Nissan Celebrates GT-R with Gold Edition
The first GT-R introduced with gold exterior was this of Usain Bolt. It obviously became very trendy since the brand will even produce it. We are talking about the 2016 Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Gold Edition which comes to praise the heritage of this particular model. It is based on the Premium trim level and its gold characteristics do not end with the exterior paint. But before continuing with them, we must also say that this special color, called "Silica Brass" was used for the R34 Type or the Skyline GT-R M-Spec.
The designers added a special gold-tone VIN plate under the hood and in the vicinity of the engine, as well as a plaque on the center console in the interior. In addition, there is some really good news regarding the powertrain. It is now capable of additional 50 horsepower added to its already generous 550 hp.
This means that the VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 unit now produces a total of 600 hp (441 kW) thanks to additional fine tuning. There are also 24 Nm added to the torque, resulting in the spectacular 656 Nm (484 kW).
At last, we must also mention these premium wheels on which the car runs. Painted in nearly black as a contrast, they have 20-spoke design. The alloys are shod with Dunlop performance run-flat tires that measure 255/40ZRF20 up front and 285/35ZRF20 at the rear.
Only 30 examples of this special edition will be produced and they are all going to the United States.
