This gold-plated Nissan GT-R Godzilla is one of a kind.

It took over 2,000 hours of work, and it shows.

The gold-plated Nissan GT-R was built by Kuhl Japan for the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Each body panel was replaced with a fiber glass equivalent, which was then gold plated, and hand engraved.

Kuhl didn’t just make it glittering and mad, they also did something with the engine.

The twin-turbo V6 that powers it was modified and it now delivers over 800 horsepower.

And wait, because this gold Godzilla actually has a ‘sister’ – a silver-plated Godzilla.

This is a show pony so it’s not really for sale.

But if you wanted to buy it, you’d be looking at a seven-figure price tag as it cost $1 million to build.

We shouldn’t be surprised, though.

The GT-R is the latest incarnation of the Nissan Skyline, and this car lends itself particularly well to tuners.

The Skyline nameplate has been used for different models through the years but the Skyline as we know it, i.e., the sports car, was first launched in 1969.

Six generations later, including the current-gen GT-R, Nissan’s range-topping sports car is still coveted – and still loved by fans.

And still regularly customized by tuners.

This is partly because the Skyline / GT-R owes some of its success to the Need for Speed video game franchise and of course the Fast and Furious franchise.

This, after all, is the car that Paul Walker immortalized when he drove one in Fast and Furious 4.
