The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car '98 is a supercar built by Nissan. It appears in every main Gran Turismo game to date since Gran Turismo 2, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport.

In-game descriptionEdit

"The road-going version of the GT1 car. The only one built to fulfill[1] regulations."



Nissan chartered into unfamiliar waters when it introduced the R390 in May 1997. It was the first time the company produced a bona fide supercar.

The R390 was created primarily to satisfy homologation requirements for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which at the time specified that race vehicles must be based on general passenger cars. However, thanks to a loophole in the rules that gave any car the right to race as long as it satisfied the minimum safety equipment standards for driving on public roads, the R390 was able to compete.

Development of the R390 was conducted through a joint effort by Nissan and TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing). It shared the R390's carbon composite monocoque body and twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-8, although in the road version, output was rated at 345 HP as compared to the race car's 500. The interior was also made more appropriate for a consumer car.

The R390 received a registration number in the U.K. and was shown to public at Nissan's 24 Hours of Le Mans paddock on test day. The following year, a 1998-model road car was produced with an improved body. The price at the time was said to be over $1 million, but there is no record of one ever being sold.
