The Museum of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of the unmissable
if you visit the Circuit de La Sarthe, the entire time between their four walls
gather a hundred vehicles are part of the history of the race.
Although it is usual that the vehicles exhibited are the winners of the test,
some of your categories, or have an important role to be associated to a
manufacturer, pilot, or some important fact, on this occasion, the new member
the museum does not meet any of these milestones. it Is a unit of the Nissan
GT-R LM NISMO.
it Is clear that the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO will not go to the
history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, or if it does, will be the protagonist of
one of the failures of the most notorious of the modern era of the race. The excess of
innovation was the cross of a prototype that had a muscle advertising more
important for your own performance. In fact, three units of the
Nissan GT-R LM NISMO took part in the edition of 2015 of the 24 Hours of Le
Mans with a disastrous outcome. The three cars were out of the race by
mechanical breakdowns or directly by failing to complete 70% of the distance of
career for his poor pace.
You could say, although it is not literal, that the Nissan GT-R LM
NISMO has occupied a niche in the Museum of the 24 Hours of Le Mans left for a
Ferrari Dino 206P Berlinetta Speciale, a prototype only that was given to the
Museum of Le Mans in 1967 by the own Sergio Pininfarina with permission of Enzo
Ferrari. Built on one of the racks 206P of competition, this
unit does not have a direct relationship with The Sarthe, although is associated to the
different Ferrari that won Le Mans in the decade of the 60’s. Their new owner
has paid 4 million euros for him.
