tires for improved grip, and hood vents and a wide-mouth front clip allowed for more efficient removal of hot air from the engine compartment.
As for the car's competition brethren, the GT-R entered into the GT class of the 1995 and 1996 editions of the French endurance classic encountered mixed results, the 450-PS maiden effort finishing a respectable 5th in class, with the vastly more potent 630-PS car landing 10th in class the following year.
