 fantastic racing car

The NPT-90 was the result of a very good racing outfit backed up by the full resources of Nissan. Nissan spent nearly $40 million per year in those days on the GTP program and the result was that they were all but untouchable. The NPT-90 looked great in the red, white and blue livery and it was devastatingly fast at the same time. The V6 turbo would give at least 750bhp during races and was rumoured to be good for 1100bhp without restrictors. However the aerodynamics were the real forte, with up to 9300 lbs of downforce at 200mph. With more than twice as much downforce as a modern sports prototype, it's no wonder it's one of the quickest closed wheel racers ever built. It was also one of the last ground-effects racing cars before spoil-sport rule changes took effect.
