Nissan injects Italian design into sports vehicle concept, creating GT-R50

Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign debuts in Europe next month
Troy Mann | 01 July, 2018, 18:59

A reinforced dual-clutch sequential six-speed rear transaxle and stronger differentials and drive shafts sends the power to the wheels.

Unfortunately for fans and collectors the Nissan GT-R50 won't be going into production. The famous "samurai blade" vent behind the front wheels gets even more prominent design with golden inlays.

As you'd expect, the inside of the vehicle is a heady cocktail of Alcantara, leather and carbonfire - and there are flashes of the same gold finish you'll find on the exterior of the auto.

But you'll also note the dramatic new gold surround framing the GT-R50's massive grille - that being being the appropriate color for celebrating a 50 anniversary.

Nissan emphasises that this is not the next-generation GT-R, but rather "an exciting celebration of two anniversaries in a provocative and creative way".

There are no plans to deliver a limited run of the Italdesign GT-R50, but Nissan say it will make its public debut next month in Europe.

Based on the GT-R Nismo, the GT-R50 has been fettled by Nissan's motorsport division, with the 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 now producing an estimated 720 PS at 7,100 rpm and 780 Nm of torque from 3,600 to 5,600 rpm.

The front hood gets a bigger power bulge and thin LED headlights.

Inside, carbon-fibre and Alcantara are the materials of choice, along with more gold accents, and there are new switches and steering wheel, but fundamentally it's familiar GT-R. The most important modification is the roofline that is now 54 millimeters lower than the original and features a lower center section and raised outer portions to "give the roof profile a muscular look". Custom wheels - 21 x 10 inches in front and 21 x 10.5 inches at the rear - accentuate the car's bold stance. The prototype is called the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign and it is the companies first ever collaboration.

What do you think of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign?

Race-spec turbochargers have been fitted, as have a larger intercooler system, adjustable dampers and heavy-duty crankshaft, pistons, bearings and connecting rods. "Two different carbon-fiber finishes are extensively used across the center console, instrument panel and door linings, along with black Alcantara and fine black Italian leather on the seats". The steering wheel is bespoke and lots of Alcantara is used for the seats and other surfaces along with gold accents inside the vehicle. This is a rare window in time when two big moments intersect: 50 years of Italdesign shaping the automotive world and 50 years of Nissan generating excitement through our iconic GT-R. Other updates include Bilstein adjustable suspension, Brembo six- and four-piston brakes, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.
