Honda has just marked its 50th anniversary in Australia – and to celebrate the Japanese manufacturer has wrapped some of its most iconic machines in gold vinyl.

Honda Australia CEO Hiroyuki Shimizu said: “We thought about how we could celebrate our birthday and our unique diversity in a bold and fun way. I mean, who has ever seen a golden mower or generator before?”

To celebrate, it gilded a Civic Type R, a Acura NSX hybrid supercar, a HRU19 Buffalo mower, a EU22i generator, a CBR1000RR Fireblade, a CRF450L and a CRF50F kids motorbike. Unfortunately (or thankfully, depending on your feelings about the gold vinyl), they are one-off items made especially for the anniversary – and as a consequence, won’t be on sale. If they were though, could you be tempted?
