NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today has just announced that following its appearance in last Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX “With Dad” commercial, the new Nissan Gt-R LM NISMO race car will be appearing at the Chicago Auto Show from February 14th to 22nd at McCormick Place, located in Chicago.
During the Le Mans 24 Hours, the GT-R LM NISMO will be racing against the best in the world, and will be the centerpiece of a performance-oriented NISMO display at the auto show. This display will include a 600-horsepower NISSAN GT-R NISMO, the 370Z NISMO, JUKE NISMO and JUKE NISMO RS, as well as two concept vehicles – the Sentra NISMO Concept and a new NISMO street concept that will debut February 12th. 2015.
A team of carefully selected experts in Japan, the United States and Europe were the creators behind the GT-R LM NISMO – truly a global effort. Uniquely, the GT-R’s V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo gasoline engine is placed in the front of the front-wheel-drive car, while the front driveline harvests hybrid power to augment acceleration.
“LM P1 cars are the most extreme sports cars in racing today so, for Nissan and NISMO, the opportunity to innovate at the highest level could not be missed,” said Darren Cox, Global Head of Brand, Marketing & Sales, NISMO. “Taking on the best in the world and competing to win is a daunting task for Nissan. The competition is well-established and the racing in the FIA World Endurance Championship is ultra-close, but this is a challenge that Nissan has accepted and the Nissan NISMO team will fight like it has never fought before.”
