Nissan unveils a McDonald's edition GT-R

I bet this is something you didn't think you'd see today.

Nissan and McDonald's are not two companies you would think to put together, but they have joined forces to create a very gold-looking GT-R.

Alongside the release of the all-new 2022 GT-R Nismo Special edition, Nissan Japan also revealed a new McDonald's edition. It isn't actually a production car, but more a promotional gig.

This comes about as Nissan and McDonald's have released a new Happy Meal set which includes the Suzuki Jimny, Toyota 86, Mitsubishi Delica, and a grey model of the GT-R Nismo Special Edition. It is one of the stranger collaborations we have seen, but if it works, then fair play.

The car itself is actually part of an online competition hosted by McDonald's in Japan. Two families with up to three eligible drivers each will be invited to Nissan's Grandrive test track in Kanagawa where they will get to have a go in it.

Following that, they will get a photo with the car and one of the Happy Set gold McDT'Rs. Winners too young to drive will get a few gifts as well as a commemorative gold gift card worth ¥1,000.

  • Probably the weirdest collaboration ever.

    This will be McDonald’s going to the manufacturer to license millions of toys for happy meals.

    Whoever at McDonalds dreamt this up is quite possible a GTR fan and using company money as part of marketing spend to get a fast car on the books and then will probably write off the cost of the car, the winner is whoever gets the car as you take of the McDonalds livery off (probably wrapped) and they have a very fast car for free.

    Cynical, I know I am!!!

  • Sad. The Nissan GTR is a legendary car that has prestige. McDonald's is trash, garbage food.

  • Everyone: The R35 GTR is a living legend.

    Nissan: I'm about to ruin this car's entire legacy.

    • Legacy is pointless. If a sticker or a commercial move is "ruining" a car in your opinion, then the issue isn't the car, it's you.

      A R35 is a R35. Even with shitty stickers.

    • Haha! Fighting words, Adrien.

      Though I'd argue that legacy isn't "pointless". Just ask OJ Simpson.

      I can't imagine Bugatti sullying their name by teaming up with a fast food chain.

  • I think Nissan missed the April fools deadline. Also does this come in the Adult Happy Meal?
