Nissan GT-R LM Nismo at Jay Leno's Garage
We have already written a lot about the fantastic and innovative Nissan GT-R LM Nismo. It has been widely recognised as one of the most interesting race cars today and one of the most forward thinking race cars in history.
With its unique combination of technology, front wheel drive and dynamics, the Nissan is everybody’s favorite car at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. However, with this enormous innovation comes a set of problems and challenges. Since the introduction, Nissan has had some hard times getting the car to run to its optimal level and didn’t have a very good Le Mans testing session. However, the entire team and the racing audiences are hopeful that GT-R LM Nismo’s time is going to come. And to come soon.
That is why, Nissan’s new race car has found its way into Jay Leno’s Garage. For those who don’t know, Jay Leno is a retired comedian and talk show host and has one of biggest and best car collections in the world. Leno has a weekly youtube show where he features some of the most interesting cars from all around the world.
He also recognized the Nissan GT-R LM Nissmo as something very special and dedicated the latest episode to the car. As Jay Leno couldn’t drive the car by himself, there was a clip where Nissan’s driver Jann Mardenborough drove the car on the tracks and explained the interesting technical bits. The video is well worth the watch and explains a lot about new race car. Watch it and enjoy!
