Kudos to Infiniti. With seemingly every special edition model being blinged-up and chrome frosted inside and out, you'd figure something called the Millionaire Edition would be the most ostentatious thing on four wheels. But Nissan's luxury division has taken an entirely more understated approach with the 2010 Infiniti FX Millionaire Edition.

Instead of chrome or gold plating, the FX Millionaire gets dark graphite trim on the exterior, including the grille, air dam, 21-inch wheels and roof rails – as well as the window surrounds, from the look of it – complementing the Obsidian Black or White Moonlight paint schemes. Inside, it's all Alcantara micro-suede with brown stitching offset by carbon fiber, plus all the advanced features from the catalog, including sat-nav, Infiniti's excellent Around View Monitor system and Bose audio.

The package is available on either the FX37 or FX50, but only in Europe, with no more than 100 examples to be built. Equipped with the 390-horsepower, 5.0-liter V8, the FX50 Millionaire Edition sells in the price-inflated UK market for a princely €95,450 – about $144k in 'merican greenbacks, or more than twice the base price for us non-millionaires. On second thought, maybe we'll save those kudos for another time. The FX Millionaire Edition is being unveiled next week, appropriately enough, at Amsterdam's Millionaire Fair.

      I'm European (Belgian) and I'd buy one, always been an infinity fan. It just looks cool, and you hardly ever see any on the roads here.

        Woops, make that Infiniti...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Yeah i need one of those. I hated the restyle when i first saw it, but I have come to love it. It is the most expressive crossover on the road, and wow that 3.7 liter V6 is orgasmic to hear. I could not bring myself to get a V* version because the V6 sounds so sweet.

      It's expensive, but I like it with the blackout trim and wheels.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I don't know why they're doing this, it's the answer to a question that no one asked for... Plus, why millionaire? There's nothing about this car that justifies the price in my opinion. I just don't get it..
      • 5 Years Ago
      I like it....
      • 5 Years Ago
      Oh yeah, that's the car I aspire to owning when I become a millionaire...
        • 5 Years Ago
        thank you! I agree. who would spend 114k on a car with only 390hp these days? not I.

      Also......WHAT Millionaire looks forward to owning a Inifniti.....LoL

      That truly has to be one of the mos hideous cars on the road. Why anyone would buy this POS is just plain stupid.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I do like the wheels though, kinda like an airplane propellar
      • 5 Years Ago
      Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the European market one that DOESN'T embrace silly urban vanity?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Depends on what part of Europe. Over here in the NW part there's quite a few SUVs on the road, European, Japanese and American. Not nearly as much as in the US of course, but they're out there.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Fair enough. But I still feel that charging a boutique sum for a mid-luxury crossover (from an upstart luxury brand at that) is risible, especially when it possesses no substantial upgrades over the lay version and is to sell exclusively in a market that isn't known for its SUV intake. What's next, a G37 Millionaire Edition that costs BMW M3 money?

      IDC if it was the LAST Edition....its ugly.
      • 5 Years Ago
      If it were all Dubai'd out, that'd be far more appropriate.

      But really, if you're talking about a millionaire's toy, wouldn't you start with a GT-R?
