Chassis: 90-10
Originally built as chassis 90-02, this Nissan NPT-90 was raced extensively by the NPTI team during the 1990 and 1991 seasons. In 1992, it served mainly as a spare car but when pressed into service, it was involved in one of the massive shunts at Road Atlanta. The remains were acquired by Matrix Motors, who rebuilt the car with spare chassis 90-10 to its original specifications. In 1993 the car was one of two NPT-90s used by the late Gianpiero Moretti with the legendary Derek Bell as his co-driver. Together with John Paul Jr., the experience pairing finished second in that year's Sebring 12 Hours.

Following its contemporary racing career the car passed through the hands of Pete Racely and Peter Stoneberg before it was sold to a British enthusiast. He campaigned the car for several years in the Historic Group C Championship. Today the car is fitted with a twin-cam, 2.7 litre engine, which is good for a reliable 670 bhp in race trim. The current owner acquired the car in 2012 and has since raced the Phil Stott Motorsport prepared Nissan at various events including the Group C support race of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
