Italdesign GT-R50 confirmed for production

Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign to enter production in 50 unit limited run

Nissan Now Taking Orders for the Ultra-Chic GT-R50

Those wishing to express an interest in being among those fifty owners can visit www.GT-R50.nissan with deliveries set to begin in 2019 and continue into 2020.

Nissan has opened up the order forms for its limited run of anniversary-celebrating ItalDesign GT-R50 and revealed images of the production-spec auto.

While the exterior remains true to the concept vehicle, the interior bears more in common with other GT-R variants than the show auto.

The Japanese automaker says the production car's exterior is "virtually unchanged" from the concept vehicle that debuted at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. Nissan has now confirmed its production plans and offered up pricing on the auto. That is one expensive Nissan.

The two-tone prototype seen at last summer's Goodwood Festival of Speed was painted grey with gold accents, and while all cars are expected to follow its layout, Nissan says that the fifty customers will be given the opportunity to spec their preferred colour combination as well as pick out custom interior colours and packages. 50 lucky people will contact Italdesign through their website, and they'll get the privilege of paying 990,000 euro (about $1.1 million) for one of its cars. In fact, the car's exterior will be virtually unchanged from the coupe that was shown at Goodwood earlier this year, based on the GT-R Nismo and styled in collaboration with Pininfarina.

Developed to celebrate the 50 anniversaries of the GT-R and Italdesign, the ultra-exclusive GT-R50 will be limited to strictly 50 cars.

Aside from gaining more power, the R50 comes with a reworked suspension with a continuously adjustable damping Bilstein system and has upgraded Brembo brakes. Other changes include a reinforced six-speed dual-clutch gearbox, beefier differentials, and stronger driveshafts necessary to cope with the extra power.

Nissan will start handing over the keys to the customers from 2019.
