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.

Manchester City are close to signing Major League Soccer's goalkeeper of the year Zack Steffen from Columbus Crew . He endured an unhappy stint at Freiburg, leaving the German club after a year and a half to sign with the Crew.

Deliveries will begin in 2019 and will continue through 2020.

"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 auto program director at Nissan.

So, if you have got some extra cash lying around and have that craving for an extra special supercar, go ahead and visit GT-R50.nissan to book one for yourself. Compared to the concept, the exterior has barely changed, but the interior looks much closer to that of the stock GT-R - the motorsport-style gauge cluster is gone, and in its place is a regular GT-R cluster, with a proper infotainment screen by its side once more.

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

In Europe the GT-R50 has starting price of €990,000 ($1.5 million) before taxes and other charges.
