Auction Report: 1/2/17

This week’s auction report includes translations and hammer prices from last week’s ‘R34 GTR special’. NSXs to Impreza’s and GTRs to Imprezas we also include our top picks from the forthcoming auctions…

 

 

 

Honda NSX

 

In my humble opinion Honda NSXs are best left free of after market bodykits. However there are few exceptions and although I still prefer the ‘OEM look’ this manual NA1 just about pulls it off and will surely attract some interest. Grade 4B with a genuine 84,341kms from new will only add to its appeal so its hard to imagine it selling for anything less than 4 mill JPY.

Nissan Skyline R34 GTR V-spec

 

This is one to watch. On first glance this R34 GTR looks like a winner… As many of you will be aware values are skyrocketing on R34 GTRs, especially on super low mileage examples such as this. However, there’s a possible major flaw here, and that’s the replaced O/S rear quarter. Sure, the repair could have been carried out to an extremely high standard but for a model that has collector’s appeal we feel this particular example falls short. It will be interesting to see where this one turns up. Check back next week for the results…

Honda Integra Type R

An almost identical grade of car to the GTR above this 2002 DC5 boasts an exceptionally low documented mileage of just 14,182kms! But perhaps in contrast to above the rear repair will likely put off less buyers. Obviously this still isn’t ideal and we’d expect the price to reflect such a repair, however its hard to look past the mileage on this occasion and if the repair is top drawer we expect a far bit of interest in this grade 3.5 ITR. Check back next week for the results…

Subaru Impreza STI Type R 

 

The classic shape Impezas are rightfully receiving interest as of late. Considerably more affordable than P1s and obviously the 22B its hard not to see the attraction. With the majority attention on version 5’s and 6’s we see better value in the version 4. Although a little up on the miles this grade 4 has shaken remaining which indicates its been in recent use. On an older car we generally feel this is a more positive indication of the quality but ultimately the inspection will reveal its true condition and whether its a ‘minter’ or a ‘munter’…

Toyota GT-Four

 

Released around the same time as the Impreza Type R above this S205 GT4 is another model feel deserves more attention. Although a year too old for the projector headlights this model does come with sports ABS and dual airbags. On first impressions a grade 4 with a genuine 100,453kms does make this example seem attractive. With WRC credentials to boot we’re tipping the GT4 as a model for the future. Check back next week for full details…

Honda Integra Type R

 

Those looking for a DC2 ITR will struggle to find a better example on paper. Touted as the best handling FWD car upon release these are an absolute joy to drive even today and grade as 4B with a genuine 69,226kms this OEM looking 98 spec will surely attract plenty of interest. Question is… is it as clean as it looks? Full report next week…
