Limited to a run of 50, the car is meant to celebrate 50 years of the GT-R and Italdesign.
Italdesign introduces the first Nissan GT-R 50 by Italdesign in the celebratory edition limited to fifty supercars. The first luxury vehicles will be delivered to customers in late 2020 and early 2021.
The Nissan GT-R 50 by Italdesign is the result of the collaboration with the Japanese car manufacturer that began in 2018 with the creation of the prototype of the same name. The success achieved in the months following the presentation of the project drove Nissan and Italdesign to decide to launch production of the road version in a limited series of 50 units.
Customers can expect to get behind the wheel of their personalized Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign sometime between late 2020 and the end of 2021. Powering each GT-R50 by Italdesign is a NISMO-tuned 720 PS hand-built 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6.Nissan collaborated with Turin, Italy-based Italdesign to create the model, based on the latest Nissan GT-R NISMO, in commemoration of the 50th anniversaries of the GT-R in 2019 and Italdesign in 2018.
“This is a very special day – said Jörg Astalosch, Italdesign CEO – after extremely difficult weeks for everyone. After we had to renounce to the world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show and, after the partial stop of our production activities due to COVID- 19, in early May we have returned 100% operative and can confirm the delivery of the first cars between the end of this year and early 2021, as planned. It is no coincidence that we presented the car from the “Tazio Nuvolari” circuit: it is where we routinely process all dynamic tests necessary for vehicles type approval for the different markets and we are about to conclude the ones for our GT-R 50 “.
“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 Michael Carcamo, Nissan’s Program Director Sports Cars and NISMO. “Their experience with the GT-R50 has been incredible and I can say first-hand that each car will certainly be a standalone masterpiece.”
