Fusing Italian elegance with Japanese engineering, the fabulous Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is a special collaboration that celebrates two landmark birthdays.
With 2018 marking the 50th anniversary of both the GT-R name and the renowned Italian design company, the two brands have combined to deliver an ultra-limited re-worked version of the Nissan GT-R Nismo that carries real supercar presence.
The bespoke bodywork brings muscular yet fluid lines, with the long rear window profile offering a stylishly sleek silhouette and the roofline coming in at 54mm lower than the standard GT-R.
LED headlights extend high over the front wheel arches with a unique lighting signature, while the iconic quartet of round taillights come in a mesmerising 3D design. A large adjustable rear wing catches the eye – as do the gorgeous gold highlights.
In terms of performance, the hand-built 3.8-litre turbocharged V6 engine has been upgraded to 710bhp and 575lb ft of torque, courtesy of new high-spec turbos, larger intercoolers and enhanced pistons, connecting rods and fuel injectors amongst other upgrades.
Nissan has confirmed that this model is not the next-generation GT-R, but that doesn’t stop the GT-R50 from being a rousing and creative tour-de-force.
