The Limited-edition Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign will be delivered to first customers by late 2020. The GT-R50, commemorating half a century of Nissan most well-known line, is scheduled to go on display at next year’s Geneva Motor Show in March for global audience.
Before the international fanfare, Nissan has prepared a prototype of the GT-R50 for their home market at locations throughout Japan and at last Sunday’s NISMO Festival. Nissan has reported that the limited edition GT-R has been well received with a significant number of deposits already taken, and customers across the globe are in the process of selecting personal specifications for their GT-R50s. Only 50 units of the GT-R50 is available for worldwide buyers. Up to date, a limited number of reservations for the remaining GT-R50s are still available. Buyers in the land of the Rising Sun are able to purchase the GT-50s via SCI Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of VT Holdings, which has been appointed official importer and distributor for these exclusive cars in the country.
Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan, commented, “Our customers have relished the personalized experience provided by Italdesign, who have a long tradition in the exclusive field of ultra-rare, bespoke high-performance vehicles. Each GT-R50 will certainly be a standalone masterpiece.”
The GT-50 is still subjected to certification and homologation in all relevant markets, therefore Nissan has announced deliveries of personalized GT-50s to be between late 2020 and the end of 2021.
Powering each GT-R50 by Italdesign is a NISMO-tuned 720 PS hand-built 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6. Nissan collaborated with Turin, Italy-based Italdesign to create the model, based on the latest Nissan GT-R NISMO, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the GT-R in 2019.
The GT-50 prototype first debut in June 2018. A running unit was displayed to the Japanese crowd at the NISMO Festival, held at Fuji Speedway on 8 Dec. The model will subsequently be shown at Nissan Crossing in Tokyo’s Ginza district in December, and at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January.
