It’s been in the works for years, but Nissan fans have finally been granted an official look at the production example of the GT-R50 by Italdesign. Initially revealed back in 2018 at Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new GT-R is the first major update to the Nissan mainstay in nearly 13 years. Turning to the Italian design and engineering company to develop the highly-limited ride, the GT-R50 features a knifelike aesthetic that looks straight out of Blade Runner.

For the vehicle’s inner-workings, the two company’s have utilized larger turbochargers from the GT3 race car, with the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 now generating 710 horsepower. This is matched by a Nismo suspension system, with more air vents added in the front to complement the updated design and performance. Other alterations to the vehicle include a roof that Italdesign has lowered 2.1 inches, a redesigned rear window line, an increased bulge on the hood, and stretched headlights.

Production has officially started for the GT-R50 with a total of 50 units being made. Priced at $1.1 million USD, deliveries of the vehicle will begin at the end of 2020, with the rest of the vehicles arriving in early 2021.
