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.

I think it’s a great lookin’ car - but that’s just me lol

I must have not been paying attention earlier, but I didn't realize the rear spoiler moved until I watched that video.

I see potential in it in ALL Black and a few mods but at the $125-150k price range.

I first thought the tail lights were the new exhaust tips...Bwahahahaha

I like it.... 

They are going to have the test car display from now until March 31 in Japan. It looks real nice. https://twitter.com/...9618928640?s=20 ed1b24152e5db40a1ac62ee9fae02dbd.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

It stole the roof channel and rear end and wing from McLaren

Looks like they couldn't make the front look any better and just tried to cover it up with black.  

it looks like it would be a pretty cool car if they toned down the front bumper.  like i said in another thread, the front looks like a GTR bumper swallowing another GTR bumper.  Just too much going on.

first time ive seen anyone driving it on video really.

 

 Is anyone in the world really going to even buy this thing.  he said not all 50 are sold and im wondering if 5 are really  truly sold truth be told..   this thing has been in development for so long it seems old now and is DOA. a mclaren will destroy it..   I  think i said it 2 years ago but its a  $1 million dollar press release.   its not really for anyone as the ultra wealthy dont want it as it has no heritage or despite nissan claiming its for the 50th anniversary.

it doesnt feel part of the  GTR lineage just  kit car from an Italian design house.

 

A hardcore Nissan fan who is also that ultra wealthy would probably rather  buy a 2020 NISMO and then  take  some money and  give NISMO $400K to do one of those bare chassis R32 restorations which actually has collector value.  $430K for a inhouse  rebuilt 1990 R32 seems insane but it makes way more sense than this car a $1 mil

 

no way this car holds value in the long run.  it might be a car that makes a saudi prince a fun weekend car until he moves on to something else at best.

 

I thought it was sort of neat a few years ago but  its been hanging around for so long and now that  gets closer to maybe being a car actually delivered to a real person..its kind of a joke sadly.

 

Nissan should take that engine and just make a farewell R35 for $300K or whatever the rumor was.  atleast it would feel like a  real GTR.

 

im just over this thing. the entire reason its even made news in the first place  is the absolute vacuum of anything else goin on in GTR world.

 

Totally are with you.. this doesn't make sense at all. No one in thier right mind will spend that kind of money on this thing. If they went all out and make it out of carbon and performance to back it up,then yeah they might have a chance.
Now it's just a laughing stock to be honest. If you pull up in that next to other million dollar cars guess who the 🐘 in the room will be.
