The R390 is powered by a 3.5L Twin-Turbo V8. Out of the three R390s that participated in the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans, only the #23 car finished the race.
Four R390 GT1s participated in Le Mans the following year. They were slightly upgraded from the R390 to generate more downforce by extending the tail bodywork, and all four R390 GT1s were able to finish the race (3rd, 5th, 6th, and 10th).
