First announced in 2018, the limited edition GT-50 would have been presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March; however, the event was canceled due to the new coronavirus pandemic. Now, Nissan and Italdesign have finally shown the finished version of the vehicle and experts say it was worth the wait.
Designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GT-R and Italdesign, the vehicle looks almost identical to the concept that was first shown almost two years ago. However, the renowned design and engineering house has adopted a more elongated version and has made some important changes.
However detailed and elegant the design of a sports car may be, the look alone is not enough to justify its very high price - when you understand the engines and details of the car, everything starts to make sense.
The model is equipped with a 3.8-liter twin-turbine, built by hand, which has been specially tuned to produce 710 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torsion. It offers 110 more horses than the older model, produced in 600 units.
Nissan and Italdesign will produce only 50 copies of the model, which will cost 1.1 million dollars, with deliveries starting later this year.
