Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the Nissan GT-R in partnership with coachmakers Italdesign. In celebration, the Japanese carmaker has tapped the European company for a prototype redesign dubbed the GTR-50. Initial sketches are based on the 2018 GT-R Nismo and will likely signify potential plans for the next-gen R35.
As seen above, bespoke is the design of choice. The body is a sleek “liquid kinetic gray” color with contrasting “energetic sigma gold” exteriors. Up front, the car boasts a gold-detailed grille, while the hood at the back features a power bulb and thick LED headlights.

Under the trunk is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with Nismo upgrades; larger turbos, intercoolers, and crankshaft pistons alongside connecting rods and bearings. Speed wise the car is projected to reach 710 horsepower at 7100 rpm with custom 21-inch carbon-fiber wheels assisting for smooth driving.
Inside, the upholstery is a clean black leather finish, for safety, comfort, and much class. The car is expected to make its European debut next month. For more details, visit Italdesign.
