Nissan Unveils Midnight Opal Special Edition GT-R

Only 50 units bound for the US

Nissan has announced the official US pricing for the 2014 GT-R Special Edition. The vehicle features a unique Midnight Opal exterior color and highly limited production. Only 100 units will be produced worldwide.

In addition to the exclusive Midnight Opal color, the GT-R Special Edition will feature a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler and forged aluminum wheels with hyper-titanium coating. All 100 units will be fitted with a special number plate in the engine compartment to show what number it is out of 100.

The special paint color is applied by hand and promises the exterior finish typically seen only in exotic supercars. The paint will change colors depending on viewing angle and lighting. Pricing for the GT-R Special Edition is $105,590. That's an additional $6000 over the Premium model. Only 50 units will come to the US starting this fall.

The automaker’s opening salvo is this swoopy Q80 Inspiration concept, which is making its world debut at the 2014 Paris auto show.

Volkswagen charges up new Passat GTE for the trip to Paris

Sep 29 2014 10:35am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Wagon, Europe, Paris Motor Show, Volkswagen, Electric We all know that the letters GT stand for Gran Turismo, but tacking on another letter can evoke a different meaning altogether. GTO for Ferraris (or Pontiacs), GT-R for Nissan supercars, GTA for high-performance Alfa Romeos (or car-theft video games, or metropolitan Toronto)... The list goes on and on, but few are as familiar with the idea as Volkswagen, whi ...

Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB

Sep 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

You have to give it to the Scion xB. I can’t think of another car deserving to be euthanized more than the xB. It’s lived past its life, so much so that its quirky competitors — the Nissan Cube and the Honda Element — have all gone the wayside. Yet the xB remains and somehow, it’s even making yearly pilgrimages to the SEMA Auto Show.This year, the xB rides into the biggest aftermarket auto show in the world, heavily customized with the vibe of the 70s, mixed with splashes of rock ’n’ roll, ...
