€1-million Nissan GT-R50 revealed in production form

€1-million Nissan GT-R50 revealed in production form

Nissan will sell just 50 of the supercars to the first of those who place a reservation either with Italdesign or through the model's standalone website. They will furthermore be able to choose from various interior colours and packages. The design is particularly dramatic at the rear, where floating LED taillights and an enormous adjustable rear wing leave you in no doubt as to the car's intent. Well, the reception was good, the demand is there and Nissan are building 50 GT-R50 models.

To be sure, this isn't just any everyday version of the GT-R.

It will be on display at the Nissan Gallery in Yokohama from December 7. There are also more aggressive cams, bigger intercoolers and other modifications.

The engine on the GT-R50 is further mated to a reinforced dual-clutch six-speed gearbox. The differentials and driveshaft are similarly armored. The power output from the 3.8-litre V6 is 710bhp, which presumably means - like the concept - it's borrowed a pair of turbochargers from the Nismo GT3 version of the GT-R.

At first, this model tweaked with the help of Italdesign was presented only as a show auto of sorts.

"Pricing of the NISMO-tuned, 720 horsepower GT-R by Italdesign will start at 990,000 euros before taxes and options".

"How often do you get to ask, 'What if we created a GT-R without limits, ' and then actually get to build it?" Apparently, the answer was "enough". As a result of tuning the engine produces 720 HP (780 nm) versus standard 600 HP (652 nm), which features Nissan GT-R Nismo - the anniversary sports vehicle is built on a version of "NISMO".

"The reaction from Nissan fans around the world-and potential customers of the GT-R50-has greatly exceeded our expectations", stated sports vehicle program director Bob Laishley.
