Nismo GT-R GT1 (Ex-JRM World Title Winning Car)
Pit Lane Spares are incredibly proud to offer one of the most famous cars of the modern GT era and a genuine piece of motorsport history; the #23 Nismo GT-R FIA GT1 Car.
Run by JRM in its famous red and black livery, this car was the first Nissan to win a world championship, cantering to victory in the hands of Michael Krumm and Lucas Luhr.
#23 (the flagship 'ni'-'san' number) is 1 of only 5 Nissan Nismo GT1 cars produced, running throughout 2010 before being driven to 4 podium finishes in 2011 GT1 drivers’ championship to clinch the title.
Then and ever since, the car has been maintained by JRM and has toured the world representing the brand at prestigious events, including multiple appearances at the SRO Gala Awards in Paris.
The bespoke 5552cc VK56DE V8 engine sounds like nothing else on earth, transmitting 600ps and 650nm of torque through a transverse, magnesium cased Ricardo 6 speed sequential transaxle and out to the rear wheels.
Pankl uprights combine with Brembo 6 pot calipers and carbon ceramic brakes to provide stopping power to a kerb weight of 1250kg.
At 2040mm wide, this is one of the imposing vehicles of its time. Virtually everything on the car has been designed from scratch with the sole purpose of winning championships at the highest level of GT racing.
In short, this is one of the most competent and historically significant cars of an already exceptional breed of GT1 vehicles and the most desirable of the ultra-rare Nismo GT-R GT1 cars .
Now in private hands, the car is presented in superb race-ready condition after being re-prepared by JRM in the summer of 2018. With GT1 cars of this era on the rise, this famous car represents a remarkable investment opportunity and an extremely competitive package for historic racing.
