Customers who slapped down the dough to get their own Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign should be pretty stoked right now. Customer deliveries of the limited edition supercar are scheduled to happen late 2020. Those who can’t wait to set their eyes on their own version can attend the 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March to see the first customer example on display, if they didn’t see it at the NISMO Festival held at the Fuji Speedway on December 8.
Evidently there are quite a few customers waiting to see the bespoke car in their driveway. Nissan is only planning on making 50 examples of the GT-R50, and “a significant number of deposits already taken.” Those customers who have placed a deposit have been working with Italdesign on the specifications for their cars, and that experience has been a good one so far. “Our customers have relished the personalized experience provided by Italdesign, who have a long tradition in the exclusive field of ultra-rare, bespoke high-performance vehicles. Their experience with the GT-R50 has been incredible and I can say first-hand that each car will certainly be a standalone masterpiece,” said Bob Laishley, the global sports car program director for Nissan. There are still a few cars left of the 50, if you’re interested and you have the requisite €990,000 ($1.12 million).
Nissan announced that customers will see delivery of their GT-R50s between late 2020 and early 2021 depending on their location. When they do get their car, they’ll be able to enjoy the modified twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine and its accompanying 710 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque. That beefed up power comes courtesy of the turbocharges that were recruited from the GT-R GT3 race car. Nissan also added in bigger intercoolers and high-flow fuel injectors and oil jets. Bilstein adaptive dampers were added and the six-speed dual-clutch transmission received an upgrade as well.
