After its quick cameo in Nissan’s “With Dad” Super Bowl commercial, Nissan has announced that the GT-R LM NISMO race car will make a two-week pit stop at the Chicago Auto Show this month. Before the GT-R LM NISMO competes in the Le Mans 24 Hours race, it will be part of Nissan’s NISMO display at the show.
Unlike its other LM P1 rivals, the GT-R’s V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo gasoline engine sits in the front of the front-wheel-drive car, while the hybrid power is harvested from the front driveline 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.”
