Dubai showcases US$1 million gold-plated car

Gold Car, Dubai

A gold-plated car worth US$1 million has been unveiled in Dubai.

The Nissan R3 GT-R, nicknamed ‘Godzilla', was revealed at the Automechanika automotive parts exhibition at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) last week.

Showcased by Kuhl Racing, a Japanese sports car firm that specialises in customisation, the car is covered with a gold paint sheen, applied and engraved by Japanese body-shop artist Takahiko Izawa.

The car, which features a 3.8-litre V6 twin turbo engine with 545 horsepower and a six-speed dual clutch transmission, wowed the car-crazy crowd attending this popular Dubai event.

Automechanika Dubai is the largest trade exhibition of its kind in the MENA region, showcasing the latest automotive technologies.

Dubai has earned a reputation for being home to some of the most exotic autos anywhere in the world.

The unveiling of Godzilla follows the recent Middle East debut of Ferrari’s new four-seater, the GTC4 Lusso.

The four-wheel steering, all-wheel drive supercar is a first in the history of the Italian carmaker and was inspired by the 1970 Ferrari 365GTC4.

Boasting a V12 engine with a top speed of 335km/h, the car can accelerate from 0-100 km in just 3.4 seconds.

Ferrari says the GTC4 Lusso is designed to be an “every day” luxury sports car.
