Nissan GT-R50 Coming To The US Next Month

After making its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, at the hands of two racing drivers, the Nissan GT-R50 will cross the Atlantic Ocean in a few weeks.

The impressive-looking project penned by Italdesign will be on display at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, between August 23 and 26.

Prior to using its U.S. visa, the Nissan GT-R50 will stop at Spa Francorchamps, in Belgium, at the 24 Hour race, next weekend. Part of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, the event will see Lucas Odronez and Alex Buncombe, the drivers who demonstrated the GT-R50 on Lord March’s domain, race for GT Sport Motul Team RJN.

“It was an honor and a privilege to be the first driver to drive the GT-R50 up the hill at Goodwood”, said Ordonez. “The car felt amazing, and the lines and the design outside, plus the interior of the car are just beautiful. The mix of Japanese and Italian influences match perfectly.”

Nissan has no further stops planned for the GT-R50, as subsequent to its arrival in the US of A, the car will head home, to Japan.

However, this might not be the last time we see or hear about it, as it could enter production in a very limited number of just 50 units. Each one might cost around $1 million, and besides the exterior and interior work made by Italdesign, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine might welcome a bump in power. In particular, the reworded engine could produce up to 710hp (720PS / 530kW) and 575lb-ft (780Nm) of torque, obtained via the introduction of larger turbochargers and other engine internals.

    Performance aside, I think this is one of the ugliest car designs on the planet.

      Disagree. Get rid of the golden nonsense, and the car looks good. This is a subjective matter, though, so all is fine.

        No worries, I don’t need to be liked. I just never understood or appreciated the gtr styling from day one. The performance, however, is awesome ridiculous!!

        No- It’s ugly… Its also gaudy, cheap looking and juvenile The gold paint may actually help it in a way that suggest its not to be taken seriously. Thank God!
