Beyond the World Sportscar Championship and All Japan Sports Prototype Championship, Nissan's R90Cs competed in other events around the world. Most notably, at the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans, where four R90CKs and one R90CP were joined by two older privateer R89Cs. The JSPC Nissan Motorsport team entered a lone R90CP, while the WSC Nissan Motorsports team entered two new R90CKs. The American Nissan Performance Technology Inc. (NPTI) from the IMSA GT Championship team entered two R90CKs. Courage Compétition and Team Le Mans entered older R89Cs. Only three Nissans would finish. The lone R90CP of Masahiro Hasemi, Kazuyoshi Hoshino, and Toshio Suzuki finished fifth place, 11 laps behind the winning Jaguar. The American R90CK finished 17th place, while Courage's older R89C finished 22nd.

The R90CK was notable for achieving the highest straight line speed on the Mulsanne Straight at the Le Mans circuit following the installation of chicanes. Mark Blundell reached 366 km/h (226.9 mph) on his pole position lap — 24.2 mph less than the previous record trap speed without the chicanes in place. The qualifying engine, normally capable of up to 1000 bhp, had a mechanical issues causing the wastegate being jammed. The engine produced well over 1100 bhp.
