A dazzling gold-plated car worth $1 million was the centre of attraction on Day 2 of Automechanika Dubai 2016, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The gold-plated customized Nissan R35 GT-R is being showcased by ace tuners and customizers of sports cars, Kuhl Racing. Named the Godzilla, the car is a result of a cooperate endeavour between Artis, Kuhl Racing and master engraver Takahiko Izawa. The special gold paint sheen covers a 3.8 litre V6 twin turbo 545 hp engine, souped up with additional horsepower and additional torque. The car features enhanced aerodynamic features, a reinforced body and precision handling.

The car's engine is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission, which can be driver selected to shift at race car-like speeds. The sequential-shifting transaxle features separate wet clutches for the odd (1,3,5) and even (2,4,6) gears and pre-selects the next highest and next lowest gear for quick shifts. High performance differential oil, used in GT-R motorsports competition, is standard. For 2016, the Nissan GT-R defends its position as one of the most striking supercars in the market today - with the addition of new 20-spoke wheels.

The technology used for the paint by Artis Izawa Custom paint Works is Takumi Technology and the result is an engaging and tangible sensation of luxury through a distinctive feat of ingenious engineering. The car's paint job is a combination of premium design and a unique convergence of craftsmanship and innovation that results in a one-of-a-kind matte aesthetic with a subtly textured finish, imbued with notable durability and cleaning attributes.
