GT-R50 video proves the art of hand-building cars is alive and well
They don’t make ‘em like they used to? Oh yes they do.
It was clear from the very first time we clapped eyes on the Italdesign GT-R50 that it was a seriously special car. Combining futuristic styling with unmistakably GT-R design cues, it was an instant hit.
In fact, the GT-R50 was so well-received by the motoring world that there are now increasing whispers of it actually going into production - no doubt in very small numbers and with a very large price tag. A cool million is the eye-watering figure being tossed around. Ouch.
But before you scoff at the ridiculousness of that number, watch this video. It documents the GT-R50 being built and reveals the jaw-dropping amount of love and labour that went into its creation. Italdesign do things the old fashioned way - with sheets of metal and hammers. It's a dying art in our modern age of automation and it's absolutely mesmerising to watch.
