SUMMARY

Gran Turismo winner, Jann Mardenborough's, actual Nissan R35 GT-R, which features in the big screen film Gran Turismo, due for global release this August, and raced by him in GTs as the Nissan GT Academy winner.

DESCRIPTION

Offered here is Gran Turismo winner, Jann Mardenborough's, actual Nissan R35 GT-R, which features in the big screen film Gran Turismo, due for global release this August, and as raced by him as one of the Nissan GT Academy winners. Traditionally, cars showcased in big-budget movies do not become available for sale, as the film company retains them for promotional PR duties and sequels. As well as featuring heavily in the film central to Mardenboroughs journey, he raced this car in real life when the car was active as a Nissan Europe's Works car. 
 
Purchased by RJN Motorsport in 2014, it had a major upgrade to the 2015 Nismo specification before entering into a full race program as a factory car entered by Nissan GT Academy Team RJN.
The GT-R had two excellent results in the Nurburgring 24HRS with a ninth position in 2015 and an 11th place in 2016 in a well-documented, epic battle with Bentley for tenth and 11th place. Besides Jann Mardenborough, our GT-R GT3 was driven by other GT Academy winners including included Ricardo Sanchez, Gaetan Paletou, Lucas Ordonez and Matt Simmons. It also competed in GTs with Alex Buncombe, Struan Moore and Autosport Award-winner, Matt Parry, driving. It was subsequently sold to Graham Tilley who achieved several excellent results in GT CUP in 2019/20 before being purchased by our vendor, who incidentally was responsible for starting the whole Nissan GT Academy, and whose role in the film is played by Orlando Bloom.
 
R35 GT-R 8A01 was fittingly prepared for its film duties by RJN Motorsport and subsequently was fully checked over back in the workshops prior to a final shakedown on April 24th 2023. The Nissan R35 GT-R GT3 can be raced in many championships globally, it would be a great fit in the UK with the GT CUP and Masters and, with its film credentials, would be welcome anywhere.
