Nitro Type Gold is a one-time purchase that upgrades the Nitro Type experience through perks including bonus cash, exclusive cars, and site-wide removal of advertisements. Nitro Type Gold is available for different prices; however, the purchase price only affects the amount of cash that is immediately awarded to your account. Outside the one-time cash deposit, all Gold Members receive the same benefits. The Gold Membership standard prices are below:
- $9.99 Gold - Gives you $2,000,000 Nitro Type cash

Early Gold Membership differences
At its release, Gold Membership was only available for $9.99. It gave a third achievement (The Gold Standard) that had a $5,000,000 cash reward, but today this achievement has been eliminated in favor of a direct cash deposit to the racer. Early Gold Memberships did not give a 20% cash bonus every race; instead, car prices were reduced by 15% and paint job prices were reduced by 20%. For a period of time, only Gold Members were allowed to access the official Nitro Type Forums. When the forums were shut down, this perk was quietly removed from the site.
Nitro Type Gold is purchased via Stripe. Currently, Gold Memberships can only be purchased using a credit/debit card. The option to purchase Gold Membership with bitcoin has been deprecated.
