The Nissan GT-R LM NISMO is set to make history at the famously challenging 24hr Le Mans endurance race with its revolutionary front engine and front wheel drive design, making it the first of its kind to compete in the LM P1 class.

As well as its revolutionary engineering, the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO is a hybrid, powered by a twin turbo charged V6 petrol engine that has been coupled with a mechanical flywheel energy recovery system.

When developing a European HQ for the programme at Silverstone, UK, it was important for Nissan to work with an equally innovative company who shared their ethics and 'reach for the sky' mentality.

Nissan originally approached Dura in March 2015, and the two expert organisations set out to design and install 3 car bays, a gear box assembly area, a sub-assembly area and a machine shop section.

“We needed a cabinetry system that was bespoke to our specific needs and offered assured quality,” said Nissan NISMO LM P1 team manager Chris Mower. “Dura delivered everything we needed and more, and the crew have found their innovative design features excellent to work with, which is vital when doing key preparations to short deadlines.”

Each supercar bay features Dura’s specialist 5 drawer tool cabinets with secure foam inlays, as well as multiple 1200mm base cabinets featuring sliding double doors and adjustable shelving. The true NISMO image cabinetry is finished in pure white with bespoke worktops to provide a stylish and modern finish to a ground breaking team in the FIA World Endurance Championship programme.
