Nissan GT-R50 Limited Production Run Confirmed, Priced At $1.1 Million

Nissan was willing to put the GT-R50 prototype into production – and that they will do, making just 50 units, each one priced at €990,000 (equal to $1,124,410) in Europe, before taxes and optional extras.

Design-wise, the exterior will remain identical to that of the concept that was first shown to the world at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year, although customers will be able to specify their own exterior and interior color choices.

“The reaction from Nissan fans around the world – and potential customers of the GT-R50 – has greatly exceeded our expectations”, said Nissan’s Global Sports Car Program Director, Bob Laishley. “These 50 cars, which celebrate 50 years of the GT-R, as well as 50 years of Italdesign, will be rolling tributes to Nissan’s engineering leadership and rich sports car heritage for a long time to come.”

Customer deliveries of the GT-R50 by Italdesign will commence in 2019 and the final examples of the car will be shipped the following year.

Based on the 2018 GT-R Nismo, the GT-R50 features a distinctive bodywork and a special interior layout, as well as Bilstein adjustable dampers and Brembo brakes.

The engine has been optimized with new internals, and it now pushes out a staggering 720 PS (710 hp / 530 kW) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque.

Before hitting assembly, the vehicle will be on display at the Nissan Gallery in Yokohama, Japan, from December 7.

    I was going to ask why this was in blue, but then I remembered the Skyline.

    As cool and unique of a car this is, the styling just doesn’t ring 7 figures to me. Also being based on a 10 year old Nissan isn’t helping its case much.

    • Mike anonymous

      People seem to be split on the styling.

      This seems more like what Bugatti did with the Divo, or TouringSuperlegerra & Alfa Romeo with the Disco Volante. A special edition vehicle of an iconic vehicle to celebrate (a figure, record, a moment in history, or in this case ‘a passage of time’ for) it’s 50th anniversary. Something almost of a ‘coach built’ vehicle.

      This is likely going to be the ‘send-off vehicle’ to the (not to shabby looking (after over a decade) current generation) GT-R, before they time likely about a year off from making GT-R’s and then return with the next generation.
      Considering there will only be 50 made for the entire world, the people who are likely to buy this are going to be exotic car collectors, alongside people who are simply huge fans of the GT-R or of italidesign.

      …. Also (on a completely unrelated note) I really like your profile picture.

    Nah, just make a new GT-R please.

    A million for a Nissan ? Come on ! I love the GTR but that’s ridiculous !

    It’s special, but not beautiful. The interior is ok but nothing shouts a 1million dollar car.

  • TheBelltower

    Unless this thing is made of titanium and contains NASA-style tech that somehow reinvents what a “car” is, there is no reason that a conventional car from a mainstream car manufacturer should cost $1.1M. We saw how well the $300k LFA sold.

  • ErnieB

    Redunculous! It’s nice and all but $1 mil. No F-ing way!

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Madness.

  • Jason Miller

    Only people complaining about the price in here are people who could never afford one.

    They’ll sell every single one of them.

    • El de Ngaan

      I couldn’t have said it better. They probably don’t even own the “standard” GT-R let alone afford it.

    • Mr. EP9

      Regardless of the fact, there is nothing about the car that justifies its price tag.

    • Scherpereel Clement

      1Million for a F40 is ok not for a GTR based supercar !

  • nastinupe

    The definition of worth is the value equivalent to that of someone or something under consideration; the level at which someone or something deserves to be valued or rated.

    Apparently it is worth it BECAUSE they are all going to sell. If they don’t then you would be correct. Now if you added the two words “to me”, then you would be correct, however, since you didn’t, the way that you worded your rebuttal is, in fact, incorrect.

    • Kash

      I stand by my rebuttal in its entirety. The car’s value is fueled solely by the exclusivity factor and not the performance or the materials, or anything else but a bodykit and a limited production put on by the manufacturer. It’s inflation and when these cars are trading hands at $600k-800k in 5 years, or not moving at all at a price over their original MSRP, we’ll see how much they’re worth then.

      • nastinupe

        Name one exclusive car based on an already semi exclusive car that has dropped in value. Such as a Lamborghini or Porsche or Ferrari variant. They all go up in value. Why, because once they are all accounted for only a few are up for sale in the entire world at the same time. So people run up the cost every time one is on the market.

        I believe that you underestimate the power of the exclusivity factor. It drives cost.

  • Astonman

    Nice profile but just not a fan of the 3/4 shot from behind where it shows the saggy ass. And it being painted gold really magnafies it. Congrats to whoever buys it.

  • SpongeBob99Swell

    This would honestly be a great design for the R36 GT-R… just overhaul it already!

    Toyota will make a Corolla in a limited number of 30 and will price them at 1M for its exclusivity.
