You can now place your order for ItalDesign's Nissan GT-R50

Designed by ItalDesign in Turin, the GT-R50 serves to celebrate the 50th birthday of the both design house, founded in 1968, and the GT-R nameplate, which went into production with the 1969 Skyline GT-R sedan.

So, if you have about a million Euro to spare this Christmas, go to this link and find out more about how you can become a GT-R50 owner. Best of all, the production version looks nearly totally unchanged from the concept auto. However, with the colossal price, Nissan must be knowing that the vehicle would sell in limited numbers and has already announced that only a handful of GT-R50 will be produced.

But with a couple of exceptions: Customers will be able to pick their own colors for their GT-R50, even though the Goodwood example was finished in a special gray color with gold accents, and customers will also be able to specify interior options. Nissan hasn't announced pricing and/or availability for the USA market, but if we were to convert almost one million euros to USA dollars, the supercar's starting price would have to be a hefty $1.12 million.

"These 50 cars, which celebrate 50 years of the GT-R as well as 50 years of Italdesign, will be rolling tributes to Nissan's engineering leadership and rich sports vehicle heritage for a long time to come".

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. A reinforced six-speed dual-clutch transmission handles the extra power, while Bilstein adjustable suspension, Brembo brakes and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres keep everything pointing in the right direction. Dubbed the GT-R50, this. The production-ready model of the Nissan GT-R50 has been unveiled by the automaker and has been priced at a whopping € 990,000. Cars will be delivered to customers in 2019 and 2020.
