Production Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign Revealed

Italdesign GTR 1

Finally, we get a good look at the production-ready Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign.

The Nissan GT-R50 by Italidesign is a unique take on the GTR concept and after we were wowed by the initial images, it appears that customers were too. There have apparently been a significant number of deposits and customers are already choosing their spec. 

Just 50 will be built, making it quite the collectable. The first customer car will be on display at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, with the first customer deliveries towards the end of 2020. 

"Our customers have relished the personalized experience provided by Italdesign, who have a long tradition in the exclusive field of ultra-rare, bespoke high-performance vehicles," said Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan. "Their experience with the GT-R50 has been incredible and I can say first-hand that each car will certainly be a standalone masterpiece."

The GT-R50 is a collaboration between Nissan and Italian styling house Italdesign and it is based on the latest iteration of the Nissan GT-R NISMO. Under the bonnet is the NISMO-tuned 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6, which produces a thundering 530 kW.
