Nissan Showcases First Production-Model Nissan GT-R50

Nissan has released a look at the GT-R50 which was debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2018.

This new release now highlights exactly what the final production model of GT-R50 will look like.

At the Middle-Eastern debut in Dubai, Kalyana Sivagnanam, regional vice president, Marketing and Sales, Nissan AMI and president of Nissan Middle East, said: “The Nissan GT-R is one of the world’s most iconic supercars.

“The GT-R50 by Italdesign is the GT-R taken to the next level, with no compromise in performance, styling or craftsmanship.

“The GT-R50 is the perfect embodiment of the Nissan brand and an ultra-limited collector’s edition for true enthusiasts who want to own the very best Nissan has to offer.”

The Nissan GT-R50 takes Nissan’s latest GT-R NISMO and re-interprets it with a European-style sensibility – combining brute force with Italian craftsmanship and tailoring.

With a special power plant that boasts up to 120PS over the stock engine, as well as chassis and driveline upgrades, performance backs up the new look.

Italdesign developed, engineered and built the car. The distinctive, crisp exterior and interior designs originated from Nissan Design Europe and Nissan Design America.

Key design features include a pronounced power bulge on the hood, stretched LED headlights, a lowered roofline, and prominent “samurai blade” cooling outlets behind the front wheels.

A large, adjustable rear wing, mounted with two uprights, completes the overall look. The exterior is finished in a Liquid Kinetic Gray color, with distinctive Energetic Sigma Gold anniversary accents.

Inside, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign reflects its modern, high-performance pedigree. Two different carbon fiber finishes are extensively used across the center console, instrument panel and door linings.

The seats feature black Alcantara and fine black Italian leather. Gold accents echo the exterior treatment throughout the cockpit.

Underneath its new shape, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is all business. Drawing on Nissan’s extensive GT3 racing experience, the NISMO organization enhanced the hand-assembled 3.8-liter V6 VR38DETT engine to produce an estimated 720PS and 780 Nm of torque.

A revised Bilstein suspension damping system and upgraded Brembo braking system help handle the extra power.
