Warm-Up Lap: Nissan GT-R LM NISMO Stops By Leno’s Garage

There are few people on the planet as enthusiastic or knowledgeable about automobiles as Jay Leno. The comedian and talk show host has spawned an entire industry around his incredible car collection, and major automakers go out of their way to bring their latest and greatest creations to his garage, including the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO hybrid race car.

We’ve already spilled a lot of ink on NIssan’s cutting-edge, 1,250 horsepower hybrid Le Mans racer, from the reason it’s front-wheel drive to what it looks like without the fancy bodywork. There’s a lot of really cool stuff talked about in this video that only adds to what we already know, as well as things that haven’t been discussed at all yet. It’s the culmination of all those funky radical racing designs Nissan has trotted out of the past few years, and everybody is expecting big things from the GT-R LM.

Check the video out, it’s worth the almost 25 minutes if you’re as hyped up by this new breed of Le Mans racer as I am.
