The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign made its first public appearance in Tokyo on September 23, Sunday.

Continuing on its world tour, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign made its way to the home of the GT-R in Tokyo – for its first reveal at Daikanyama T-site for a “Morning Cruise” event with media, Nissan GT-R enthusiasts and automobile fans.

Nissan also brought from its heritage collection, the 1996 NISMO GT-R LM BCNR33 and the 1972 Skyline 2000GT-R Racing Concept (KPGC110). GT-R owners in Japan also came in full force filling up the parking lots at the event.

The first-ever collaboration between Nissan and Italdesign, the GT-R50 prototype may become the blueprint for an extremely limited run of hand-built production vehicles.

The prototype commemorates the 50th anniversaries of the Nissan GT-R, in 2019, and Italdesign, in 2018.
