Auction Report: 13/12/16

An early edition of our auction report this week brings a number of JDM performance car icons to the party. We also share last week’s auction results including the infamous NISMO 400R many will already be aware of. We kick things off with one of our faves, the Honda NSX…

Honda NSX

A firm favourite here at Torque GT the NSX is a 90’s engineering masterclass. Even by todays standards the build quality would put some exotic and prestige models to shame. Make no mistake this is a proper sports car that can driven daily. This grade 4.5B example with a genuine 71,560kms from new looks on first impressions to be worth a close look. Housing the must have manual transmission we anticipate a hammer price of around 4.5 mill JPY. Check our latest feature of the brilliant NSX-R below…



Nissan Silvia Spec R (Rocket Bunny)

The Rocket Bunny styling always sparks controversy. Loved by many and despised by an equal number there’s no denying the visual statement these bodykits make. Although I can appreciate the undeniable presence of this car, personally I prefer the original lines of the S15. This example is graded R which could be down to something minor but there’s just as much chance it could have been in a serious impact. This as always is the importance of a physical inspection prior to the auction taking place. Full details and hammer price next week…

Mazda RX7 Spirit RA

The Mazda RX7 Spirit RA is considered the Holy Grail model amongst FD3S fans. Limited to a production number of 1500, 1000 of which were Type As. Carbon RECARO seats, BBS alloys, rear storage compartments and exclusive suspension were all fitted from the factory. This high grade example with exceptionally low mileage is one for the collector. We still believe this model is currently undervalued and this particular Spirit R could be a fantastic opportunity to grab a piece of rotary history.

Subaru Impreza S204

Another highly sought after model by Subaru enthusiasts the S204 is a limited model exclusive to the Japanese domestic market. With only 600 in total released its very rare to see these in the UK let alone Japan. It not just about limited numbers however, this hawkeye model boasted a pioneering suspension set up and beautiful carbon black RECARO seats worth close to £3000. As a grade 4B with lovely low miles we’ll be watching this one very closely. Full details next week…

Toyota Starlet GT

This is without question the lowest Toyota Starlet GT we’ve ever seen. With a genuine 11,890kms from new its barely been run in! From the auction sheet alone it appears to need a little bit of cosmetic improvement but its certainly nothing serious give its age. Being a lesser sought after model than many of the obvious JDM cars such as GTRs this could well come in at a reasonable figure. Drop us a line if you’re interested in getting it inspected and bidding. Failing that, check back next week for full details…

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6.5 Tommi Makinen Edition

pz06nl9fidboomg0v0uo0avkeqfnnxq3eudodn3hbroa-gc5-7 pz06nl9fidboomg0v0uo0avkeqfnnxq3eudodn3hbzff-gc5-7 pz06nl9fidboomg0v0uo0avkeqfnnxq3eudodn3hcwgx-gc5-7



Tommi Makinen editions have firmly made the limelight as of late. This is mainly due to the sudden surge in values, particularly the Passion red version but alternative colours are certainly a worthwhile consideration given the substantial savings on offer. Although a grade 3 there is a chance that all thats needed is a some bodywork attention on this low mileage TME. Check back next week for details on our inspection…
