€1 Million Italdesign Nissan GT-R50 Officially Confirmed For Production

Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign to enter production in 50 unit limited run

The Japanese automaker revealed the auto at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July to celebrate the 50th anniversary (hence the name and production number) of the GT-R nameplate, first appearing on the original Skyline GT-R as revealed at the 1968 Tokyo Motor Show.

Nissan has opened up the order forms for its limited run of anniversary-celebrating ItalDesign GT-R50 and revealed images of the production-spec auto. Buying one requires €990,000 Euro, or nearly $1.13 million Dollars, which is enough to buy 11 base model 2019 GT-Rs.

Nissan will do just that by building 50 examples of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign, which was unveiled earlier this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom, created as the ultimate expression of the GT-R for the model's 50th anniversary next year.

While the vehicle featured during the Goodwood FoS had a predominantly gray finish combined with gold accents, the production version shown here has a more appealing main blue shade.

While Nissan only showed off one spec of the GT-R50 here, buyers' cars will likely look much different.

While the exterior remains true to the concept vehicle, the interior bears more in common with other GT-R variants than the show auto.

It's more than just a GT-R Nismo with an Italdesign makeover as the R50 offers 710 horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine or an extra 110 hp over the standard Nismo.

While the prototype was finished in a grey with gold accents, Nissan says customers will be able to specify their preferred colour combinations for the production model.

"The reaction from Nissan fans around the world - and potential customers of the GT-R50 - has greatly exceeded our expectations", said Nissan's global sports auto director, Bob Laishley.

Nissan will make only 50 of the cars, and each of them will sell for 990,000 euros before taxes and options.

Developed to celebrate the 50 anniversaries of the GT-R and Italdesign, the ultra-exclusive GT-R50 will be limited to strictly 50 cars.
