Nissan and Italdesign have joined forces to create a special edition of the powerful GT-R coupe. It will be produced in only 50 copies. Two years ago, Nissan and Italdesign announced a collaboration to mark the 50th anniversary of the existence of both companies. The result was the Nissan GT-R50 concept by Italdesign.

The series version was to be launched at this year's Geneva Motor Show. As Geneva was cancelled due to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic, Nissan and Italdesign presented their production model at an online event.
