- Limited production run of 50 confirmed
- You'll need to stump up €990,000 to secure one
- Based on the Nismo GT-R, deliveries in 2019
The GT-R50, Nissan and Italdesign’s ultimate interpretation of the Nissan GT-R, has been confirmed for production. The Japanese car maker has confirmed the production version and has opened the order books for the 50-vehicle limited run. Deliveries are expected to take place in 2019 and 2020, with the price confirmed as €990,000 .
Nissan has tweaked the internals of the GT-R Nismo donor car, too. The hand-assembled 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT engine now makes around 710bhp and 575lb ft of torque, thanks to twin GT3-spec turbochargers and intercoolers, and a wealth of other near racing-spec parts.
Nissan says the the crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods and bearings, piston oil jets and camshaft profiles have all been uprated, while the engine also benefits from optimised ignition timing along with new intake and exhaust systems.
Nissan has mated the upgraded engine mated to a beefier dual-clutch six-speed ‘box, with redesigned differentials and driveshafts.
The handling has been upgraded, too. The car now runs on a Bilstein DampTronic, adjustable damping system, while stoppers have been upped to six-piston Brembos at the front and four-piston stoppers at the rear. Michelin Pilot Super Sports finish off the handling upgrades.
