Tamiya Model Cars 1/24 Nissan R89C #23 Calsonic Race Car Kit
This is a model kit of the Nissan R89C, which raced on the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1989. The full size car, which is faithfully reproduced in 1/24 scale was powered by a 3,496cc V8 DOHC turbocharged engine capable of 800hp. The aerodynamic body shape reduced drag and provided smooth airflow to the oil cooler and turbo inter-cooler. The R89C demonstrated superb performance but all three were ultimately forced to retire during the course of the 1989 24 Hours of Le Mans.
