Nissan disclosed the production version of GT-R50 by Italdesign, and it is certain that it remains faithful to the concept. Orders have begun, but only 50 copies will be sold.
The concept had a gray and gold exterior, but customers can specify which color combination they want on their own model. As we learned while driving the prototype, all 50 copies will have a different design so no two are alike. Buyers can choose different colors and packages to customize the interior.
The super car celebrates the 50th anniversary of GT-R in 2019 and Italdesign in 2018. It started life as a 600 hp GT-R Nismo, but Nissan tweaked the engine to produce much more power. Underneath the metal plate, a 3.8-liter V-6 makes a full 710 hp and 575 lb-ft with torque. The engine pairs with a six-speed dual gearbox. Together with a more powerful engine, the GT-R50 has an adjustable rear wing, a revised bilge suspension system, improved Brembo brakes and a roofline lower than 2 inches.
If you are interested in one of the 50 copies, you must contact Italdesign. Prices start at 990,000 euros before taxes and options, or approximately $ 1.1 million in today's exchange rates. Deliveries will run from 2019 to 2020.
