Nissan GT-R50 Prototype Breaks Cover, Comes with 700 PS

Italian design and engineering company Italdesign recently announced a unique Nissan GT-R to celebrate its 50th anniversary, which happens to coincide with that of the Nissan GT-R! It's based on a 2018 Nissan GT-R Nismo and while you can still put your finger on it and say it's a GT-R, the alien-esque looks set it apart from the regular GT-Rs.
Italdesign and Nissan also reworked the car's cabin, eliminating the standard dashboard-mounted infotainment screen and refinishing the dash in Alcantara. There's no information as yet on whether it will be made available to customers or if elements of the dramatic restyle and engineering upgrades will filter through to future production cars. At the back, the quad circular tail lamps have been kept to identify it as a GT-R, but the curves around it have been created to make Godzilla more muscular to deliver a visually higher striking impact.
At the back, the round taillights get a reinterpreted, floating design while on top of them stretches an adjustable rear wing. The hood now has a more prominent power bulge and is flanked by thin, boomerang-shaped LED headlamps.
Can this point to the next GT-R? So to celebrate this convergence, Nissan and Italdesign created this custom GT-R to mark 50 years of engineering leadership. While a standard 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo generates 592bhp, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign has 710bhp and 780Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a dual-clutch six-speed transmission.
Bilstein also fitted a continuously adjustable damping system for the suspension, while the wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, measuring 255/35 R21 in the front and 285/30 R21 in the rear.
Gold highlights are used throughout the dramatically restyled exterior, while the car's original features have been exaggerated, and aerodynamically improved.

With respect to engine, Nissan GT-R50 is powered with handmade twin-turbo 3.8 liter V6 unit and is upgraded by NISMO with larger GT3 competition-spec turbos, larger intercoolers, heavy-duty crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods and bearings. The steering wheel is bespoke and lots of Alcantara is used for the seats and other surfaces along with gold accents inside the auto.
