Orders Begin for Nissan GT-R50

YOKOHAMA, Japan (Dec. 7, 2018) – Nissan has confirmed the production design of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign – the ultimate expression of the GT-R – and has opened the official order books for the 50-vehicle limited run.
 
The car’s exterior is virtually unchanged from the prototype first shown in July at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. Pricing of the NISMO-tuned 720PS GT-R by Italdesign will start at 990,000 euros before taxes and options.

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. While the prototype vehicle was finished in a special gray with gold accents, customers will be able to specify their preferred color combinations for the production version. They also will be able to choose interior colors and packages.1

In addition to Goodwood, the GT-R50 prototype has made appearances at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in the U.S. and Nissan Crossing in Tokyo’s Ginza district. It will be on display at the Nissan Gallery in Yokohama from Dec. 7.

"The reaction from Nissan fans around the world – and potential customers of the GT-R50 – has greatly exceeded our expectations,” said Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan. "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 car heritage for a long time to come.”

 
Customers who wish to own a GT-R50 may start by visiting www.GT-R50.nissan and contacting Italdesign to create their own bespoke car. Deliveries will begin in 2019 and will continue through 2020

There actually serious about selling this for over a million..... I wonder how many will buy a million dollar Nissan

That is a seriously ugly car.

50 is a low production run....... power of 720ps , what is the HP and TQ output?

This will be interesting to see if it sells............If it was a Porsche GT-2 rsr that make 800 HP ,  NO PROBLEM.........

Would Nissan sell the engine and transmission package by itself is the good question, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
They probably already got orders for them (like in the Middle East) so why not make it. Nissan is laughing to the bank. Didnt they also sell out of the Juke R at a ridiculous price mostly from the Middle East? The GTR is its own brand

They can definitely sell 50 of these, there are more than 50 wealthy car collectors around the globe who doesn't care about how much the MSRP is or how much the car is actually worth. As long as its a status symbol and you are the selected few that can get your hands on one... Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah <--- this guy will probably buy 3.

720ps is approx. 710bhp...
Not sure if Nissan has released the torque spec.

Edit: Ahh yes indeed / 780Nm so thats about 575ft.lbs.

Well I’m sure someone in the UAE will be pushing it to 1000hp

50 :)

So all 50 are already sold out lol
You bullshiting me bro
Given the turmoil at the helm of Nissan, I am pleased that this happening. It bodes well for an R36 reaching production. That said, wealthy people seem to love bespoke cars. Each year Newman Marcus offers a grossly overpriced special edition of a car. There are usually less than 100 available and they sell out in just seconds. I envision a similar result with the GT-R50.

So all 50 are already sold out lol

Lol, Im not sayin theyre already sold out - Im just sayin they will.
Now excuse me while I run out to buy a lottery ticket :)

I like the blue and gold combo. if the gold were any "golder" it would look like a UCLA uniform. 

There are so  many compromises . Carbon rims and steel brakes  etc. For this money, not for me.

If they kill the R36 project ,who ever get this model is going to have a big smile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

This car would be no different than buying a "concept car" and the people buying it wouldn't even use it to it's full potential.  I'd rather buy the FT-1 original concept as it looks 100000x better  IMHO.

Ill still hold out for the R36

Same here or the C-8, which ever comes to market first.
