YOKOHAMA, Japan – The first customer model of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign will go on display at the Geneva Motor Show* in March, before deliveries of the limited-edition car begin in late 2020.

Before then, fans can see the prototype model in locations throughout Japan, including at the 2019 NISMO Festival this Sunday.

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 vehicles. That will make the already limited car — of which only 50 will be produced — even more attractive to collectors. A limited number of reservations for the remaining models are still available.

In Japan, customers can now purchase a GT-R50 by Italdesign through SCI Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of VT Holdings, which has been appointed official importer and distributor for these exclusive cars in the country.

“Our customers have relished the personalized experience provided by Italdesign, who have a long tradition in the exclusive field of ultra-rare, bespoke high-performance vehicles,” said Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan. “Their experience with the GT-R50 has been incredible and I can say first-hand that each car will certainly be a standalone masterpiece.”

Subject to certification and homologation in all relevant markets, customers can expect to get behind the wheel of their personalized Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign sometime between late 2020 and the end of 2021. Powering each GT-R50 by Italdesign is a NISMO-tuned 720 PS hand-built 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6.
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 prototype vehicle, which debuted in June 2018, will be on display at this year’s NISMO Festival, held at Fuji Speedway on Dec. 8. The model will subsequently be shown at Nissan Crossing in Tokyo’s Ginza district in December, and at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January.

horrendous vehicle
Completely destroyed the legendary roofline that is the center of the aggressive, masculine block like design.
Let's pray they scrap this and the successor of the R35 is completely different.

No wonder I doubt this was designed by japanese engineers.

Power levels are what the Nismo should be at.........They may sell all 50 but they will just go to collectors and there are so much better cars in this price range ??

Could not disagree more...That's one smoking hot GT-R...jmho....But dont worry the chances of actually seeing one in the "wild"  is remote

I'd rock it in all black. The other color schemes don't do it for me.

cool looking :)

yeah there are better options in the 1.1 million range lol

I actually like it much better without that overly done usage of gold coloring that was used in front and back.

 

Still not worth $1.1million especially because it probably can't beat 992-911-GT3, 992-911-GT3RS, or 992-911-GT2RS on any track!

Back in Black! That's the only color scheme. 

Looks good in black only because it hides all the hideous lines of the car.
I’ll take one in the green 73 please..... yeah that would be me breaking away from my fleet of white lol
But this beauty would need to be in the green.

Love that
Much better looking the the gold concept. wonder what DBP will look like. Only if it wasn't a million 😉.
Oh god this eyesore

+1, these color schemes look much better than the gold one posted earlier.  I like it, just not at that price!

if the  one car is 1.1 mil wonder  how much this is.....

Damn straight. Looks like dog crap otherwise. 

ahah am i the only one that think it looks alright? haha

Vomit edition

ahah am i the only one that think it looks alright? haha


No... :)

It looks like a Ford GT and a GTR had sex... and this is the result of it.

 

 

I actually like it though. Probably not the goofy 1973 graphics though.  

This little car looks like a Bigmouth Bass

I love the Nissan GTR and I love almost everything Italian including the food and wine! But I'd rather see the legendary Smoky Nagata with his amazing team in Chiba, Japan grab this and do something crazy.
