Meet The Restored And Road-Registered Nissan R390 GT1, A Le Mans Finisher With License PlatesErik Comas raced for the factory NISMO team during 1997 and 1998, and now more than two decades later he is driving his very own Nissan R390 GT1 on the street. The car only clocked 5000km (nearly all at Le Mans), but the team behind its restoration and road-legal conversion still performed a two-year-long full nut-and-bolt restoration. The objective was to make the car road legal while preserving as much of its Le Mans racing DNA as possible. Erikโ€™s Nissan retained 95% of its original Le Mans parts, but door panels, a glass windshield, steel brake discs, a cooling system, and a minimum of upholstery were installed to comply with road regulations. The custom-made seat brackets, which form the shape of the carโ€™s front grill opening, represent the attention to detail that went into this project. So, what does one do with a bonafide GT1 car with license plates? We like Erikโ€™s plan: for the 100th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans next year, he plans to drive the R390 from his home to the event, on motorways, backroads, and everything in between.Find the full story and gallery by Mate Boer ( at Petrolicious.comLink in bio#Nissan #Nismo #NissanR390 #NissanR390GT1 #LeMans #GT1cars #GT1 #GTcars #HomologationSpecials #VilladEste #Italy #TWR #24HoursofLeMans #Petrolicious #DriveTastefully #Supercars #ModernClassics #1990s #1990sCars
