Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign Shown in Production Form

Ordering has officially begun

Nissan revealed the production version of the GT-R50 by Italdesign, and sure enough, it stays true to the concept. Orders have begun, but only 50 copies will be sold.

The concept had a gray and gold exterior, but customers can specify whichever color combination they'd like on their own model. As our friends over at sister pub Motor Trend learned while driving the prototype, all 50 copies will feature a different design so that no two are alike. Buyers can choose different colors and packages to customize the interior.

The supercar celebrates the 50th anniversary of the GT-R in 2019 and Italdesign in 2018. It started life as a 600-hp GT-R Nismo, but Nissan tweaked the engine to produce a lot more power. Under the sheet metal, a 3.8-liter V-6 makes a whopping 710 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Along with a more potent engine, the GT-R50 has an adjustable rear wing, a revised Bilstein suspension damping system, improved Brembo brakes, and a roofline that has been lowered more than 2 inches.

If you're interested in one of the 50 copies, you'll have to contact Italdesign. Prices start at 990,000 euros before taxes and options, or roughly $1.1 million at today's exchange rates. Deliveries will run from 2019 into 2020.

In 2011, Subaru brought back the STI sedan after what felt like they’d been testing the waters with their five-door hatchback. Many enthusiasts believed the hatch to be “less STI”, so the Subie faithful were delighted once the news of a lower, wider and meaner sedan would be returning. Sexy features like a quad exhaust,

Aside from what most automotive journalists think, the DMC-12 DeLorean was one of the dopest cars ever made. Of course, that isn’t due to its 130hp fuel injected V6 engine or suspect build quality, but for its iconic role in the Back to the Future Trilogy and also for its unforgettable, boxy design, brushed stainless

It wasn’t the all-too-familiar Initial D series, nor was it the almost natural association with drifting that pulled Lester Donis’s attention to his two-toned 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS. It also wasn’t a feature story or any sort of social media influence that nudged him toward the iconic hatchback. Interestingly enough, his childhood encounter with a
