Left-hand threads are not used on any modern car I know of so the nut needs to be turned counter-clockwise to remove it.
Check the CV spindle end where the nut is to see if it is 'locked' to the nut by pounding a thinner flange on the nut into kind of a keyway. This is still done on some cars (my vintage X1/9 has this) and you would then need to use a punch to unlock it or use a lot more force to loosen the nut.
Earlier, nuts and bolts were used with right-hand threads on one side of the car and left-hand on the other in the belief that this would prevent hardware from unscrewing itself due to the direction of rotation of the wheel. This was discontinued years ago as unnecessary.
