...and they're only 990,000 euros each. That'll be well over £2million when the pound falls through the floor after the Brexit No Deal.

That gold nose is disgusting.

as reported by me in the GT-R Yum Yum thread on 12 July

Bob Laishley announced today that they plan to make 50

Only took Top Gear 5 months to catch up!

Something Bob mentioned when we were in Japan was that the design was mostly by Nissan, not Ital. Makes sense when you look at the rear lights, and compare them with the 2020 concept.

I agree though Chubbs, the Gold nose doesnt go with that Blue

It would be a very cool thing to go to the Silverstone Classic in.  And, if you slept in it for the weekend, about the same price as some nearby-ish hotels.

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - You'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though - good.

Oh well off to Dubai they go.... 

 

I am sorry, they are just not worth that sort of cash.  I am no badge snob but you could easily buy a Nismo GTR and with not much effort make it into a 1000bhp.  They should have left that part Gold either Carbon Black or Black - or better still not had that combination as it looks cheap.

 

If you are going to spend that sort of money or had it - I would be Aston all day long.  Well good luck to them something for someone to place in a air regulated store.

 

Nah - not for me.  Which is good as I can't afford it anyway.

Bummer. We were secretly planning to club together to get you one for Christmas, Les. Oh well, dare say you'll like the Silicone Nismo Keyring Protector.

Often limited edition super cars make money.  I wonder if this will be the same, or if the initial asking price is just too much.

I dont think this proposal will go ahead or certainly never get to the 50 limit. And as you say, buyers wont be drivers in our sense of the word. Shame.

My money is on most - if not all - of them already being sold, or at least having had deposits put down on them.

Now you tell us. :rolleyes: :lol:

The language used by or on behalf of Nissan in every article that I have read over the last few days has been very bullish though. And a lot can happen in the world of very expensive limited edition cars in a couple of months.

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - You'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though - good.

It has a page (p. 28) devoted to it in this month's Evo magazine (the Car Of The Year issue).

 

As an aside, on page 135 there's also a very nice picture of a yellow 260Z.  "How nice?" you might ask.  I'd reply, "get the cold shower ready". :thumbs:
