News > Nissan Plus Italdesign Equals a Limited Edition GT-R50 Prototype

Nissan Cape Town - Nissan and Italdesign have created the Nissan GT-R50 in their first collaboration. These mega houses of design ingenuity partnered to build the prototype to celebrate both brand’s 50th anniversaries.

Italdesign developed, engineered and manufactured the prototype vehicle. While the fresh exterior and interior design was headed by Nissan. The complete vehicle will make its first appearance in Europe.


The Nissan Limited Edition GT-R50 prototype will have a distinctive gold-rimmed grill  that stretches between the elegant LED front headlights. The bonnet has an elegant sweep that give it a bold and impressive profile.

The roofline has been lowered by 54 mm  , while slightly increased outer portions give the roof a muscular look. The signature GT-R logo has been used in key spots around the vehicle, including behind the front wheels and in the gold inlay that extends from the bottom of the doors to the shoulder line.

The rear highlights the car's wide track, with firm muscular flares around the wheels. The shoulder line tapers around the base of the rear window and draws toward the center of the boot lid. The rear window line descends longer and deeper than on the standard GT-R.

The GT-R's bold circular red rings stand stark against the golden central portion of the boot structure. The large, adjustable rear wings complete the overall look. Four custom wheels emphasise the car's bold stance, with an  exterior finished in grey and energetic gold.

The inside of the Nissan GT-R50 prototype marries modern comfortability and high-performance. Carbon fibre finishes the custom-built steering wheel's central hub, center console, instrument panel and door linings, along with black Alcantara and fine Italian leather on the seats. Gold embellishments enhance the instrument panel, door panels and switchgear.
