GT-R50 video proves the art of hand-building cars is alive and well
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.
