For 2015, TAG Heuer is partnering with the phenomenon that is the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo: authentic Avant-Garde design. After 16 years of absence, Nissan is back with a revolutionary new car, a true technological challenge. An incredible car with a unique design, it is a behemoth with more than 1,000 horsepower, hybrid front wheel drive and a V6 3-litre twin turbo engine.
