Nissan announced pricing for the 2019 GT-R sports coupe and also said it will produce 50 of the GT-R50 commemorative models designed by Italdesign to celebrate the golden anniversary of this automotive icon.
The more affordable 2019 Nissan GT-R sports coupe starts with the Pure model, which keeps the same $99,990 price tag as last year. Next up, the GT-R Premium, which boasts an 11-speaker Bose audio system, active noise cancellation and enhancement and a titanium exhaust system is priced from $110,540. For hard core enthusiasts, the 2019 GT-R Track Edition, which features suspension enhancements while keeping the same 565-horsepower, 467 lb-ft of torque 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 as the other two models, is priced from $128,540. All models come with a 6-speed dual clutch sequential shift automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The 2019 GT-R Nismo, which is the ultimate performance expression of the coupe, costs $175,540 and boasts 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. This limited-edition trim also features optimized aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain settings. Delivery is $1,695 extra.
GT-R50 a go
Nissan said it will produce a limited run of the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign, which is based on a concept presented last summer at the Goodwood Festival of Speed to mark the 50th anniversary of this legendary performance coupe. The look of the car is unchanged from the prototype and it is expected to retain the 720 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque from the specially crafted 3.8-liter twin turbo V6.
Only 50 of the cars will be built by Italdesign and will cost $1.1 million each before taxes and options. Unlike the prototype, which was finished in a special matte gray finish with gold accents, customers will be able to choose their own color combinations and interior hues and trim packages.
"The reaction from Nissan fans around the world – and potential customers of the GT-R50 – has greatly exceeded our expectations," said Bob Laishley, global sports car program director at Nissan. "These 50 cars, which celebrate 50 years of the GT-R as well as 50 years of Italdesign, will be rolling tributes to Nissan's engineering leadership and rich sports car heritage for a long time to come."
