Gold Chrome Nissan GTR Selling For Over Half A Million Dollars

Yes, this elaborate, highly customized 2014 gold chrome Nissan GT-R is for sale for $550,000. That’s over half a million dollars. It may not sell for that, but that’s what the current owner is asking for it. The intricate carvings were all done by hand. This ain’t no wrapped Nissan GT-R. 

Who would have thought a gold chrome Nissan GT-R could fetch over half-a-million?

The GT-R was originally shown at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon. A chrome predecessor was also shown at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This more recent R35 Nissan GT-R has received a coat of candy gold paint to distinguish it from the silver version. Who would have thought that a 2014 Nissan GT-R could fetch over half-a-million dollars?

Japanese tuning shop Kuhl Racing originally created the extensively modified Nissan. After being shown the last few years it has come up for sale in Dubai. Besides the intricate, time-consuming engravings the GT-R started out with that custom-made body kit. Those flares are hand-built. The engraving took a full year to complete. Before engraving the body was first coated in a chrome-like finish. It was that finish that is engraved into.  

Everything on this Nissan is about exclusivity and over-the-top presentation

Beyond the body details there are black and chrome wheels, the suspension has been lowered, and the custom wing was added. It is held up with custom swan neck uprights. Everything on this Nissan is about exclusivity and over-the-top presentation. That also includes the drivetrain.

The 3.8-liter V6 puts out a whopping 820 hp. It is turbocharged and blows its spent gasses out through a titanium exhaust system. It is as intricate as the engraving on the body. Interior modifications include custom Recaro bucket seats, and splashes of chrome including the center console, air vent shrouds, and door handles. 

For your half-a-mil, you’ll get an almost new GT-R with only 3,700 miles on the ticker. Keep in mind that this is a steal compared to the asking price back in 2016. Then the owners were asking a cool $1 million for the unique GT-R. Sometimes it pays to wait for what you really want.
