Nissan says that after its brief cameo appearance in Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX “With Dad” commercial, the new Nissan GT-R LM NISMO race car will make a two-week pit stop at the Chicago Auto Show from February 14 to 22 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
The GT-R LM NISMO, which will take on the best in the world in the race to glory at the Le Mans 24 Hours, will be the centerpiece of a performance-oriented NISMO display at the auto show.
It will also include the 600-horsepower Nissan GT-R NISMO, the 370Z NISMO, JUKE NISMO and JUKE NISMO RS and two concept vehicles, the Sentra NISMO Concept and a new NISMO street concept that will debut February 12.
The GT-R LM NISMO has been created by a team of experts in Japan, the United States and Europe. Unlike other LM P1 cars, 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.
