Nissan has confirmed the production design of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign and has opened the official order books for the 50-vehicle limited run.

Pricing of the NISMO-tuned 720PS GT-R will start at €990,000 ($AU1.5 million) before taxes and options.

Nissan collaborated with Turin, Italy-based Italdesign to create the model, based on the latest Nissan GT-R NISMO, to celebrate the 50th anniversaries of the GT-R in 2019 and Italdesign in 2018.

While the prototype vehicle was finished in a special grey with gold accents, customers will be able to specify their preferred colour combinations for the production version. They also will be able to choose interior colours and packages.

“The reaction from Nissan fans around the world – and potential customers of the GT-R50 – has greatly exceeded our expectations,” said Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan. “These 50 cars, which celebrate 50 years of the GT-R as well as 50 years of Italdesign, will be rolling tributes to Nissan’s engineering leadership and rich sports car heritage for a long time to come.”

Deliveries of the GT-R50 will begin in 2019 and will continue through 2020.
