Auction Report: 21/12/16

With the holidays looming we’ve put together an awesome Auction Report for you this week. Not only do we have some truly cracking cars coming up in the next couple of days but we also share our findings from last week’s Japanese car auctions. What better way to start than with an Omori special F-sport package GTR…

Nissan Skyline R34 GTR V-spec II NUR (R1)

Apologies in advance to those who feel R34 GTRs are getting too much attention at present but if there was ever a car that deserved the limelight its this one. It quite simply ticks every box for the GTR fan… NUR edition, Bayside blue, low mileage and treated with the hugely sought after R1 conversion this should be a belter of a car. Graded as a 4B it looks positive from a condition perspective too but as we always stress the importance is in our Japanese team’s inspection. All of this will undoubtedly come at a serious premium so don’t expect anything below £100k landed in the UK…



Mazda RX7 RS-R


Although this grade 3.5B Mazda RX7 isn’t in factory original guise it certainly deserves to make our auction report this week. Being an RS-R this is one of the rarest models released with a limited production of 500 units. Only 250 of these were in Sunburst yellow and the remainder were in black. A celebration of 30 years of the Rotary engine the RS-R was based on the RZ with exclusive Bilstein suspension, body colour and high performance tyres. Difficult to predict the likely hammer price being modified but with nice low miles it will surely attract some attention…

Subaru Impreza STI TS RA

The Subaru Impreza STi TS Type RA edition is car we’ve been hankering after ever since its launch back in 2013. Although this grade 4.5B example appears to be a non NBR challenge pack its still a 1 of 300 model exclusive to the Japanese domestic market. As well as exterior tweaks it boasts better handling through revisions to the struts, springs and dampers, and a quick steering ratio adds even more focus to this Tangerine Orange Pearl missile.

Honda S2000 Type S (AP2)


It could be seen as a testament to the brilliance of the Honda S2000 that we struggle to get anywhere near most of the examples that come up at auction in Japan. Such is their popularity by the Japanese themselves the start price on this S2000 is verging on more than the UK market would be prepared to pay at present! However, what most UK buyers don’t realise is how much better this AP2 Type S will perform when compared to a base UK car. Housing the more powerful 2200cc engine it also came from the factory lighter with an improved suspension set up and exclusive bodykit for better downforce. We’re hoping the UK appetite for these superb cars increases in 2017 but we have a feeling this one will be reaming on Japanese shores…

Subaru Impreza STI S202


Another Subaru to make our auction report this week and for good reason. Punchy power delivery and super sharp handling is a recipe for a hugely entertaining driving experience. Whilst being an exclusive  1 of 400 model the Impreza STI S202 is a car we’ve been fond of for quite sometime. This grade 4B example with a 102,397kms from new looks pretty promising on first impressions but we’ll confirm our findings in the next edition of our auction report…

Toyota MR2 G-limited SC (Super Charged)


The final car to make our auction report this week is somewhat of a rare sight on UK roads nowadays. This 1986 Toyota MR2 has retro written all over it and for those searching for a high quality example with a genuine low mileage there is a high possibility that this one could fit the bill. We’ll be sharing our findings along with the hammer price in our next report!
