900hp Nissan GT-R with intricate hand engraving up for sale

It's not everyday you get 60% off a million dollar car

The Nissan GT-R has always been an understatement in the performance world and most owners tend to keep it that way. However, some owners want to make a statement and opt for a Liberty Walk makeover, or in this case, Kuhl Racing's bodykit. A chrome version of this kit was first unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Show and it most certainly stood out amongst the crowd. However, a mere bodykit was not extravagant enough for one individual so they took it a few steps further.

Whilst the final result may not appeal to many, there is no denying that the craftsmanship is next level. For instance, it took artists almost a year to do the engraving alone. We also have to discuss how radical this bodykit is, especially from the rear. With three three mufflers, an obnoxious titanium exhaust system and flared fenders, this GT-R is almost impossible to miss... and maybe because it's also golden chrome.

According to the ad, the engine has been tuned to produce between 800-900hp. Performance figures are unknown but I doubt the buyer will be taking this lowrider to the track anytime soon. Note that this isn't the first time we've seen this golden GT-R as it debuted at the Abu Dhabi International Motor Show in 2016 (it had different rims back then).

The vehicle was priced at $1m USD five years ago but now is available for 'just' $435,000 (1.6m AED) at Auto Deals in Dubai. I can confirm that this vehicle is as striking in the flesh as it is in the photos as I saw it behind the dealership window during early 2020. I do not believe it was at Auto Deals back then though and this is not the first time this gold GT-R has been listed on Dubai's largest classifieds site, Dubizzle.

  • Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done..

    Reminds me of my grandmother's Fruit bowl, but bigger, and even more ugly, and even less functional.

    I'm not surprised about the depreciation.

    • A million dollars for a GT-R is pretty steep to begin with! This level of detail might make more sense on some one-off exotic.

    • Not my cup of tea either, but people can and whatever they like to their property. I think it's cool that it exists. A lot of artistry and hours gone into it!

  • For this money I would rather spend it on a classic GT-R and restomod it.

    • Why? I can appreciate the artwork, but on a car!!

      No, it doesn’t work.

      It’s, quite frankly, bloody horrible

    • Of course there's no way I would do this to any car, what I mean is I would rather use the same amount of money($435K USD) to buy a classic GT-R and (tastefully) restomod it.

  • Kitschy chintzy trinket. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • These patterns and engravings are beautiful BUT NOT on a GTR.

    And surprisingly it's not made by Mansory. Maybe GTR is a peasant car for Mansory.

    • Maybe more appropriate in a wealthy arab mans lobby to his home instead of on a car.

    • Definitely a bold choice to put engraving on the outside of the car rather than the inside. Would make more sense to add the elegant patterns on the wood of a Rolls-Royce.

  • I think it looks cool, not my cup of tea, but I get it.
