Nissan GT-R Gentleman Edition


The Japanese car industry is renowned for its bizarre special editions. We've had the MX-5 Gleneagles, the Toyota Hilux Invincible and the Mitsubishi Colt/Mirage Cyborg to name but three. But clearly Nissan is desperate to take the title for weirdest limited-run model ever, for it has launched the GT-R Gentleman Edition.

Just 10 will be made, and each is destined for France of all places. The Gentleman Edition is based on the Black Edition GT-R but only available in 'Grey Squale' paint (of course), and is mechanically unchanged over the regular GT-R.

A Gentleman Edition can be identified on the inside (ahem) by a titanium plaque with the build number, red leather and a luggage set comprising a sunglasses case and leather bag. The exterior features some discreet badging underneath the wing-mounted GT-R badges (well, as subtle as a 'Gentleman Edition' badge can be...).

The price in France for this very special GT-R is €97,900, or £83,500. Over here, the recently-refreshed MY2013 GT-R starts at £76,610. Question is, are the French man enough for a GT-R Gentleman Edition?

    In all seriousness that red leather doesn't half lift the dull cockpit , I wonder what tan leather would look like ?
    Nice, IMO.

    "'Gentleman's Edition'" eh? eh? I bet thats why its an extra 6 grand for a bag, it's full of "Gentlemen's Editions". Classy stuff, like Escort and Fiesta. and Razzle.

    "personally I'd mud wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock, and a sack of French porn. You're on"
    Never heard of a Razzle before. Was that a US market version of the Cortina or something?
    I think it was a trim level of the Probe. hehe

    I think the Psy-style gentleman is the type who would buy the GT-R Gentleman Edition. hehe I think a Hooligan Edition would have been more appropriate. wink

    I'm waiting for the Jaguar XKR "Cad" Edition.
    That'd be the XJR surely?
