Nissan’s 50th anniversary GT-R costs over ninety grand

Want your Nissan GT-R in Skyline-alike Bayside Blue? Prepare to cough up

This is the Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition, marking the big half-century of the GT-R badge. It’ll be rare, too, just 50 of them coming to Europe, all of them painted in blue with white stripes.

Not just any old blue, either, but Bayside Blue, a colour anyone who’s ever clapped eyes on an R34-generation Skyline GT-R will know well. It’s the first time its successor has officially been available in the colour, and we’d imagine a good chunk of them might sell for that reason alone.

“A four-coat, double-heat treatment process ensures a vivid blue with striking highlights and deep shadows,” says Nissan. And who are we to argue?

As is the GT-R special edition norm, there are no great chassis changes or power hikes for this one, but as a 2020 model year GT-R, that does mean a 565bhp peak and reduced turbo lag thanks to more responsive turbochargers. There are also sharper reactions when you prod its six-speed paddleshift auto into Race mode and smoother damping.

The price? Um, £92,995. But then of that weeny European allocation, 18 are coming to the UK, so the chances of you enjoying those striking highlights and deep shadows on any GT-R but your own is severely unlikely.
