This is the story of a very ambitious project, started from the idea of a former F1 driver and multiple 24h Le Mans finisher: Erik Comas.

Erik drove the works R390 GT1 at Le Mans in 1997 and 1998, while in 1999 the project has been stopped, and this incredible car has been kept in Nissan museum since then.

The car has been brought back to Europe, and the rebuild/restoration activities started, focusing preservation of the original specs, while slight and reversible modifications were applied to create a street legal version of this Le Mans beast.

In cooperation with Chiavenuto Prototipi and Carrozzeria Crestani, we performed a full vehicle 3d scan, the outcome has been used to perform a multitude of activities, to name a few:

  • Carbon tub reverse engineering;

  • Glazing design & development;

  • Safety equipment definition and installation (with bespoke interfaces)

  • Aero upgrade (front splitter design and rear wing + brackets and end plate relocation)

  • Door cards design & development

  • Cockpit ventilation system development

  • Cockpit restoration and customization

  • Project management

The car then made her first public appearance after the restoration at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in 2022.
