Its not real chrome, its a special paint they use to do it. It was bound to happen with the GTR, Who knows, it could even be a vinyl wrap. So many people doing this Vinyl wrap now a days you never know what it is.

That said, I'd certainly love to drive one - but there are many, many cars I'd rather have for the same (or even less) money (like my 335 for example).
+1000000000 on the looks part its really cheap inside and all computerized almost ahha

I don't really care, it's only vinyl. It's true colors are hidden underneath, but sunlight will be a bitch.

Skyline != R35 GTR

The GTR is now standalone, with the Skyline model line-up carried forward with the G series cars. G37, etc.

On the Chrome, not a fan.

It's just vinyl or the Alucorp chrome paint (which is what that BMW was). there are a LOT of cars out there done this way. Doesn't affect performance in any negative way, so it can't be called "ruined." Just different.

(that one was actually the bare aluminum skin that was polished)







It's certainly striking in person.
