Nissan GT-R asks: Is the purple a bit much?
Black, white, red, or orange; these are all suitable colors for a sports car. Stray from this assortment and the results could be hit or miss. Obviously British automotive journalist and GT-R fan, Davis Yu, has decided to take his chances and turn a perfectly good Gum metallic paint job into Barney.
That’s right, this guy has taken his Nissan GT-R to the folks at Creative FX so they could wrap it up in a purple foil.
Not that it hasn’t been done before. Nissan themselves have even ventured off to the plum palette by allowing their 2010 V Spec GT-R models to carry the color, but we’re not so sure that the GT-R deserves this kind of treatment.
"David Yu approached us to wrap his gun metal GT-R in the iconic midnight purple, which is only available in the spec V version of the latest GT-R. David is very happy with the result of the wrap and says, “most of the people who’ve seen it thought it was a respray!"
We’re glad Mr. Yu is happy with his car, but we would love to know what everyone else thinks about his wine-colored ride. Does the Nissan GT-R look good in purple, or should the foil be unwrapped and tossed away like yesterday’s Christmas paper? Hit us up with your thoughts in the comments section below.
