Nissan GT-R 50 by Italdesign - Tazio Nuvolari circuit



Watch and hear the first production version of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign as it laps the Tazio Nuvolari circuit in Italy.

Nissan and Italy-based Italdesign combine forces to craft a limited-edition version of the GT-R, blending Japanese engineering excellence and Italian design flair and craftsmanship. Each Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign are hand-built and limited to just 50 vehicles.

A NISMO-tuned, twin-turbo V6 capable unleashes 720 PS of fury through a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission with a revised “R mode” that shifts faster and optimizes gear selections. Just like the NISMO GT-R it’s based on, it features the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system for optimal traction and handling.

The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign reimagines the R35 GT-R with crisp design elements, a lower roofline, stretched and more aggressive headlights, a futuristic rear end with an adjustable rear wing and ending with the four legendary afterburner taillights that seem like they were plucked right out of the future.
