1992 Nissan NP35

With a change in vehicle regulations, turbochargers were banned from Group C cars from 1993 onwards. In response, Nissan developed a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter engine, mounting it in the NP35 (JSPC specifications) and P35 (US IMSA specifications). However, with the cancellation of the World Championship, Nissan suspended its racing activities and this NP35 only made one appearance in the All Japan Championship.
