A remarkable opportunity to bid on the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 featured in the captivating film “Gran Turismo”.

With a fresh coat of white paint, the car is offered in race-ready condition.
Racing enthusiasts and movie memorabilia collectors, this is one auction you won’t want to pass up. Silverstone Auctions proudly presents the legendary Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, the star of the adrenaline-fueled film “Gran Turismo.” Get ready to own a piece of history as this high-performance machine, skillfully driven by Jann Mardenborough both in real races and as a stunt driver during the film’s thrilling scenes, hits the auction block.
Previously owned by the brains behind the GT Academy, Darren Cox, the GT-R NISMO GT3 first dominated the tracks as a Nissan Europe works racecar. One of its most memorable moments was its stellar ninth-place overall finish in the Nürburgring 24 hours race in 2015, solidifying Nissan’s legacy in the racing world.
Sporting a striking white coat initially, the car later received a poignant color change to black, paying tribute to a devoted spectator tragically lost in a Nürburgring Endurance Series (VLN) race, involving Mardenborough and another GT-R GT3 driver. After an exhilarating racing career, the vehicle was elegantly repainted white once more, and it took a leading role in “Gran Turismo,” the captivating film that chronicles Mardenborough’s awe-inspiring journey from virtual racing to becoming a real-life racing sensation.
While “Gran Turismo” showcases Archie Madekwe portraying Mardenborough, the film expertly brings Mardenborough’s actual driving prowess to the screen with adrenaline-pumping stunt sequences, featuring him as one of the skilled stunt drivers during production.
Unlike typical practices of retaining screen-used cars for potential sequels, the Nissan GT3 stands out as one of the few privately-owned gems, making it a highly coveted collectible for devoted enthusiasts and racing aficionados eager to own an authentic “Gran Turismo” memorabilia.
Mark your calendar for August 25, when the auction takes center stage, a mere two weeks after the film’s premiere on August 11.
