The Nissan GT-R denotes its 50th anniversary this year, so the Japanese automaker chose to celebrate in style. Nissan collaborated with incredible design firm Italdesign — which likewise commends its 50th commemoration this year — to make a coincidental custom GT-R, fittingly named GT-R50.
The GT-R50 was only a reason for creators to utilize their inventive muscles and manufacture an auto outside the imperatives of typical generation vehicles, Nissan design manager Alfonso Albaisa said in an announcement.
“Although this is not the next-generation GT-R, it is an exciting celebration of two anniversaries in a provocative and creative way — wrapping one of Nissan’s best engineering platforms and Japanese design with Italian coachbuilding,” Albaisa explained. Nissan’s in-house design team actually came up with the ideas. Italdesign, whose previous hits include everything from the Maserati Merak to the original Volkswagen Golf, was tasked with making them a reality.
The GT-R50 holds a similar general blueprint of the standard GT-R, and includes somewhat more pizazz. The rooftop is lower, the body sides are curvier, and the taillights stand pleased with the body, giving the backside a similarity to the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo from 2014.
Within, the progressions weren’t exactly as emotional. The inside appears to be like a standard GT-R lodge, yet is spruced up with an alternate blend of materials, including carbon fiber trim, and gold accents to coordinate the outside.
In the interior, the GT-R50 depends on the GT-R NISMO, the most great creation GT-R variation. Be that as it may, the hand-manufactured 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 presently delivers 710 drive and 575 pound-feet of torque, contrasted with 600 hp and 481 lb-ft in the stock GT-R NISMO. That is on account of bigger turbochargers obtained from the GT-R GT3 race auto, and a host different changes to the motor. The six-speed dual-clutch transmission, differentials, and driveshafts were beefed up to handle the extra power, and the suspension was revised as well.
The Nissan GT-R50 will make its dynamic debut on July 12 at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. It will participate in the event’s famous hill climb, much to the delight of GT-R fans around the world.
