Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition: prices announced

The Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition, built to celebrate 50 years of the GT-R, is limited to just 50 units worldwide

Nissan has announced pricing information for the new GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition. It will cost £92,995 and will be built in a limited production run of just 50 units. Only 18 right-hand drive examples will reach the UK, with first deliveries expected in August.

The GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition was first unveiled at the 2019 New York Motor Show. It features a range of cosmetic and mechanical revisions including new 20-inch alloy wheels, a full-length racing stripe, reworked brakes, updated suspension and a host of “50th Anniversary Edition” badges.

Nissan’s latest special edition GT-R also marks the return of the brand’s famed “Bayside Blue” paint colour. It last featured on the legendary R34 and was retired in 2002 when the model was discontinued.

Inside, the Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition gets unique trim for the steering wheel and shift knob, as well as an Alcantara headliner, Alcantara-wrapped sunvisors and grey leather upholstery with Nissan’s “50th Anniversary Edition” logo embossed into the seat backs.

In addition to this special edition model, Nissan has updated the entire GT-R range, with fresh editions of the standard GT-R and GT-R Track Edition due for launch in 2020. Both models are powered by a revised version of the firm’s 3.8-litre V6 engine, fitted with new turbochargers, updated exhaust manifolds and a fresh titanium exhaust system.

The engine comes in two states of tune, with the standard version producing 557bhp and 633Nm of torque. The more focused Track Edition uses the same tune as the recently updated GT-R NISMO, producing 592bhp and 652Nm of torque.

Both engines feed their power to all four wheels via a revised version of Nissan’s six-speed dual-clutch transmission, with a refined “R Mode.” The software update features more aggressive downshifts, with gear selection occurring during ABS engagement. Nissan claims this update reduces understeer and increases corner exit speeds.
