I took a dump this morning in a bucket of gold paint. 5 billion dollars, any takers?
Sam Riccardi Feb 29, 2012
Why would you pay almost $200,000 more just for gold trim?
Description: What is standard, however, in the pricy GT-R is a dealer-installed gold-plated front grille, side panels and distinct "VVIP" badging. An exclusive Bose sound system ensures you can bump some...

Does the the Arab peninsula really have so much money that NISSAN can get away with charging over $200K for a GT-R?!?
Nick Benz Mar 01, 2012
Its from goldmember. If youdk then gtfo
Raymond Reynoso Mar 01, 2012
Saeed sounds like a leprechaun
Kapilan Kailayanathan Feb 29, 2012
Monstrous car... but a gold grill seems pointless. The GTR is sports car, not a luxury car.
Keiler Countryman Feb 29, 2012
This is one of my favorite cars and one of the reasons is because of its price, it is a lot of car for a pretty some price for what it is. But this is ridiculous, about 150k more than the regular price for some stupid gold.
Saeed Bin Mohammed Feb 29, 2012
@Ryu ... We love gold!
Alexander Gomez Feb 29, 2012
Why not just buy 1 in the U.S and have it fly first class? Lol!
Buddy Robinson Feb 29, 2012
You should have seen the crazy crap that we did to our cars in out economic explosions.
Ryu Tsuchiya Feb 29, 2012
Worthless money, worthless life, douchbag country
Das Stig Feb 29, 2012
It would probably be cheaper to buy a gtr and put gold on it yourself or just don't be stupid and don't put gold in it.
Kenneth Williams Feb 29, 2012
Bose? Hmmm. Give me a rainbow audio system for that much
Dickson Lui Mar 02, 2012
The New GTR is one of those Jap rides you need little mods with.
Matthew Basmadjian Mar 02, 2012
I like it, it wasn't overdone.
Domi Bsaibes Mar 02, 2012
In other ways, they'd buy this one instead of buying a stock one
Matthew Reindorp Mar 01, 2012
@joseph definatly agreed! Done some small performance mods but not much.
Raymond Reynoso Mar 01, 2012
Taste over there is strictly showing off, they don't buy things that they like they buy things to show other people how much they spend on it.
Sebastian Grey Mar 01, 2012
"Taste" over there is completely different from "Taste" over here.
Joseph Myers Mar 01, 2012
I'll just stick to my stock one, this is one of the ugliest color combos since chrome paint -.-
Raymond Reynoso Mar 01, 2012
Wow 5 really?!? That's amazing! I'm sure any American millionaire (130 million people) can buy this crap but wouldn't because it's gaudy and arrogant. Apparently these people don't have any taste.
Domi Bsaibes Mar 01, 2012
People in the middle east can buy 5 like this, its price doesn't matter
JGL Scuderia Mar 01, 2012
a gtr, just hand it over when youve taken all the gold off and then make it black. then i would really like it.
Kyle Hardisty Feb 29, 2012
too much money for that GTR. a stock GTR I would be happy to spend 80k on a stock one. Great car!! But this is crazy $$
rockstarTc Feb 29, 2012
It looks really good with the gold trim but its definitely not worth that much money. I would rather use that money for performance.
Brady Fereday Feb 29, 2012
Agreed ford fan but people will pay for it that's why... like nothing is worth a 100k appearance upgrade -_-
Vince DeMasi Feb 29, 2012
Whats up with middle easterns and gold all over their cars but this is actually done well
Dickson Lui Mar 02, 2012
This car would look good in red also.
Brady Fereday Feb 29, 2012
It looks so clean though <3 :)
Dickson Lui Mar 02, 2012
Haha it would be nice to have a diamond grill with the GTR sign in platinum gold .
Matthew Reindorp Mar 01, 2012
Orrr you could just keep the interior and exterior the same take an R35 to AMS and for 69,000 they'll give you the alpha 12 package... 1500hp+?? Yes please :D
Maury L. Meredith Mar 01, 2012
buy you a regular priced Godzilla remap the ECU, goto an after market shop put the leather couches in, gold bling, mufflers, and new brakes. you only paid 130,000 ok 140,000 tops. Folks in da middle east have cash to burn.
Kyle Hardisty Feb 29, 2012
im likin the bead lights in the front
Bright Spark Feb 29, 2012
Why do this to Nissan throw as much as you want at it, it's still a Nissan
Trent Fiala Mar 12, 2012
Yeah I know you said that dipshit! I'm not stupid
Trent Fiala Mar 04, 2012
Not risen... Riden* eff autocorrect!! It blows
Trent Fiala Mar 04, 2012
@Ford fan Stupid Porsche boxter!? Haha Yeah I agree though they are stupid!
Trent Fiala Mar 04, 2012
Performance crap to that one though... But his other ones that were all stock didn't feel at all like a "dog" at 100 Haha Ride in one or drive one, you'll know then
Trent Fiala Mar 04, 2012
@quadrophonie actually that's where your wrong, my dads buddy has had over 8 different vipers and at 100 it doesn't feel like a dog at all! I have risen with him, and his one he would top it out at 212mph on I-95 going... He did a little bit of some.
Trent Fiala Mar 04, 2012
My car will hit 110 in 3rd... It has a shiftable automatic tranny and I can't go into 4th when I do it cause it hits the dam speed limiter at 106, and yes it hits 110 cause the momentum brings it up to 110 from 106 when the stupid speed limiter hits
Trent Fiala Mar 04, 2012
Yeah I know I haven't but I was just predicting that probably what it feels like, just guessing from the specs and all the other info on it! 5th hear at 100? Duh obviously you'd downshift for that but you could maybe cruise at that...
quadrophine Mar 02, 2012
oooooh... yeah, that makes more sense
Broderick King Mar 02, 2012
So you have a super charged range rover and a 370Z?
quadrophine Mar 02, 2012
in fifth at 100 mph the viper would be a dog too. I'm not entirely familiar with the gearing, but 4th in my car will take me to about 115
quadrophine Mar 02, 2012
if your in fifth at 100 miles an hour at wot you need to learn to downshift my friend.
Trent Fiala Mar 02, 2012
By close I'm meaning about 20ish mph away till the acceleration really starts slowing down
Trent Fiala Mar 02, 2012
Hard up until it gets a bit closer to that 193ish number! So shut up dude Hahah
Trent Fiala Mar 02, 2012
But still just sayin that there is no way in hell the GTR would feel like slow as shit after it hits 100 cause first off it has 545hp and 463tq and I'm talking about the 2013 one! And a top speed of 193... Obviously it's going to be pulling pretty...
Trent Fiala Mar 02, 2012
@Ford fan quit hatting on and bitching about the GTR We don't want to hear your ignorance and dumb shit! Have fun with your rwd 370z That is nowhere near as fast as that Nissan Gtr.. Or even as fun to drive! Haha Still fun though but not like the GTR
rockstarTc Mar 01, 2012
I didnt say it was the most fun car to drive I just said it was fun. Im not saying it the most fun car to drive, honestly dude i dont know what you have against the GTR to bitch about them and saying false facts about them, you just sound stupid. Maybe you tried to buy one but Nissan wouldnt let you have one since your such a annoying prick, and now you are bitter toward them. NAIL ON THE HEAD!!!
rockstarTc Mar 01, 2012
@ford i have drove one and it was fun as hell so i have no clue what your talking about
Tyler Richey Mar 01, 2012
My Boxer would ruin those seats in 10 minutes.
JGL Scuderia Mar 01, 2012
the gtr is more fun to drive on a track than most cars on sale today. its so sharp and have tons of grip. and it can have all that with a small pricetag. remove the gold and make the seats red or black.
quadrophine Feb 29, 2012
the point is, a gtr or an xj220 or a gtr or a .911 turbo. a gtr or a dodge viper... id go for a supra an Elise or even a corvette. simply because they'd be more fun to drive. now for a dd... for a comfortable man over the age of 50 its easy to drive relatively quick, if your not that guy its useless.
quadrophine Feb 29, 2012
I'm not saying its not a brilliant car, actually its pretty amazing considering how well it throws its weight around... it doesn't even feel that heavy, but knowing that it is sours the experience. its fast as Hell, but to say its more reliable is false... any purpose built car will experience.stress related failure and when pushed to the limits isn't a champion of reliability.
Trent Fiala Feb 29, 2012
That interior looks pretty cool! Sorry but I like all the gold on it, looks pretty sweet Just my opinion though
Trent Fiala Feb 29, 2012
It so much better then a ton of cars out there, all stock may not be so great but there is so much you can do to it and make it badass! Shut up about it already
Trent Fiala Feb 29, 2012
Okay shut up about how "bad" the power and on the car is cause nobody cares, it's not really "bad" at all! If you don't like the car then dont look at the articles about it! It's that easy! You could just upgrade and do a ton of crap to it and make..
Broderick King Feb 29, 2012
Yes I agree there should be a more specific article
quadrophine Feb 29, 2012
we need a good what why and how article about the way engines work, and what a powerband really is... hp and torque... so we can hate on the car, for the right reasons.
No Pistons Feb 29, 2012
Haha ok what constitutes as "blows"? And please provide evidence/links. I doubt you have even looked at a Dyno let alone the SAE documents for the GTR. Oh and do remember your definition has to be objective and unarguable for it to be valid
Pablo Herasme Feb 29, 2012
This guy cannot stop talking about the powerband
Broderick King Feb 29, 2012
Ford this is the Internet no one is gonna believe anything about your personal life so don't try and convince people you've driven the car, it's a lost cause
Brandon Contreras Feb 29, 2012
Lol the interior is too fancy for this car...
No Pistons Feb 29, 2012
And I've tracked one, we have already gone over this. What factual evidence does you driving one prove? You have nothing but an opinion formed which is fine but my point is dont pass said opinion as fact.
rockstarTc Feb 29, 2012
yeah i would count this as a supercar since it can perform like one. @ford all your doing is talking out of your ass, nothing your saying it true. Dude you really need to get over yourself and accept your wrong.
Carl Andrew Muniz Tirella Feb 29, 2012
I feel like they put too much effort into the engine and not enough for the craftsmanship of the actual cars, it can be fast and ugly as hell at the same time guys..
Broderick King Feb 29, 2012
Nothing more annoying than a devils advocate
No Pistons Feb 29, 2012
Love how those that are hating only have subjective material or what they have heard from a friend, no factual evidence at all of why it's a horrible car. You dont like it I respect that but don't try to pass your opinion as fact.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 29, 2012
lol they should bring back the R3 series to kick there GT-R's own asss and every one elses R390----> R400
Zaire Wilkins Feb 29, 2012
the R30 & R31 exsisted to but i think 30 was a 4-door and ugly
quadrophine Feb 29, 2012
so you by a Ferrari and the tuning regiment is pretty heavy, I think every 3000 miles. but the thing for the most part stays together... plus Ferrari says baller, gtr says fail. who cares if its quick, if it still looks and sounds like crap from a to b... gtr hater for life peace
Mark Suvorov Feb 29, 2012
And it was everytime, not like smbd thinking like gt r came from know nowhere in 2007 and beat some supercars R32 r33 and r34 were very quick cars at their time too and were sports cars R34's time at nordschlife is less than 8 min and its superfast
quadrophine Feb 29, 2012
Nissan or not, and I'm a fan of the brand... but my tuner has seen more problems with gtrs than any other ricer out there. wihin 30000 miles, injectors are shot plugs fouled boost leaks overheating issues. put a few mods on, and they blow headgaskets left and right. they can't handle much more than stock boost without headstuds and port and polish work.
quadrophine Feb 29, 2012
I can't believe they actually made this car worse!!!
Mark Suvorov Feb 29, 2012
Guys Gtr is sports car and it is the end. Super car is not quick and fast but it looks different and the name is loud Sportsmen is gt-r
Devin Babyn Feb 29, 2012
Why do people think its a bad thing that it's made by Nissan? They have a long history of sports cars that were exceptional cars. Better then that they're loved by car enthusiasts and tunners
No Pistons Feb 29, 2012
@Fordfan You can continue hating all you want The GTR is going to continue kicking many cars asses winning races and awards at half the price. Say what you want, facts and numbers don't lie. One day you will get over yourself :)
Matthew Johnson Feb 29, 2012
Oh, not to mention the ridiculous pricing of the car/ parts for said super cars. I want to know how you define engineering. If you talking aesthetics ill give you that but the GTR is nothing short of impressive in its engineering and performance.
Matthew Johnson Feb 29, 2012
Has anyone in here actually talked with someone who works on "super cars"? The amazing engineering is extremely unreliable. Up until like 5 years ago there was no real reliability. Constant maintenance, constant in and out of the shop.
Brandon Whybrew Feb 29, 2012
technically this is a ricer car also. its an amazing car but when it comes down to it its still a Nissan. the brand name kills this car from being a supercar.
Michael Douglas Feb 29, 2012
Supercars are strictly amazing engineering. Yeah your right about that when it comes to the gtr. It has 500+hp stock and works most stock 600hp + cars that cost double on all types of track be it 1/4 or the nurburgring. Ricer boy, eclipse what a joke
Das Stig Feb 29, 2012
That was sarcasm, but 0-60in 2.8 and a top speed just below 200 and your saying its not a super car?
Das Stig Feb 29, 2012
Ya, the mustang is a lot more exclusive and a lot faster. Thats why im a ford guy. Wait a minute!
Matt Piccolo Feb 29, 2012
Nother reason to love the gtr
Jon Dustin House Feb 29, 2012
This interior def works for the middle east type.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 29, 2012
i love the interior just hate the shape of the nav and air vents needs to be sharper
williamdllr Feb 29, 2012
Every super car is well engineered and tuned. Hence why they're super cars. Your ignorance astonishes me.
Broderick King Feb 29, 2012
Yeah um no it doesn't, labeling it something isn't gonna change the car. What you call it doesn't matter, it's what it can do is what matters. Also good for you that you can do that but i really don't care, I only car about the car..
Shawn Sullivan Feb 29, 2012
This interior is shat. If you like troll hair headliner and dingo balls! This looks amazing! Classy
Pablo Herasme Feb 29, 2012
I'm waiting for the comment saying its a shitty interior.
Broderick King Feb 29, 2012
I have always seen it labeled as either a sports car or a super car. I can see where you can call it a tuner, but what you label the car doesn't matter
Carlton Salmon Feb 29, 2012
I do like the interior but with it being white it's wholly impractical. The carpets will be ruined driving it home from the dealership lol!
Elias Harb Feb 29, 2012
Guys chill, anyway, smart move from nissan coz those middle easterns WILL pay up..even though its not worth that kind of money. Awesome car nonetheless!
Michael Douglas Feb 29, 2012
Sorry i forgot to comment on the gtr. Thats just badass, but i agree with everyone a little to confy for what the gtr is supposed to be
Michael Douglas Feb 29, 2012
Ford fan seriously, a supercharged range rover. You are such a tool. First an eclipse then a sc rr lol. And your here talking about how the gtr is not a supercar. Drive an grand cherokee srt8 then start to talk. Or at least by an american car,
Brady Fereday Feb 29, 2012
That interior is stunning :)
Steven Nevets Feb 29, 2012
I'm still confused, how is this anything but a sports car? It's not a sedan, wagon, van or truck. It's clearly a sports car.
Michael Gallagher Feb 29, 2012
Very tastefully done. Big fan. Well I always have been
Steven Whowhat Feb 29, 2012
ppl will always hate. but give them the money and they'll never look back . Im sure ford fan will stick to fords no matter what though . god bless patriots!
Jon Wheel Feb 29, 2012
Oh get out of your Ford and recognize this car as one of the best cars on the market. It's one of the most innovative sports cars of our time.
Alex Sharp Feb 29, 2012
That looks really nice.
Greg Lewis Feb 29, 2012
Ain't gonna lie, i like it
Steven Nevets Feb 29, 2012
Then what would you call it?
Johnny Francis Feb 29, 2012
Wow. That's really nice
Domi Bsaibes Feb 29, 2012
Such leather seats don't go along with such a sporty car! Clever marketing though
