Very interesting collaboration here where ItalDesign was tasked with a re-skin a Nissan GT-R fully, inside and out, as a celebration of the car’s 50-year legacy.
More than a reskin, even.
Possible hints at next-gen model expected for the 2020 model year? Yes of course. But mostly this exercise just celebrates the GT-R’s essence and moves the vehicle noticeably upmarket. Even as a $100k car the GT-R does lack the class and panache of true supercars, in some respects, with the current model’s workmanlike exterior and interior.
How to go high-fashion without dulling the GT-R’s ace in the hole — its insane speed?
Send one to Italy for GG’s crew to vamp up!
The gorgeous results speak for themselves.
