As part of the "One Week" label Jackson and I are making cars fast and bad. Ok, to be clearer. I'm building the 3d model quickly, he's working with extremely limited physics data, and the end result is a car that no-one sensible would have added to the game (due to lack of info both ways), and really very few people would be picking to drive anyway.
In 1990 the Group C rules were modified to limit horsepower and top speeds. Rather than big turbo power, Nissan had to develop a naturally aspirated, 3.5L V12. They did so by 1992, it didn't work too well, the class essentially stopped existing at the end of the year anyway with very few entries to the 1993 series, and the Nissan P35 was never raced. Its development, the Nissan NP35, ran one race in the All Japan Sports Prototype Championship, finished poorly, and that was that.
It has a lot of downforce, a little horsepower, and some fairly rearward aero balance that makes it quite stable to just hammer down and go. It's a lot faster round corners than even 1990 Group Cs, but loses on the straights, making it not great for racing.
Unzip the 7zip file to your assettocorsa/content/cars folder to create assettocorsa/content/cars/oneweek_p35.
One car, two LODs (top and mid for now, likely to add lower in a future patch)
Four skins, the real one the car raced in and 3 fictional.
Engine sounds from a Kunos car because you really don't want to hear the kind of sound clips I can author.

Oh, and there's a Van, too.
Twice the download, twice the fun. This van comes with 24 expertly made skins including such popular options as "used to be blue" and "emergency carpet cleaning".
The combined P35 Project allowed the creation of two vehicles in perfect parallel - finish the mirrors on one, do mirrors on the other. Make a texture on one, make it on the other. Only the NP35 was mentioned publically for obvious reasons relating to an April 1 prank.
The GMC Value Van 35, also known as model P3500, is a 1 ton truck with GM 454 cubic inch power plant, that made nearly 200 horsepower from the factory. In this case "1 ton" means a max load of roughly 2.5 tons. It is not fast in ways the NP35 can only dream of. Step vans are meant for stop and go city use so it has a pretty extreme granny gear in its 4 speed transmission.
