The limited-run sports vehicle celebrates five decades of both the GT-R nameplate and design house Italdesign and will be "virtually unchanged" in road-going form from the prototype revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

The Japanese automaker revealed the auto at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July to celebrate the 50th anniversary (hence the name and production number) of the GT-R nameplate, first appearing on the original Skyline GT-R as revealed at the 1968 Tokyo Motor Show. 50 lucky people will contact Italdesign through their website, and they'll get the privilege of paying 990,000 euro (about $1.1 million) for one of its cars. The vehicle is based on the NISMO version of the GT-R making 720ps. The starting price for each?

Note that the expensive auto with a 720-horsepower engine went past a Nissan GT-R NISMO.

Nissan has confirmed the final production design for the Nissan GT-R50 and opened the door for orders of the limited-edition supercar.

Not everyone is a fan of the looks on the limited-run Nissan GT-R50 by Italian design company Italdesign, whose name sums its goal up well. But when ordering the serial auto buyers can choose any combination of colors. Dubbed the GT-R50, this.

That all adds up to a 110 horsepower and 94 pound-foot bump, the 3.8-liter V-6 in the production GT-R50 set to punch out a full 710 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque.

The other, unspoken question was how many buyers might there be for a specially modified, in-your-face version of the GT-R costing 10 times more than the stock model? Also making their way to the supercar are upgraded Brembo brakes, a revamped suspension unit, and a continuously adjustable damping Bilstein system.
