The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is a custom GT-R based on a GT-R NISMO featuring unique bodywork from the famed Italian design company. It’s the first time Italdesign has worked with Nissan.
It has performance to backup the looks, too. The normal GT-R’s twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 has been supplemented with bigger turbos from the GT3-class race car, along with bigger intercoolers, more aggressive cams and beefier internals including the pistons, rods, bearings and crankshaft. Combined, they allow the V6 to produce 710 horsepower and 780 N/m of torque.
Finally, the interior was updated to make it as special as the Italdesign exterior. It features loads of carbon fiber, Alcantara, and gold accents.
No plans for a production version of the GT-R50 have been announced. Nissan also emphasized that this is not a preview of the next generation GT-R. It’s just a special celebration of the model and the design company.
