Nissan GT-R50 production will be limited to just 50 units to celebrate 50 years of GT-R, priced at $1.1 Million
Nissan, the Japanese automaker stunned the world with the prototype vehicle named as the GT-R50 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England in July, earlier this year. It is very rare for a prototype or a concept vehicle to take its final form this quick but it seems that Nissan had different plans altogether. The production-ready model of the Nissan GT-R50 has been unveiled by the automaker and has been priced at a whopping € 990,000.
The supercar has been brought out in the world in the bid of celebrating the 50th anniversary of both GT-R and Italdesign. However, with the colossal price, Nissan must be knowing that the car would sell in limited numbers and has already announced that only a handful of GT-R50 will be produced. Well, to be precise, the Japanese automobile veteran will manufacture 50 units of the GT-R50.
Nissan and Italdesign previewed the prototype of the GT-R50 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed with a grey paint scheme with golden strokes, however, the ultra-rich 50 customers will be able to choose their own colours for the exterior and interior finishes. We also understand that the same car will be previewed on December 7 in the Nissan Gallery in Yokohama.
Mechanically, the Nissan GT-R50 features a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 motor. This engine produces a maximum power of 710 HP and a peak torque of 780 Nm. The power figures are significantly better than the standard Nismo with the power and the peak torque being 110 HP and 128 Nm more respectively than the Nismo mill.
The limited edition GT-R50 also features a revised six-speed dual-clutch gearbox, muscular differentials, and substantial driveshafts. Also making their way to the supercar are upgraded Brembo brakes, a revamped suspension unit, and a continuously adjustable damping Bilstein system.
Bob Laishley, the global sports car program director at Nissan, in a press release said, “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”.
