Auction Report: 16/11/16

In this week’s Japanese car auction report we begin proceedings with a car we’re huge fans of… the Honda Mugen RR. We also report back some interesting findings from last week’s auctions!

Honda Mugen RR

We love a Mugen RR! This grade 4 example with 43,925kms from new will surely attract plenty of interest given its rarity. Check our Mugen RR review below…

Nissan Skyline R33 GTR

With the recent surge in R32 & R34 GTR values the R33 is predicted to follow as it nears 25 years and being available to the US market. We’ve already seen a recent spike but believe there’s more price increases to follow. This grade 4B, low mileage R33 looks like a good example on paper so will be interesting to see how it performs at auction. Check back next week…

Toyota Chaser Tourer V

We’ve seen an increased appetite for the Toyota Chaser in recent months. The 1JZ is a fabulous engine and this is most likely the biggest draw for many. The main problem we find when searching for customers is finding a genuine high quality example. Popular with drifters many have had bumps and bruises and generally feel more worn than we’d like.

Subaru Impreza STI Spec Cga5rkm2w2gyhnotwyzueyipkygoft8wmv7ah2oaxqjffhgga-gc1-7 ga5rkm2w2gbznbe5q35jtxjcjccljqwf2yh32hmgyr6xzn9b-gc1-7 ga5rkm2w2h3n58b6gmjmo47mquusxez4h1rk1lwvy3ukkckj-gc1-7

What’s better than a Hawkeye STI? A widetrack Spec C of course! In all seriousness the STI is a superb car in its own right but there’s something just that little bit more special with the lightweight Spec C. Exclusive to the Japanese domestic market demand remains strong on this model and this particular Hawkeye will undoubtedly attract lots of attention.

Nissan Silvia Spec Rga5rkm2w2gyhnotwyzueyipkygoft8wmv7ah2oaxqjfzemta-gc1-7 ga5rkm2w2gbznbe5q35jtxjcjccljqwf2yh32hmgyr7hwsvb-gc1-7 ga5rkm2w2h3n58b6gmjmo47mquusxez4h1rk1lwvy3udrixj-gc1-7

Although not necessarily to everyone’s taste this S15 Spec R could come in at a reasonable price given the results of last week’s S15 that went through USS Tokyo (details below). Whether its modified for street or track use remains to be seen but it certainly makes a visual statement!
