WARSAW, Poland - It's the kind of road trip that performance car enthusiasts dream of -- a week-long, 3,000-mile (5,000km) driving adventure through 13 countries.
Nissan has teamed up with French publishing house L'Ecurie and INTERSECTION Magazine to participate in the 2013 Gumball 3000 Rally - a non-competitive, pan-European parade of the world's most exciting and desirable cars. The team has been entered as car 56, a number that has great significance for Nissan, which occupied 'Garage 56' at the Le Mans 24hr race in 2012 with the Nissan DeltaWing. The entry will be giving the millions of spectators expected to line the route a first glimpse of the exciting new Nissan 370Z NISMO in action. Driven by Gumball 3000 regulars Patrice Meignan and Jeremy 'Jey' Taltaud, the Nissan 370Z NISMO features a special camouflage livery designed specifically for the event.
The rally kicked off in Copenhagen on May 18 and concluded on May 25 in Monaco at the Formula 1 Grand Prix De Monaco 2013.
