2001 GT-R Concept called, it wants it's base design back. xD
Ah good, so I wasn't the only one thinking of the GT-R Concept when seeing this.

Honestly though, I think it's a pretty good design and I don't even think the gaping mouth is that bad on this car. Though I personally wouldn't have gold on it.

Hopefully! Can’t complain about more GT-Rs!
The Gran Turismo tradition that shall never die,bring the GT-Rs

That was around my thoughts as well when I saw it; looks like an older concept of the GT-R.

That must be one of the most important concept cars of all time....because they actually made that into a real car and are still using it as inspiration for their designs

I still think that nose and the wheels top any version of the R35 for style.

I do very much like this one off, it has some nice detailing and ideas. Hopefully we do get in GT S.

I can't tell if you're trying to make a sarcastic remark or not, but none of what I said indicated otherwise.

WITH interior. Gotta add that to the request. ;)

...hold on a second. A Nissan GT-R that's actually looks at least remotely classy?
Considering that Toyota won LeMans not long ago...

Nissan says that depending on reception, the GTR-50 could enter an “extremely limited run” as a hand-built production vehicle. Initial price estimates place the GT-R50 at around 900,000 euros (a little over $1 million at the current exchange rates).

Nissan says that if the project gets green-lighted, no more than 50 examples will be hand-built by Italdesign, with each car tailored for each customer.

Now, I'm being greedy. I feel Nissan should do a Nismo Skyline. At first, my thoughts were to use the Q60. Make it RWD and have it race in the Virgin Australia Supercars series.

Im feeling, with this R-50, it should be RWD. Lamborghini did it with the Balboni. Audi has a RWD R8. A RWD(only) GT-R shows that heritage and might be a bit of a different animal to a normal R35.

I hate to be the one pointing this out, but... A million dollars for a Nissan? :confused:

That would kinda go against GT-R's heritage, as GT-Rs are most known for the ATTESA 4WD system, which, while isn't limited to GT-Rs, is its most notable and strongest trait.

R31, however had some sort of an RWD equivalent of GT-R, which is known as GTS-R.

People will buy it. Italdesign is working to break into Zagato's territory of building highly limited, hand built redesigns with a new line of supercars starting with the Zerouno with their new sub-division, so it's more the name you're buying than Nissan's.

It's likely the GT-R50 will be seen as the next vehicle in that line as the main company is owned by Lamborghini and has a long relationship with VAG.

Oh, poop, forgot about this one. Thanks for a reminder. 👍
In this case, making GT-R50 RWD would actually make sense in this context. Both RWD and 4WD scenarios are fine by me personally.

When I saw this car for the first time in my Insta's explore page I thought it was a typical fan render of what a future GT-R could look like, not a real car. I want to like it but I just can't. It looks weird to me. I personally prefer the 2001 concept and the 2007 GT-R (and pretty much every Skyline GT-R before them).

This car gotta be coming to GTS, sure hope so I wanna take it around Bathurst and Nordschleife lol. The heads up display is already the same as the GT3 GTR so that’s a start. (:
