Above is the first official Nissan LMP1 photo.
The Nissan GT-R LM NISMO has finally been revealed ... Kind of. In this day of teases, we follow-up the glimpses of the Mercedes W06 Formula One car with a backshot of Nissan's highly anticipated LMP1 entry.
The team tweeted out the obscure image with the message, 'A new era is about to begin.' The car was caught testing at COTA and the spy shots clearly showed a unique design, far removed from what Audi, Porsche, and Toyota have done with their programs.
It is still believed that Nissan will officially unveil the car in their Super Bowl ad this weekend. Although this photo doesn't show much, it does give you the best shot yet of the rear of the car and the towering wing at the back of the prototype.
