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.

A GT-R for grown-ups? Nissan France hopes so

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?

    April 1st just called and asked if it can have its joke back.

    I hoped they would have gone a lot bigger with that, rather than just trim and luggage! A seriously opulent interior in a GT-R would be awesome..

    So Nissan has been playing around with the car configurator, and then badging the result as a limited edition. reminds me of what Porsche were doing with the 997 before they released the 991..
