1986 Nissan R86V

Mounting a VG30 twin-turbo engine in a March 86G chassis, the R86V was a machine developed for the 1986 racing season. One special feature was its side radiators that improved its aerodynamics. Its debut race was the 1986 Le Mans (K. Hoshino, K. Matsumoto, A. Suzuki), though it was forced to retire. It also served K. Hoshino and K.Takahashi in an endurance series in Japan.
