Nissan and Italdesign’s GT-R50 has finally made its global debut. Limited to only 50 units, the car is meant to celebrate the 50 years anniversary of the GT-R and Italdesign.

The automakers released pictures of the production version of the GT-R50 in late 2019, ahead of its official debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March which got cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Since then we did not hear anything else about the project.

But fear not! The companies have finally showed off the finished version of the car on Wednesday and it’s as beautiful as you would expect. Sleek, futuristic and minimalistic. It’s beautiful!

The car will be powered by a hand-built 3.8 litre twin turbo V6 tuned to produce 710 horsepower (530kW) and 780 Nm of torque. That’s 110 more horsepower than what the GT-R Nismo has!

The version showcased on Wednesday is the first to roll of the production line and deliveries are expected to happen late this year and continue into the first part of next year. According to Nissan, in December 2019, they still had a “limited number of reservations available” so if you have a spare $1.6 million around get in touch with Nissan!
