Nissan Launches $1M Gold-Plated Car
Anyone who has ever wanted to live the life of luxury will love Nissan’s latest offering – a gold-plated supercar worth a cool $1 million.
The R35 GT-R, with its 3.8-litre V6 twin turbo 545 hp engine, has been launched to appeal to billionaires all over the world, the Sun revealed.
To add some bling to the incredibly powerful vehicle, Japanese designers used gold-plating services to cover it in a layer of 24-carat gold spray.
Kuhl Racing and Artis are behind the extravagant car, and Kuhl Racing’s Shigeo Fukuchi was quoted by the news provider as saying: “The gold painting was sprayed on to the body kit which had been custom designed with Far East style patterns over several complicated steps.”
The owners plan to display the supercar at the SEMA show, being held in Las Vegas next month, marketing it with a price tag of $1 million (£819,675) due to its bespoke design and incredible power.
Unveiled in Dubai, the supercar was intended to capture the interest of incredibly wealthy car owners in the Middle East, who are famed for their love of expensive, flashy vehicles.
Indeed, every summer, they transform the streets of London with their automobiles, bringing their luxurious supercars to the capital while they escape the heat of the summer months.
One such billionaire who showed off his fleet of vehicles this summer was Qatari Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad al Thani, who had his Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1, Ferrari F12TDF, Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari Le Ferrari shipped over for the season, the Daily Mail reported.
