Nissan is ringing in the 50th birthday of the GT-R with a special 50th Anniversary Edition. Offered in three variations, the celebratory model serves to commemorate the GT-R’s rich heritage.

In most markets, the GT-R will be available in GT-R Premium, GT-R Track Edition, and GT-R NISMO, while select regions can also take advantage of Pure, Prestige, and Black models. The vehicle’s three heritage-era paint jobs point to the GT-R’s liveries from the Japan GP series, presented in Bayside (Wangan) Blue with white racing stripes, Pearl White with red stripes, and Super Silver with white stripes.

The interior of the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is done up in a commemorative gray scheme, inspired by the night sky, while other special design elements include a unique steering wheel and shift knob trim, embossed seats, an Alcantara headliner with new stitching, and Alcantara-wrapped sun visors.

Nissan incorporated new turbochargers into the GT-R 565-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine to increase the engine’s low rpm response, provide tighter clearances, and a five percent increase in efficiency. Furthermore, the car’s six-speed dual-clutch transmission features a refined “R mode” designed for both road and track.

The dash of the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is wrapped in a seamless piece of Nappa leather. Here, you will find integrated navigation and audio controls and an eight-inch capacitive touch-panel monitor.

For now, Nissan has yet to announce release details for the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition, which will presumably be in high demand.

Not NYC, not LA.
