Nissan and Italdesign Unveil Sultry GT-R50

Nissan and Italdesign Unveil Sultry GT-R50”

Nissan's tuning arm has also tweaked the intake and exhaust systems and added a reinforced dual-clutch sequential six-speed rear transaxle that features stronger differentials. Well, wonder no more; say hello to the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign. It has a distinctive interior that has a shiny gold and black tone exterior.

Explore Nissan GT-R technical specifications including dimensions, engines, gearbox, mileage, seating capacity, boot space, etc. This is the GT-50 by Italdesign, a special concept version of the Godzilla developed and built by design house Italdesign, which coincidentally is also celebrating its golden jubilee this year.

The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign will make its public debut in Europe next month.

The GT-R50 is based on the showroom-ready GT-R Nismo but boasts new bodywork that makes it 54mm lower and almost 100mm longer and wider.

Up front, the revised GT-R gets an "Energetic Sigma Gold" grille surround flanked by sleek LED headlights, gold mirror covers, and there's a modest power bulge on the hood.

From the sides you might notice the roofline is actually 54mm lower, creating a supercar-like profile. This is a rare window in time when two big moments intersect: "50 years of Italdesign shaping the automotive world and 50 years of Nissan generating excitement through our iconic GT-R", said Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan's senior vice president for global design. The suspension retains Bilstein's DampTronic adjustable damping system and the brakes are by Brembo; the wheels though are custom-made 21-inch affairs wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres that are fully 10.5 inches wide at the rear. A large adjustable rear wing completes the look. The prototype is called the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign and it is the companies first ever collaboration.

Inside, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign reflects its modern, high-performance pedigree.

Custom 21-inch wheels finish off the car's bold stance, and the Liquid Kinetic Gray paint with distinctive Energetic Sigma Gold anniversary accents gives the vehicle a unique flavor. With respect to engine, Nissan GT-R50 is powered with handmade twin-turbo 3.8 liter V6 unit and is upgraded by NISMO with larger GT3 competition-spec turbos, larger intercoolers, heavy-duty crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods and bearings.

Matching the exterior highlights are gold accents through the instrument panel, doors, and switchgear - the latter said to be inspired by race cars - while the bespoke steering wheel features a hub and spokes fashioned from carbon-fibre, along with a flat bottom and Alcantara trim.

Inside, two different carbon fiber finishes are used across the center console, instrument panel and door linings.
