Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign to enter production in 50 unit limited run
08 December, 2018, 07:04
At the 2018 Goodwood Festival of speed, Nissan showed off its prototype Italian-designed GT-R, and the reaction was so overwhelmingly positive the automaker has decided it's actually going to build some for people to buy.
Nissan announced Friday that orders for its exotic GT-R50 by Italdesign, limited to 50 units, are now open.
The GT-R50 started life as a NISMO version of the GT-R and as a means for Nissan to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the model.
The Japanese automaker says the production car's exterior is "virtually unchanged" from the concept vehicle that debuted at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.
While the prototype was finished in a grey with gold accents, Nissan says customers will be able to specify their preferred colour combinations for the production model. In fact, the car's exterior will be virtually unchanged from the coupe that was shown at Goodwood earlier this year, based on the GT-R Nismo and styled in collaboration with Pininfarina.

Developed to celebrate the 50 anniversaries of the GT-R and Italdesign, the ultra-exclusive GT-R50 will be limited to strictly 50 cars.
