Following an initial announcement, the physical creation of the concept car showed off the future of the Japanese automotive company expressing its roaring twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 engine that makes 710 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque with every turn. Assisted by a Brembo brake system, revised Bilstein damping system and sleek power bulge hood, lowered roofline, “samurai blade” cooling outlet and large adjustable rear wing, the car shocked the crowd on hand. A co-creation from Nissan and Italdesign, the concept car come to life is a celebration of 50 years of GT-R and the design and engineering company’s 50th anniversary. Building upon the latest GT-R NISMO, the GT-R50 brings together a European-style sensibility with Japanese performance and Italian craftsmanship.
