The Nissan GT-R is going to celebrate its 50th anniversary next year. And to mark this significant milestone, the Japanese car brand decided to cooperate with the Italian Italdesign design, a design and engineering company who also turns 50 the same year, to build the most expensive and powerful version of GT-R ever. With Starzone.com, contemplate the beauty of this limited edition, the GT-R50 Hypercar.
According to the director of the Nissan Global Sports Car Program:
“The reaction from Nissan fans around the world – and potential customers of the GT-R50 – has greatly exceeded our expectations.
These 50 cars, which celebrate 50 years of the GT-R as well as 50 years of Italdesign, will be rolling tributes to Nissan’s engineering leadership and rich sports car heritage for a long time to come”.
Nissan company also informs their customers who want to become an owner of a GT-R50 to visit website www.GT-R50.nissan and contact Italdesign to design their own car. It means that 50 fortuitous customers would own a GT-R50 with its interior and exterior of their favorite color.
Nissan plans to produce only 50 of this car. To afford one, you must spend over ten times as much as a regular version of Nissan GT-R, about £1.5 million (~₦685 million).
The GT-R50 edition is designed on the base of 5th Nismo edition, but equipped with larger intercoolers and turbos, and improved fuel injectors.
Significantly, Nissan has modified 3.8L twin-turbocharged V6 engine of the standard DT-R version and equipped for this GT-R50 Hypercar, lifting its power up from 570bhp (as in the standard version) to 710bhp.
