Based on the GT-R Nismo, the GT-R50 is Nissan and Italdesign’s first joint project. The development, engineering and building of the car was all Italdesign’s work, while the design was undertaken at Nissan’s London and San Diego design centres.
Styling of the production GTR-50 is relatively unchanged from the concept that was displayed at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. That vehicle was finished in a unique grey-gold combination, but Nissan says each production GT-R50 will likely be unique, given Italdesign's specialisation in bespoke fitment.
The model is longer, wider and lower to the ground than the Nismo on which it’s based, while the roofline has been lowered by 54mm. The car’s original features have been exaggerated and aerodynamically improved, most notably in the form of the large, adjustable rear wing.
Performance has been boosted to fit the car’s limited status, with the 3.8-litre V6 engine producing 710bhp and 575lb ft - up from the 592bhp and 481lb ft of the standard GT-R Nismo.
