Tradition holds than one doesn’t give gold as an anniversary gift until 50 years have passed. The keepers of the GT-R at Nissan got impatient. To celebrate forty-five years of this furious coupe, Nissan has released the Gold Edition: a standard-issue GT-R covered in lustrous Silica Brass paint. Custom Rays 20-spoke wheels double the spoke-count of the regular car (in this arena, more is always more), and five extra horsepower offset the heavier (we presume) gold-tone VIN plate that commemorates your special purchase. Usain Bolt has a gold GT-R—specially made for him after the London Olympics—and while you can’t buy Bolt’s skill, speed, charm or outsized ego, now you can at least cop his ride.
