Nissan has showcased its prototype GT-R50 by Italdesign at the Beijing Auto Show 2020. The display at the event in China comes after the GT-R50 made appearances at Goodwood Festival, Spa-Francorchamps, Nissan Crossing and elsewhere.

The concept car is based on the latest Nissan GT-R NISMO model and re-interprets it with a European-style sensibility. The vehicle commemorates the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R, in 2019, and Italdesign, in 2018. Only 50 production versions of the car will be built and the deliveries will take place in late 2020.
