Rarest road-going Godzilla was born in 1995 to meet Le Mans regulation!
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.
Engine and drivetrain: the power of 2.6 liter RB26DETT twin-turbocharged Inline-6 GT-R originally generating 305 horsepower which display the fact that they are not 280 horsepower. Drive system is not four-wheel-drive E-TS, it is modified to FR.
Body: 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.
The interior is also remained nearly unchanged but an Alcantara Nismo racing steering wheel. The low wide body below arming the form ***24439; ***20315 chassis.

How is it road going? Well, on the track this car is slower then original R33 GT-R, because of weight, FR drive. The maximum speed is also reduced by great aorodynamic elements. Nevertheless, it can fly into the high speed corners with more stability and less understeering.
