Nissan's all-new LMP1 World Endurance Championship contender ran for the first time this week with Michael Krumm behind the wheel, AUTOSPORT can reveal.
The Nissan GT-R LM NISMO undertook its first test at the manufacturer's US test track in Arizona, approximately 50 miles from Phoenix.
The car was driven by long-time Nissan driver Krumm, AUTOSPORT has learned, during what is believed to be a multi-day test at the facility.
No confirmation of the test was available from Nissan, which is only saying that the LMP1 remains on schedule and that further details of the programme will be announced in the new year.
Nissan had said in September that the P1 was due to undertake its maiden run in the first week of November.
The Japanese manufacturer, which will next year be mounting its first bid for outright honours at the Le Mans 24 Hours since 1999, has its first test at a racing circuit scheduled for Sebring in the second week of December.
The official launch of the car pencilled in ahead of that test will not take place and is now understood to be scheduled for February.
Technical details of the LMP1 and the driver line-up for its two-car WEC campaign and an additional entry at Le Mans will be announced at this stage.
