What an absolute stunner!

This grade 4 R32 GTR VSpec II (#136/1306) has just 32k kilometers and looks great in KL0 Spark Silver Metallic on the factory BBS VSpec II wheels. In the interior, you'll find the rare factory airbag-equipped steering wheel! Also in the interior, we see a couple of signs that this car has been stored away from the sun, namely the seats which still appear more grey than blue and the lack of a dash bubble.

The bidding on this R32 starts at ¥4.58M. Please message us if you want a bid, we'd be honored to import this gem.

Beautiful Hakosuka 2000GT that hasn't been chopped up for a GTR replica!

This may look strange to many, simply because nearly all of them had the rear quarters cut up to make them look like GTRs. It certainly accentuates the stock lines nicely in stock condition.

PM us to make this Hako yours, we handle all logistics to get these vehicles from Japan to the US and into your hands!

Another beautiful BNR34 passing through the auctions, this time a VSpec II Nur in GV1 black pearl. This particular example is a grade 4.5 car with an A grade interior which has some previous paintwork on the right side and a chip in the windshield, along with scrapes on the front bumper. It has slightly over 50k kilometers.

Bidding starts at ¥18.9M (~$184k USD)

Another record breaker coming up?

This 2002 R34 GTR MSpec Nur has an unbelievable 5300 kilometers, complete with records! Note how even the zinc coating in the engine bay is intact. It still has a couple flaws, a chip in the windscreen and a scratch on the front bumper, leaving it with a grade 5/A rating.

Starting bid? ¥25m (~$243,200)

Note that, being an MSpec Nur, this car is eligible for show and display, allowing it to be imported with no compliance work in 2023 once it is EPA exempt.

Car Shop ZRS in Japan has this absolutely lovely 1971 Nissan Skyline Hakosuka race car for sale. This is not one of the original S20 GTR race cars, but a tribute that uses an L20 engine punched out to 2.7L.

At ¥10.98M ($107.7k), it is certainly more than pocket change, but if you tried to acquire one of the original race cars it'd likely be more than 3X that. It seems like a good, budget option for a weekend racer.

It seems like every time we turn around, GTRs are even more expensive in Japan.

Japanese dealership GE3y's Co., LTD. has this 7,000 kilometers Nismo R32 GTR in inventory for just ¥18.5M (~$181,350)!

The 560 Nismos built can be identified by a VIN in the form BNR32-100***. In addition, they had no rear wiper/AC/radio, Nismo aero and all were finished in gunmental grey. You can tell this example has likely lived its life inside based on the seats not having faded from grey to the typical blue.

An exceptional Z32 300ZX is coming up at the auctions tonight with a whopping 5,880 kilometers on the clock! This is also a Version S with the Recaro front seats and BBS wheels. With a grade 4.5, we'd expect it to be totally immaculate, but it has some door dings and small scratches around. Still, it has to be one of the nicest ones left.

The bidding starts at ¥3.5M, and the dealer was previously asking around ¥4.95M, so we'd expect the auction to end somewhere between the two. If you're interested in making this yours, DM us for a bid!

The dealer Planex Carsin Japan has put this stunning Fairlady Z432 up for sale for the princely sum of 33M JPY (~$325k USD). These very rare (~420 made) Fairladys were powered by the same S20 powerplant as the original Hakosuka and Kenmeri GTRs.

With the JZX100 turning 25 years old, it means some of the nicest examples have started coming out of the woodwork. This 07/1997 Tourer V A/T TRD Sports Tourer is a grade 4.5 example with just under 30k kilometers, making it one of the nicest currently available. Bidding starts at ¥1.48M, though it will likely end up selling somewhere around double that (if not a bit more).

Are you feeling fast? Are you feeling furious?

Well this R34 will make you furious because it is in no way fast! Built on a naturally-aspirated GT-V, it may lack some performance but the 2 Fast 2 Furious looks are fantastic. Unfortunately, being a 2001 model, it's quite a few years from US legality so we'll just have to leave this gem for the ROW.

Let's start the new year off right with another rare Skyline!

This R33 GTR VSpec is a very rare LM Limited, one of just 188 built (and 1/102 VSpecs). All LM Limiteds were painted in this BT2 Championship Blue and included carbon fiber wing centers, "N1" lip and front ducts), and LM limited C pillar decals.

This R grade example is #50 of the 102 VSpecs built. Though it has a prior front left accident history, we're sure someone would be happy to save some money on buying one of these rare R33s.

Want to make it yours? Message us if you just can't resist that Championship Blue and need to make it yours when it goes through the auctions this week.

Another Millennium Jade R34 GTR MSpec Nur at the auctions with some tasteful, period-correct mods like Nismo R-Tune hood, Z-Tune fenders, side skirts, fender flares, 19" Advan GTs. It even includes the original hood! This is 1/144 MSpec Nürs in Millennium Jade, and 1/300 R34 GTRs in this color.

It only has 54k kilometers, a grade 4.5/B rating, and includes records since new. Starting bid? Just ¥18M

7,469 kilometer Nissan Silvia K's (SR20DET/5MT) up at the auctions with a grade 4 rating. It has small scratches on each panel but is still in remarkable condition. Note the uncracked dash!

PM us for a bid on this Silvia, we'd estimate it'll end up being around $25-30k end price.

That ultra-rare 1/9 R34 GTR MSpec Nür in Silica Breath (or Silica Brass, depends on who you ask). Sadly, despite having just 92k kilometers, this car has a previous accident history with not-so-perfect repairs, which may be why it's back at the auctions after just a couple of months.

Certainly, it is still able to be repaired (budget allowing), and as a 1/9 car with show and display eligibility for the US, it is definitely worth doing so. PM us if you'd like to make this ultra-rare car yours!

There's a very nice first-generation GTR crossing the block in Niigata, Japan this week. This KPGC10 (Hakosuka GTR) has been given a grade 4 rating, very uncommon for a car of this age. We would estimate that it'd take appx. $200k USD to get this one to the US

If you've been waiting for an exceptional R33 GTR, your car has come along!

This 1995 R33 GTR is not only a VSpec, but also an original LP2 Midnight Purple car. It has been given a grade 4.5 rating and has just 33k original kilometers, showing only a couple of minor marks on the front and back bumper. The auction sheet indicates a Nismo ECU but other than that, it appears to be bone stock.

Don't let this superb example slip by, PM us to bid on this beauty!

It's very rare to see a VSpec II Nür thats been let deteriorate like this one has. This 2002 GV1 pearl black example shows paint fade on the bumper/roof, significant paint damage on the hood, a poorly repainted trunk, and replaced left front fender and door.

Despite the cosmetic problems, it is still an honest 108k kilometer car and we're sure some will be happy with it after some cosmetic repairs.

Want it to be you? PM us for a bid on this beauty! The auction begins at appx. $90k USD

It's always great to see an R33 GTR sedan come up for sale! This example being ungraded, unfortunately, means we get no information on the condition of the car outside of that it has 121k kilometers. Who doesn't love a good mystery car?

The auctions in Japan have been flush with rare Skylines lately!

This 1987 Nissan Skyline R31 is the rare GTS-R model, 1/823 built for Group A Touring Car homologation purposes. Differences between this and a standard GTS model include a larger turbo, tubular steel exhaust manifold, and larger front mount intercooler.

This 128k kilometer example is coming up to the auctions at USS Yokohama this week. With a grade 3.5 rating, it shows no indications of previously replaced panels and seems to be quite nice cosmetically.

Message us for help making this rarity yours!

Another rare R34 GTR up at the auctions today! This WV2 Sparkling Silver car is 1/285 MSpec Nürs built, and 1/33 in the color!

What really makes the MSpec Nür special for US buyers is that it is show and display legal. That means that it is exempt from NHTSA compliance requirements (provided the car stays under 2500 miles/year), and once it turns 21 it will be exempt from EPA requirements as well, meaning it can be imported in 2023 with no compliance work as this is a 2002 model. It will have a 2500 mile yearly limit until it is 25, and then it will be restriction-free.

This Grade 4 example has just 85k kilometers and looks like a good example with some small cosmetic issues. At a glance, it looks to be a good example overall for someone looking for an R34 to enjoy. We'd expect a sale price in the mid-high 100s for this example.

We can provide storage and show and display import once the car is of age for any interested buyers, just PM us for more information!

Another gorgeous, rare R34 GTR up at the auctions tomorrow!

This 2001 GTR MSpec is 1/131 ever built in EY0 Silica Brass, and 1/366 for total MSpec Production (numbers courtesy of GTR Registry). With a Grade 4.5/B rating, we'd expect this example to be very very clean (only has a couple small scratches, some small front bumper damage, and a chip in the windscreen marked on the body). It has just 47k total kilometers, with a Nismo cluster swap with records. We'd expect this to go in the mid to high 100s, likely pulling a premium over an equivalent VSpec II due to the rarity of the trim and color.

Message us if you'd like a bid on this Silica Brass Beauty! We can provide indoor storage in Japan until it is of age and ready to come stateside.

11/25/2020

Another super rare color R33 GTR coming up at the auctions. An AN0 Super Clear Red VSpec, 1/142 in the trim and 1/303 total produced in the color. It is a rather clean example with a grade 4 rating and only 29k kilometers. There are some paint flaws around, but the interior has been given the best A grading. We'd expect a sale price of over ¥7M.

Update: It appears this is also a one owner car

Another ery rare Skyline coming up at the auctions tonight! This series 1 3/95 production R33 GTR is 1/492 ever built in BN6 Deep Marine Blue, and 1/143 in this specification. From the factory, the R33 was only available in 2 blues: BN6 and BT2, also known as Champion Blue (only available on the LM Limited).

Factory options on this car include the Kenwood Cruising Sound system and passenger-side airbag.

This car crosses the auction block in a little under 2 hours, so PM us ASAP if you'd like a bid on it or if you'd like to purchase another R33.

11/18/2020

Here's a selection of the R34 GTRs coming up at the auctions in Japan today. The MSpec Nurs are particularly interesting as they will be the next show and display car to be exempt from EPA standards, meaning they'll require no compliance work to import once they turn 21 (below 21 they require significant, cost-prohibitive work by a registered importer to meet EPA standards).

We can offer indoor storage in Japan along with import (both for show and display cars and 25-year-old cars) for these vehicles, just PM us if you'd like to make one yours!

R34s are going up in price significantly, and they're certainly not going to go down once they turn 25. Now is the time to buy!
