The two brands team-up to redesign the GT-R Nismo.

To celebrate 50 years of the GT-R and Italdesign, the company unveiled a GT-R prototype together. This one-off collaboration is based on the GT-R Nismo and is called the GT-R50. The development, engineering and building was handled by Italdesign, while the design was handled by Nissan’s London and San Diego design centres.

The prototype is longer, wider and lower than the Nismo. The car’s 3.8-litre V6 engine in this car makes 720hp and 780Nm. The car is fitted with race-spec turbochargers, a larger intercooler system, adjustable dampers, and heavy-duty crankshaft, pistons, bearings and connecting rods.

“How often do you get to ask, ‘What if we created a GT-R without limits,’ and then actually get to build it?” said Nissan design boss Alfonso Albaisa. “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. So to celebrate this convergence, Nissan and Italdesign created this custom GT-R to mark 50 years of engineering leadership.”
