Nissan GT-R Nismo 400R Escapes from Gran Turismo

by Sam Jemielity

One of only 44 ever built, and the sole model in the UK, this Nissan GT-R Nismo 400R is automotive, and video game, royalty. Carfection’s Drew Stearne wins the lotto with the chance to drive this legend. To celebrate the appearance of the Skyline at LeMans in 1995 and 1996, Nismo built a track-focused beast—one of the cars available in the first-ever Gran Turismo – with nearly 400 hp, a carbon fiber wing, hood, and drive shaft.

While a modern-day GT-R will own this throwback Nismo on a track, the 400R doesn’t rely on state-of-the-art computer systems to keep it in line – it’s a true driver’s dream. It just may be the pinnacle of cool of the Skyline line, which bowed in 1955 and is still in use today in Japan. Enjoy the glorious views and sounds of the 400R, because given its rarity, your chances of seeing it IRL are virtually nil.
