Nissan and Italdesign unveiled GT-R 50 to celebrate the nameplate’s 50th anniversary. Nissan GT-R 50 by Italdesign is the result of the collaboration with the Japanese car manufacturer that began in 2018.
The GT-R 50 is based on the regular-production GT-R, but its twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine fine tuned to produce 710 horsepower. The new model is limited to just 50 units, and priced from 8crore onwards. With a significant number of deposits already taken, customers across the globe have started selecting their specifications.
The body is actually handmade by Italdesign craftsmen, which means building the 50 examples will be a time consuming process. That’s one of the reasons why the car is so expensive. Another being high level of personalization being offered. Customers will be able to choose a livery inspired to the GTRs that made the history of the brand.
Italdesign CEO Jorg Astalosch said – “This is a very special day, after extremely difficult weeks for everyone. After we had to renounce the world premiere at the Geneva motor show, and after the partial stop of our production activities due to current situation. In early May we returned 100 percent operative and can confirm the delivery of the first cars between the end of this year and early 2021, as planned.”
