To be fair, it’s still cheaper than getting the original one but sarcasm aside, this one-of-a-kind replica of the 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z432 is just like any other toy – that is, if you think ‘toys’ are now made from platinum and come with a price tag of $80,000.

Given that Nissan only built 420 of these Z432s from 1969 to 1973, you can understand jeweler Ginza Tanaka’s choice of the Fairlady to commemorate the Japanese toy-car maker’s 40th anniversary seems to be a good choice.

The detailing of the platinum-made Fairlady is incredible and just to emphasize the toy car’s rarity and exclusivity, Tanaka didn’t settle for just any kind of packaging - even the car’s box is made from platinum.

In case you’re interested to have a closer look at this $80,000 toy, it’s going to be on-display at the Hong Kong International Jewelry Show for this whole month of March and will then move to the Osaka Tomica Fair in Japan next month.

I would never spent a thousand bucks for a toy! Heck! I could actually buy a brand new car on $80,000! However, seeing a piece of art like this would be interesting.

I bet this would be a great thing to be collected if you are wealthy! And I wonder if this is the only model that they have? And what are the materials used in here?

This toy is really expensive! I would not spend too much money for a toy.

That is one heck of a toy. Why wouldn’t it be? I mean you can already buy 2 to 3 regular cars with that much money and about one good sporty race car. What in the world will someone do with a 80 grand toy?

a whopping $80,000 for a replica? better auctioned it.

what the hell, $80,000 for just a toy? selling it would be tough for sure, maybe auction will help, but think twice a toy for $80,000 of $1000.00 for the charity?
