This R/C model depicts the prototype version of the FF layout Nissan GT-R. Its official name and designation is the GT-R LM Nismo. The sports prototype racing car is built by the Nissan Motor Company and their motorsports division Nismo. Designed for the Le Mans Prototype 1 Hybrid (LMP1-H) regulations of the FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GT-R LM is unique amongst Le Mans Prototypes because it utilizes a front mid-engine layout for its internal combustion engine as opposed to the rear mid-engine layout used by nearly all other competitors in the category. It is Nissan's first prototype since the R391 competed in 1999. The car is branded after the Nissan GT-R road car and shares similar engine and drivetrain configurations, but is not related to the sports car. The GT-R LM Nismo program was announced on May 23, 2014. The Tamiya RC rendition faithfully captures all of the real subject nuances and sleek body form.
