Nissan would be correct to steal some of Italdesign’s elements for a next-generation GT-R. This is a stunner.


The Nissan GT-R50 concept, combined with a assistance of Italian styling residence Italdesign, rocked a worlds as one of a coolest Nissan concepts to entrance in a while. But what creates this automobile even crazier is a idea that it really good could enter production.

Nissan announced Monday that a GT-R50 will make a real-world entrance during a Goodwood Festival of Speed after this week. Goodwood will act as a bellwether for Nissan — if there’s adequate demand, Nissan says a prolongation chronicle of a GT-R50 “may be created.” So you’re revelation me there’s a chance…

If a judgment heads to production, Nissan estimates that it and Italdesign will build usually 50 examples, any of that will start during around 900,000 euros (about $1.05 million). That’s usually 10 times a cost of a bottom GT-R. Only.

But even pushing an whole swift of GT-Rs down a travel won’t lift a arrange of courtesy that a singular GT-R50 would. Based on a customary GT-R, a GT-R50 rocks wholly new bodywork with a reduce roofline, fatter fenders and “floating” taillights. The interior did divided with a infotainment shade in preference of a racier instrument cluster and an Alcantara-wrapped dashboard.

While it competence still use a GT-R Nismo’s twin-turbocharged V6, it incited a energy adult — approach up. Thanks to turbochargers borrowed from a GT-R GT3 competition automobile and beefier driveline components, a GT-R50 judgment puts out a pleasant 710 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque. If you’re anywhere nearby Goodwood this week, it’d behoove we to make a trek to see this judgment in person.
