Nissan is more than eager to celebrate its performance heritage. We have already showcased Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition that pays tribute to the 240Z Rally Car. However, it wasn’t the only performance vehicle to have entered into the picture. The first Skyline Nissan GT-R did have worldwide impact it should have because it was Japan exclusive only. Nonetheless, GT-R is 50 years old and Nissan is celebrating by launching a special edition. Dubbed as Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition. Just like 370Z, anniversary package for GT-R is just an appearance package for GT-R. Pricing details of the 2020 GT-R and 50th Anniversary Edition has not been revealed.
The exterior of Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition wears two-tone treatment with a bold over-the-top stripe designed to pay homage to classic GT-R racing liveries. It will be available with three color combination that includes white with red stripes, silver with white stripes and one of the most striking we have ever come across and makes a comeback, Bayside Blue. Bright Blue shade became a phenomenon thanks to the R34 Skyline GT-R. The GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is paired with white stripe. Blue accents on the wheel spokes gives it a unique stance and 50th Anniversary script and badging on the exterior enhances the look.
The cabin of Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition gets gray color scheme with a unique steering wheel, shift knob, embossed seats, and Alcantara for the headliner and sun visors. Even though Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is just an appearance package, the Japanese company did some minor changes. With respect to horsepower, it remains 565 for standard and 600 for Track Edition and GT-R Nismo. However, 3.8-liter V6 engine gains new turbocharger which offer better low-end response and a five percent increase in engine efficiency. Carbon fiber components is found on bumpers, fenders, hood, roof, side sill covers, trunk, and the rear spoiler which saves around 10.5kg. Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is available in Premium and Track models too.
