GOODWOOD, UK – Nissan factory GT3 racers Lucas Ordóñez and Alex Buncombe headed to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to take the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign up one of the most famous hills in motorsport. Ordóñez and Buncombe piloted the prototype up the 1.86km (1.16 mile) hill on the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex, England.

"The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the ideal setting to showcase the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign, which combines power and artistry to celebrate 50 years of inspiring the dreams of our customers," said Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan's senior vice president of global design. "Just like the prototype itself, Goodwood is a celebration of design, performance, a little indulgence and a lot of love of historic and future automotive creativity. It's the perfect setting to showcase a unique vehicle that will stir the imagination of people to dream even bigger."

The first-ever collaboration between Nissan and Italdesign, the GT-R50 prototype shown at Goodwood could become the blueprint for a limited run of hand-built production vehicles. The 720ps vehicle commemorates the 50th anniversaries of both the GT-R, in 2019, and Italdesign, in 2018.
