We've got some good and bad news for Nissan GT-R fans. The good news is that stunning Nissan GT-R50 designed by Nissan and Italdesign won't just be a fancy one-off concept. The companies are prepared to build 50 units of the sports car, provided it's received well at its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The bad news of course is that there will only be 50 examples of this amazing car.

It's also going to be eye-wateringly expensive. While a top-rung 2018 Nissan GT-R Nismo starts at $177,185, the GT-R50 will cost an estimated 900,000 euros. At current exchange rates, that's about $1,060,000. For some additional perspective, that's more than a McLaren Senna, which comes in just under the $1,000,000 mark.

Based on a production 2018 Nissan GT - R NISMO model, the unique car commemorates the 50 th anniversaries of both the GT - R and Italdesign and will make its debut in Europe next month. “How often do you get to ask, ‘What if we created a GT - R without limits,’ and then actually get to build it

So to celebrate this convergence, Nissan and Italdesign created this custom GT - R to mark 50 years of engineering leadership.” Italdesign developed, engineered and built the car.

But this is a seriously exclusive GT-R that marks the important 50th anniversary of the model, and that of Italdesign. It also features radically different styling from a typical GT-R, and each one will be customized to the buyer's taste. Not only that, but the forged internals, race car turbochargers, upgraded suspension and brakes all ensure this 710-horsepower GT-R is the best performing version of the car to come from Nissan directly. Well, at least the best performing one, so far.

The next GT-R won't look like the GT-R50."Cars like GT-R, Z, and Q60, these are icons. These show what you can do. Mech, aero and structurally...The GTR 50 is not the next GTR. It's a celebration about the people behind GT-R. They are really not concept cars, they are collector cars," Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan Senior Vice President for Global Design, told Indian Autos Blog.
