Nissan unveils its beast in golden armor, the 45th Anniversary Gold Edition 2016 GT-R

Legend says that there use to live a beast, beneath the depths of the ocean that would raise its head above the waves and terrorize the world. While the rest of the world imagines this beast has met its end, we know better. The Godzilla is still around and will never rest until it has managed to scorch every asphalted surface that lines the earth. Clad in gold and ready to intimidate the world, the 45th Anniversary Gold Edition of the 2016 GT-R is more than just a revamped sports car. Nissan GT-R enthusiasts will agree with the fact that this car will never get old, no matter how many times the Japanese manufacturer decides to launch special one-offs.
