With the GT-R(X) 2050 concept, Nissan imagines what its supercar might look like three decades from now.

As part of his final year design internship at Nissan’s American styling studio, young South Korean Jaebum Choi imagined what a GT-R could look like in 2050. He designed a vehicle that “wears” like a piece of clothing rather than driving, and is controlled via an interface linking the user’s brain to the onboard computer.
This strange single-seater cross-shaped vehicle is 2.90m long, 1.53m wide and only 0.66m high. The rider, equipped like a Superbike biker, lies on his stomach, head forward, as in the virtual concept cars of McLaren and Chevrolet for Gran Turismo video games.

He sees the outside only through a camera. Nissan made a full-scale model from the work of its apprentice designer. The vehicle was named Nissan GT-R(X) 2050.

An identity preserved

The concept takes up some of the styling elements of the GT-R from the catalog, such as its long straight lines giving it a monolithic look or its round taillights. The shape of the wheels should allow it to swivel 360°. The GT-R(X) 2050 is obviously 100% electric. It has a mobile rear spoiler.

The true next-generation Nissan GT-R is still more than 13 years after the launch of the current model. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait until 2050 to discover it.
