The Japanese Car maker is launching a bank braking road star worth over N540 million to celebrate its 50th year anniversary of auto production
After a successful and efficient 50 years of automobile production, Nissan and its merger Italian company, italdesign is unveiling the latest of its GT-R Model to crown its golden year celebration. The latest GT-R50 is the result of a sort of ceremonious collaboration between the two companies and it is worth the long wait seeing the new road star come forth in style.
The new GT-R officially debuted in Europe this summer, and following a number of media test drive opportunities and several appearances during Monterey Car Week in California, the GT-R50 would make its final US appearance, not at an auto show or other major event, but at a Sunday morning cars-and-coffee meetup in Woodland Hills, California. The New car has a great body work to suit every eyes taste and in a way that captivates the mind of any beholder which makes it worth the exuberant price. The hood’s prominent power bulge retains the GT-R’s nostrils. The 21-inch wheels are borderline comically oversized. And those floating taillights are some of the coolest lamps fitted to any car, production or otherwise, ever.
The road beauty also houses a GT-R Nismo running gear which means power comes from a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, albeit with new turbochargers borrowed from the GT-R GT3 race car, larger intercoolers, stronger engine internals and axles, and a slightly revised dual-clutch transmission. The Japanese roadstar will run on a 650 horsepower with an adaptive suspension retuned to handle the GT-R50’s extra power and also a larger Brembo brakes which are fitted to cease all madness in a hurry. Talking about the outer beauty is least of what the beauty holds. The interior is as luxurious as the bodywork , starting from the entrance hideaway door handles like a regular GT-R, but they’re sort of sharp around the edges and not as easy to grasp which have you duck carefully as you enter.
The steering wheel, gear shifter and that same freaking plastic turn signal stalk from every other Nissan car, making the G50 an exclusive from any other. The infotainment screen is gone, the dash is finished in Alcantara and a vast majority of the interior panels are now made of carbon fiber. with basically all feature simplified, the interior still holds a beauty that is undefinable. The G50 which cost N544,500,000 ($1.5million) is not bad afterall for the whooping price.
