The Nissan GT-R50 – a one-off creation to celebrate half a century of Italdesign and GT-R – is heading for Goodwood and maybe in to production – with an £800k price tag.
Just over a week ago we revealed the Nissan GT-R50, a one-off celebration of the 50th anniversary of GT-R and of Italdesign. And Nissan were clear it was a one-off.
Italdesign has given the GT-R50 a big gold inner element at the front with a bigger bonnet bulge, slim headlights stretching from the wheel arches to the front vents, lowered roof, gold inlays, big shoulders and titivated back end, 21″ alloys and a Liquid Kinetic Gray paint job with gold highlights.
Nissan has given the GT-R50 race-spec turbos, adjustable dampers and upgraded inlet and exhaust systems, all conspiring to deliver an even more appealing 710bhp.
This one-off special is now heading for a public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week, but it turns out it may not be a one-off special after all.
Nissan has set up a new website for the GT-R50, where it tells us:
The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign starts with our latest GT-R NISMO and re-interprets it with a European-style sensibility combining Japanese performance and Italian craftsmanship. Pending the GT-R50 by Italdesign’s reception at Goodwood and other global appearances in the coming months, a customer version inspired by the prototype with an estimated starting price of €900,000 may be created.
If you’re happy to part with £800,000 for one of a limited run of just 50 cars worldwide, Nissan invite you to send over your details so they can speak to you.
We’d say a production run of the Nissan GT-R50 looks a racing certainty.
