Watch the Nissan GT-R50 as it takes its first spin around the famed Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign took a high-speed spin around the famed Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.
The Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign made its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, England, in July and arrived in Belgium to open the Spa 24 Hours event with a parade lap.
The first-ever collaboration between Nissan and Italdesign, the GT-R50 prototype shown at Goodwood could become the blueprint for an extremely limited run of hand-built production vehicles. The vehicle was designed to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R (in 2019) and Italdesign (in 2018).
