Nissan’s 710HP GT-R50 Supercar Is Finally Being Brought To Life By Italdesign

Dec 5, 2019

Early last year, Nissan and Italdesign enamored the automotive world with a bespoke prototype vehicle honoring the anniversary of one of the era’s most prolific race cars, the GT-R. And while the modern rendition of the recognizable model has forged its own path in terms of style and elegance, the limited-edition GT-R50 — revealed as the prototype’s first consumer-focused variant — has finally broken cover.

With a limited production run of only 50 examples, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is poised to become one of the industry’s most sought-after supercar platforms. The new GT-R50 strikes relatively true to the conceptual render that was shown last year, with nearly all of the car’s aesthetic- and performance-oriented characteristics remaining the same, including its sculpted silhouette, aerodynamic enhancements, and beautifully-imaged front end. Under the hood, the GT-R50 calls forth 710 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque, courtesy of a hand-built, Nismo-tuned 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. With interest in the vehicle at an all-time high, it makes sense that a vast majority of the limited-edition models have already been sold, making the vehicle’s $1,120,000 price tag all-the-more understandable. Deliveries of the consumer GT-R50 are slated to begin at the end of 2020 and last until the final quarter of 2021, so you’ll have to act fast if you’re interested in becoming one of the lucky few to own this masterful vehicle.
