The Japanese car marker Nissan, is upping its game and bringing to life the most powerful Nissan GT-R50 to market anyone has ever seen. Some car enthusiasts are referring to it as the greatest “Godzilla” ever!
Its been over a year now ever since Nissan revealed the limited-edition GT-R50 as a concept and later as a production model. Now, we get to see it in real action as soon as late next year once production begins.
Nissan will soon be making deliveries to customers interested in getting their hands on the limited-edition supercar designed in cooperation with Italdesign. The GT-R50 will be displayed during the 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The Nissan GT-R50 is seen as the ‘ultimate expression’ of Japanese craftsmanship. When one looks at the long history behind the GT-R line, you begin to understand why it is regarded as one of Japan’s most iconic production cars to ever grace the market.
According to Nissan, they plan to produce just 50 examples of the GT-R50 with “a significant number of deposits already taken” from the manufacturer. Customers who have already put an order are currently working with the brand on the exact specifications of their cars and, meanwhile, a limited number of reservations is still available.
Italdesign, an Italian based design company in Turin, came up with the concepts for the GT-R50 giving it a much more pronounced hood, bigger wheel flairs, cooling inlays and a gorgeous looking grill to top it off.
“Our customers have relished the personalized experience provided by Italdesign, who have a long tradition in the exclusive field of ultra-rare, bespoke high-performance vehicles,” Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan, said. “Their experience with the GT-R50 has been incredible and I can say first-hand that each car will certainly be a standalone masterpiece.”

According to the press release, demand for the production version of the car has received a lot of orders with a significant number of deposits already taken, and customers across the globe are in the process of selecting personal specifications for their vehicles.
That will make the already limited car — of which only 50 will be produced — even more attractive to collectors. A limited number of reservations for the remaining models are still available.
The GT-R50 has been hand-assembled by engineers with Formula racing pedigrees from Nissan’s NISMO division and have tuned the GT3-spec twin-turbochargers and 3.6-liter V6 to produce 110 more horses, giving the GT-R50 a grand total of 710 hp.
The Japanese car marker collaborated with Italdesign to create the model, based on the latest Nissan GT-R NISMO, in commemoration of the 50th anniversaries of the GT-R in 2019 and Italdesign in 2018
The GT-R50 is expected to cost a whopping $1.1 million (UGX 4,042,431,800) which is roughly five times the price of GT-R Nismo, upon which it’s based.
In Japan, customers can now purchase a GT-R50 by Italdesign through SCI Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of VT Holdings, which has been appointed official importer and distributor for these exclusive cars in the country.
If you’re interested in purchasing the limited-edition, its best to contact Nissan online before the finalized GT-R50 debuts at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
