Limited to 100 units globally, the Nissan GT-R Midnight Opal Special Edition’s paint is applied by hand and alters in colour depending on light and viewing angle.
Joined by a carbonfibre rear spoiler, a gold build plate and forged aluminium wheels featuring a hyper-titanium coating, the limited model leaves the standard car’s 404kW/628Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant untouched.
An identical Midnight purple shade has been seen on the GT-R before, with both the R33 and R34 Skyline GT-Rs featuring the hue in past years.
On sale in the US from September – when 50 cars will be up for grabs – the Midnight Opal Special Edition commands a US$6000 ($6500) premium over the standard 2014 GT-R.
While Nissan Australia has no plans to introduce the model locally, the Nissan GT-R Black Edition went on sale last month priced at $182,500 before on-road costs, an $11,700 premium over the standard model.
