It looks mean. It has 530kW and 780 N.m. on tap It costs more than R16m. There will be only 50 ever made, but most of these have been snapped up in advance. It is the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign.
The final production model of this rare monster has been announced and will be on display at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2020. This production model closely matches the prototype version that stunned and surprised back in June 2018.
If there’s one car that needs no introduction it has to be the Nissan GT-R. Who can forget the “Godzilla” of performance cars when the Nissan GT-R appeared on the scene in the late 1980s? Car manufacturers stood in awe as it conquered all with stunning performance and looks to match even the biggest competitors. And that’s without even mentioning the Skyline GT-R models where it all began!
Nissan has published sketches of three concepts, each with five sets of double wheels but no engine, a high tech seat but no steering wheel, and allows you to race against the fastest without really moving much.
If there is one place you’d want to experience true automotive engineering, it has to be Germany’s EuroSpeedway in Lausitz. This race track has it all and the perfect locale to put the new 2020 GT-R NISMO to the test.
While there are many worthy locations around the world, Germany seems ideal for drivers to seamlessly combine high-speed road and track experiences. And that is why Nissan chose to showcase the GT-R NISMO’s “absolute total racing performance.”
It was another successful year at the 2019 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb as the Nissan GT-R proved, once again, its prowess winning the Modified Saloon and Supercar Categories. The competition has been running for 10 years and Nissan has dominated proceedings for the last three years and claiming King of the Hill seven times.
The Japanese automaker has announced the unveiling of the new Nissan IMQ concept electric SUV. So far, there hasn’t been too much information to go on but the teaser image clearly shows a futuristic crossover. Considering the smorgasbord of features and technologies, Nissan stated that the crossover “embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility and gives a sneak peek as to what might be in your future driveway.”
Since launching the first modern-day Nissan GT-R production model in 2007, the Japanese automaker stamped their authority in style. Subsequent models included the Black Edition, Nissan GT-R Premium, SpecV, GT-R Nismo and the GT-R Nismo N-Attack. Now, celebrating the car’s 50th anniversary, they have launched the Nissan GT-R50.
The two-door, high-performance Nissan GT-R made a huge splash when it was unveiled in 2007 as the successor to the Skyline, and the next-generation model is shaping up to be similarly disruptive to the supercar status quo. The details about the release of the long-awaited model is still firmly under wraps, but we do have a few tantalising titbits we can share in the meantime…
Few cars have garnered more of a reputation or have sparked more controversy than Nissan’s GT-R series. This stunning creation has gone neck and neck with some of the most acclaimed names in sports cars. It has, in various incarnations, triumphed over the Porsche 911 Turbo; the Audi A8; the BMW M3; and the Mitsubishi Evo. Widely hailed as one of the fastest road-legal production sports cars on the planet, the ultimate incarnation of this muscle car must be the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3. And it is about to go on sale.
Perhaps one of the most pre-eminent names in top-end commercial sportscars, the Porsche 911 GTS goes up against the people’s champion: the Nissan GT-R V.
At first glance, these two cars are nothing alike. The Porsche is the pinnacle of sports car sophistication, with a mile-long pedigree behind it. Even when shearing down the tarmac it exudes a sense of serenity and refinement. The GT-R, in contrast, looks like it has some muscle car in its genepool and might take a snap at strangers. Its aggressive scowl and loud engine take a very no-nonsense approach to performance.
