The first collaboration between Nissan and Italdesign, the Nissan GT-R50 made its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, England, last month. The vehicle commemorates the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R, in 2019, and Italdesign, in 2018.
The car is developed, engineered and manufactured by Italdesign, combining Nissan’s latest GT-R NISMO with European-style brute force and Italian artistry. Italdesign plans to produce no more than 50 of these tailor-made beauties.
Significant design features include a distinct power bulge on the hood, stretched LED headlights, a lowered roofline and prominent ‘samurai blade’ cooling outlets behind the front wheels.
The muscular exterior is finished in a Liquid Kinetic Gray colour, with Energetic Sigma Gold anniversary accents. The interior reflects modernity and elegance with its black Alcantara and fine black Italian leather seats coupled with a cockpit that echoes the gold accents of the exterior.
