The very first-ever collaboration among Nissan and Italdesign, the GT-R50 prototype shown at Goodwood could turn out to be the blueprint for an incredibly restricted run of hand-constructed production autos. The automobile commemorates the 50th anniversaries of each the GT-R, in 2019, and Italdesign, in 2018. Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s senior vice president of international design and style, mentioned, “The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the ideal setting to showcase the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign, which combines power and artistry to celebrate 50 years of inspiring the dreams of our customers. Just like the prototype itself, Goodwood is a celebration of design, performance, a little indulgence and a lot of love of historic and future automotive creativity. It’s the perfect setting to showcase a unique vehicle that will stir the imagination of people to dream even bigger.” Pending the GT-R50 by Italdesign’s reception at Goodwood and other international appearances in the coming months, a consumer version inspired by the prototype could be developed. No a lot more than 50 units would be made by Italdesign, with every vehicle tailored for every consumer, with a cost estimated to begin at about €900,000. The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign begins with Nissan’s most recent GT-R NISMO and re-interprets it with a European-style sensibility, combining brute force with Italian craftsmanship and tailoring. With a particular energy plant that boasts up to 120PS more than the stock engine and chassis and driveline upgrades, overall performance backs up the new appear. Italdesign created and constructed the vehicle. Exterior and interior styles came from Nissan Design Europe and Nissan Design America.
