The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original 1969 Nissan Skyline GT-R.

The Japanese manufacturer had also previously unveiled a working prototype in June 2018 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Italdesign, founded in Turin, Italy in 1968.

This magnificent Italian-Japanese supercar is based on the GT-R NISMO and it is both a technical and styling exercise to showcase the combination of Japanese engineering and Italian design and it definitely works. I mean, just look at it.

Furthermore, it is powered by a 3.8 L NISMO V6 producing 710 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque, that's 110 hp and 94 lb-ft more than the "standard" GT-R.

The GT-R50 has basically been on tour for over a year, it has recently been displayed at the NISMO Festival at Fuji Speedway and set to be a part of the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon in January. The bad news is production is limited to 50 units only, but the good news there are still a few available to buy, with prices starting at $1.1 million. Deliveries will begin in late 2020.

But if you can't quite stretch to the real thing, you can grab yourself this 1:24 scale Nissan GT-R model kit for a much more reasonable price. Click here to order one now...
