$1.12-Million Nissan GT-R50 Revealed In Production Form

$1.12-Million Nissan GT-R50 Revealed In Production Form Nissan is now accepting orders and will produce only 50 cars. At $175,450, the 2019 GT-R Nismo is by far the most expensive new Nissan money can buy. Or is it? First shown at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the GT R-50 by Italdesign has been confirmed for production with an eye-watering starting price of €990,000 before taxes and options. Nissan hasn’t announced pricing and/or availability for the U.S. market, but if we were to convert nearly one million euros to U.S. dollars, the supercar’s starting price would have to be a hefty $1.12 million. © Motor1.

Nissan says its engineers have increased the stiffness of the Sylphy 's body and improved suspension and steering feel -- all changes that should make this compact sedan more fun to drive. Perhaps just as importantly, the 2020 Nissan Sylphy is getting some much-needed cabin and safety upgrades.

What that means for us is that, in all likelihood , we get an early view of North America’s next generation 2020 Sentra compact sedan, expected later this year. Well, the current Nissan Sentra first debuted as the Sylphy in China and the same scenario may repeat with the new generation model.

Nissan's Sylphy line is getting ready to observe its 20th birthday. As a present of sorts, the fine folks in Yokohama are celebrating by rolling out an all-new model at the Shanghai Motor Show, aka AutoChina. Why is this news important to us Americans? Because if history is any guide, we will eventually know this Sylphy by a different name: Sentra.

What that means for us is that, in all likelihood , we get an early view of North America’s next generation 2020 Sentra compact sedan, expected later this year. Well, the current Nissan Sentra first debuted as the Sylphy in China and the same scenario may repeat with the new generation model.

Nissan Sentra has embodied the brand’s latest design language for its sedans, already seen on the Nissan Maxima and the Nissan Altima. Longer, wider and

While Nissan officials are stopping short of confirming it, minus a few market-specific tweaks, we believe the vibrant orange sedan seen here is the 2020 Nissan Sentra. Given that the current B17 generation has been around since 2013 and has never really been considered a top-flight competitor, this new model can't arrive soon enough.

So, what does the 2020 Nissan Sylphy bring to the table? Well, to begin with, it adopts the Japanese automaker's current design language, which, while not going to go down in the annals of history as a great beauty, is a significant improvement over the outgoing model. That means there's a version of Nissan's signature V-motion grille, a pair of narrower headlamps, and a far sleeker overall aesthetic than today's Sylphy and Sentra models. Unsurprisingly, the new design looks a lot like today's 2019 Altima, as well as the new 2020 Nissan Versa sedan that was revealed just this past weekend.

Expect to see the 2020 Nissan Sylphy at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show on April 16. The US -Spec Sentra is also expected to make its debut sometime this year, possibly at the 2019 New York Auto Show, which starts just one day after the Shanghai Show.

Nissan is also updating its long-serving HR16DE four-cylinder engine for the Chinese-market Sylphy. So far, the company is making no mention of power, torque or efficiency figures in its press release for the third-generation engine. However, they do note the presence of an updated Xtronic continuously variable transmission.

Nissan says its engineers have increased the stiffness of the Sylphy's body and improved suspension and steering feel -- all changes that should make this compact sedan more fun to drive.

Perhaps just as importantly, the 2020 Nissan Sylphy is getting some much-needed cabin and safety upgrades. Nissan is quick to call out the Sylphy's new single-switch HVAC control system, as well as a color 7-inch TFT screen in the instrument binnacle and an 8-inch screen in the center stack.

Safety comes courtesy of Nissan's Intelligent Mobility program and consists of forward collision warning, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, cross traffic alert and Intelligent Driving Alert, a basic monitor to curb drowsy and distracted driving. Not bad for a car at the Sylphy's end of the luxury/value continuum (especially in China, which has been somewhat slower to adopt advanced driver assist features than other markets).

Nissan also makes a point of calling out that the new 2020 Sylphy has a coefficient of drag that is the same as its aging GT-R sports coupe -- 0.26. (Somehow, we don't see owners casually slipping this tidbit into date-night conversations.)

"The all-new Nissan Sylphy represents the full landing of Nissan Intelligent Mobility in China," said Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president of Nissan, in a statement. "With an even more stylish design and advanced connectivity and safety technologies, the all-new Nissan Sylphy gives customers a whole new level of confidence and excitement, befitting of a leading family sedan."

Now, how much of this ends up on the US-market Sentra remains to be seen, but we're willing to bet we'll end up seeing nearly all of it in US showrooms in the not-too-distant future.
