This Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is for sale in Canada with a seven-figure price tag.

The Nissan GT-R50 is super rare: only 19 units were built.

Based on a standard GT-R, the body was re-engineered by Italdesign with some stylish add-ons.


It now has a pointy hood and a much wider bumper at the front, lower side skirts and side sills, and a massive rear wing.

Overall, it looks a lot more aggressive and muscular than the standard GT-R.

The model you see here is finished in Liquid Silver with red Nismo accents.

The cabin is equally stylish, with a combo of black leather and black Alcantara with contrast stitching in red.

It uses the same 3.8-liter V6 engine as the standard model but it now delivers 710 hp and 585 ft-lb of torque thanks to the upgraded turbos that Nissan fitted.

This limited-edition supercar was created by Nissan in partnership with Italian design company Italdesign to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Skyline GT-R.

Italdesign and Nissan originally planned 50 units in total but they had to settle for 19 due to production issues.

So what’s the price?

That’s the million-dollar question.

Literally, that is, because the GT-R50 had a retail price of $1.1 million.

This is chassis no. 11, and it is currently available from Legendary Motorcar with a ‘price-on-request’ label attached to it.

However, considering its rarity, you can reasonably expect an asking price between $1.2m and $1.8m.

About the Nissan GT-R

Launched in 2007, the Nissan GT-R is the successor to the iconic Skyline GT-R R34, the car that was immortalized in a long list of Hollywoood movies and video games.

More to the point, the GT-R R34 is the car that Paul Walker drove in the Fast & Furious.

The craziest part about the modern-day GT-R is the money-for-value ratio.

When it first came out, it gave you access to 480 hp and supercar performance for just $60,000.
