Nissan has confirmed the production design of the GT-R50 by Italdesign. The Nissan GT-R50 comes with what the company calls 'the ultimate expression of the GT-R'. The prototype of the GT-R50 was first showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, earlier this year.
Nissan has already accepting orders for the highly exclusive and limited edition model. The Nissan GT-R50 is part of the 50-year celebration of both, the iconic ‘GT-R brand' and Italdesign. The GT-R50 will be limited to just 50 units and come with a starting price of USD 1.1 million (equivalent to Rs 7.85 crore), before options.
The production design of the GT-R50 is virtually unchanged from the prototype showcased earlier in the year. The car is based on the Nissan GT-R Nismo and has been designed by the Italy-based design studio, Italdesign.
The prototype showcased earlier came with a grey paint scheme with gold accents. However, Nissan states that the 50 customers of the GT-R50 will be given the choice to customise their preferred colour combinations, on both the exterior and interiors of the car.
The limited edition Nissan GT-R50 comes powered by an upgraded 3.8-litre V6 twin-turbo engine. It produces 710bhp and 780Nm of peak torque. This is a significant increase of 110bhp and 128Nm, compared to the standard GT-R Nismo. This substantial increase in power is due to the use of larger GT3-spec turbocharger on the limited edition model.
The engine on the GT-R50 is further mated to a reinforced dual-clutch six-speed gearbox. The transmission set-up also comes with larger differentials and drive shafts to handle the additional power output.
