If you thought the pure platinum Tomica Nissan Fairlady Z432 that Kev posted was a bit too outrageous at $80,000, perhaps you will find these more reasonable. Once again, the S20 powered S30 Z forms the basis for an extremely limited edition Tomica celebrating the toy car company’s 40th anniversary. This time, they are accompanied by the Nissan 370Z and are brushed with traditional Japanese lacquer techniques. The process involves real gold dust and is carried out in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture, a region known for its lacquer artisans. The cost is a mere ¥80,000 or approximately US$850, but once again these priceless Pocket Cars are not for sale. You can see Tomica’s 40 Years interactive website here.
