The first customer model of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign will go on display at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year, before deliveries of the limited-edition supercar begin in late 2020.
Shown here in production form, the GT-R50 will also be showcased in locations throughout Japan, including at the 2019 NISMO Festival this Sunday.
Nissan says customer demand for the production version of the car has been strong, with a significant number of deposits already taken, and customers across the globe are in the process of selecting personal specifications for their GT-R50. Buyers can specify their preferred colour combinations, as well as interior colours and packages.
Limited to just 50 units worldwide, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is expected to be one of the most sought after collector cars. The highly exclusive GT-R50 is powered by a Nismo-tuned 537kW hand-built 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
Nissan collaborated with Turin, Italy-based Italdesign to create the model, based on the latest Nissan GT-R Nismo, in commemoration of the 50th anniversaries of the GT-R in 2019 and Italdesign in 2018. The GT-R50 is priced at a jaw dropping €990,000 (approximately A$1.55m) before taxes and options.
