Description

I had a truly special opportunity to drive the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign! With a price tag of €1m plus taxes (or approx $1.2m) it's a celebration for the 50th anniversaries of both GT-R and Italdesign with a totally new look formed on a Nismo GT-R. With very few outings to date, this is a really exclusive opportunity to get a feel for what it's like.

The GT-R50 by Italdesign has an entirely new body wrapped over the latest generation of Nismo GT-R. It sits 54mm lower and as such as a very sleep appearance, with significantly more attractive bodywork than found on the regular GT-R models. In terms of performance it has a 3.8l TT V6 but now runs 710hp/780nm instead of the stock 600hp/652nm, with a reinforced gearbox, diff and driveshafts with improved Bilstein suspension and Brembo brakes too.

During my visit to Dubai, I was invited to head to the Dubai Autodrome to take part in an experience with the car out on track alongside perspective customers, giving me a very rare opportunity to present the GT-R50 to you on video. Of course it was a fantastic day, and an amazing chance to drive! Joining me in the video is Suhail Jefferies, father of racing driving Axcil Jefferies.
