The Nissan R390 GT1 n.23 is a car that competed in the 1997 Le Mans 24 Hours. With the entry of new manufacturers such as McLaren and Porsche, the GT category had a big technical evolution. The Nissan in collaboration with Tom Walkinshaw Racing, put on the track a car that was based on the use of the Nissan R90 engine of the group C.

Kazuyoshi Hoshino, Erik Comas and Masahiko Kageyama at the wheel of the Nissan R390 GT1 n.23 finished twelfth at the 24 hours of Le Mans 1997, with a gap of sixty-seven laps from the winner Michele Alboreto, Stefan Johansson, Tom Kristensen TWR-Porsche n.7.
