Launched late last year, the Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Gold Edition helps celebrate the Japanese sport’s cars history. Now fast forward to 2015 and it has been confirmed that a mere 30 examples of the GT-R 45th Anniversary will be offered in the United States.
In the U.S, the Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Gold Edition will be priced at $102,770. By comparison, the 2016 GT-R Premium will start at $101,770 excluding the obligatory $1595 destination and handling charge. Elsewhere, the GT-R Black Edition has been priced from $111,510 plus $1595 while the range-topping GT-R Nismo will set customers back $149,990 and the additional $1595.
As a reminder, the Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Edition is painted in a shade dubbed Silica Brass. This colour is identical to the one used on the 2001 Nissan Skyline GT-R M-Spec. Additionally, the GT-R 45th Anniversary Edition is available solely with the Premium Edition level of trim and comes standard with a commemorative emblem in the interior. Additionally, an exclusive model plate number is found in the engine compartment.
Beneath the skin, the 2015 Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Edition remains mechanically identical to the other GT-R variants (except the Nismo of course). That means its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivers a total of 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
