Nissan revives the glory of the coveted GT–R with a new edition of the vehicle for its 45th anniversary. Released as a special iteration of the already-spry Premium edition, the Gold ‘Anniversary’ edition features a powerful 550 horsepower engine underneath the hood, delivered courtesy of a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. The bold gold paint job harkens back to 2001′s Skyline GT-R M-Spec, or alternatively, the dreamboat of gearheads worldwide. As if that weren’t enough to stop onlookers in their tracks, this version of the GT-R sports new 20-spoke aluminum alloy wheels, as well as commemorative plaques at the engine and interior console.
While the inventory is still in question, Nissan has confirmed that less than 30 of these beauties will be available stateside. With a base price around $102,000 USD and the rarity already confirmed, it might be best to savor this car with the photo above.
