While they may have shown what the road-going version of the GT-R50 would look like, Nissan is not about to give up on the “old” GT-R just yet.

That’s cause they’ve just revealed a special edition model, specifically for the Japanese market, in commemoration of the company’s partnership with tennis Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka.

Based on the GT-R Premium variant, Nissan has earmarked only 50 units for production with very specific trims. They will be offered in three body colours namely Midnight Opal, Brilliant White Pearl and Meteor Flake Black Pearl.

The special edition model pays tribute to Naomi Osaka as the first Japanese tennis player to win a women’s singles Grand Slam championship in September. Naomi also helped match the colour schemes for this limited-production model.

One of the main highlights of the exterior is the LED brake lights mounted on the dry carbon rear spoiler and a golden model-number plaque in the engine bay.

Recently, Nissan also showed its persistence to preserve the older GT-Rs by offering official parts for the R33 and R34 Skyline GT-R through its NISMO Heritage programme.
