Nissan and Italdesign have come together to create what might be the ultimate GT-R: the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign.
The GT-R50 is based on a 2018 GT-R Nismo, and perhaps only 50 will be produced. The model was made to celebrate Italdesign’s golden anniversary this year, and the GT-R’s 50th birthday next year.
Ironically, it was Italdesign which developed, engineered and constructed the GT-R50, while Nissan was responsible for the coupe’s exterior and interior design!
The coupe’s striking elements include a lower roofline, custom 21- inch wheels and a more pronounced “power bulge” on the bonnet. The two- tone paintwork is a blend of Liquid Kinetic Gray and Energetic Sigma Gold.
The cabin is trimmed in various materials that include Alcantara, carbon fibre and Italian leather.
The GT-R50 has plenty of substance to match its style, too. Its twin- turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 has been upgraded with components that include GT3 competition- spec turbochargers and larger intercoolers, along with stronger pistons, connecting rods and bearings.
As a result, the engine’s output has risen by around 120hp to 720hp, and torque is estimated to be 780Nm.
Prices for the GT-R50 will supposedly start at 900,000 euros. If you want one but are only reading this now, it may be too late.
