The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign Is Fabulous


Nissan GT-R50This gorgeous, stunning Nissan GT-R50 is a custom prototype built to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R and the design house founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The prototype car is based on a production 2018 Nissan GT-R Nismo, but was developed, engineered and built by Italdesign, which features a 3.8L engine and 710 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque.

The interior was updated to make it as special as the Italdesign exterior, it features loads of carbon fiber, Alcantara, and gold accents.
How often do you get to ask, ‘What if we created a GT-R without limits,’ and then actually get to build it?” said Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s senior vice president for global design. “This is a rare window in time when two big moments intersect: 50 years of Italdesign shaping the automotive world and 50 years of Nissan generating excitement through our iconic GT-R. So to celebrate this convergence, Nissan and Italdesign created this custom GT-R to mark 50 years of engineering leadership.”
This beauty will make its debut in Europe next month. Production of the car has not been announced, but I really, really wish it was.
