Auction Report: 26/10/16

As we move into the Winter months our cars are inevitably seeing less use, with some owners even opting to lock them away until the Spring. For those thinking about getting a taste of a fresh import for 2017 now’s the time to start looking. Finding the perfect car inevitably takes time and having it shipped and prepared only adds to this timescale.

This week we’ve cherry picked 6 superb Japanese performance cars coming up over the next few days. We also reflect on last week’s auctions, for those Toyota Supra fans, you maybe in for a shock!

Mazda RX7 Bathurst R

For fans of the brilliant FD3S, a Bathurst R in Sunburst yellow has to be one of the most sought after models. Such is the rarity, we don’t remember the last genuine example that crossed our path. We’ll be keeping a very keen eye on this and may even throw in a cheeky bid ourselves…

The ‘WANT’ is strong with this one. M-spec NUR… TICK! Genuine low mileage… TICK! Grade 4.5… TICK! We get the feeling there’s some extra goodies lurking beneath that bonnet also. Full translation and hammer price next week…

Nissan Stagea 260RS

It maybe an R grade but this Nissan Stagea 260RS is what the Japanese domestic market is all about. Big and bold, you can’t but respect the Japanese confidence when it comes to modifying their cars. The stand out feature on this example is the fact its the 260RS and that means a twin turbocharged RB26 under the bonnet!

Honda Integra Type R (DB8)

Another cool car to come out of the 90’s the 4 door Integra Type R often referred to as the DB8 hardly ever turns up in Japan. So when this grade 4.5 example with a documented 86,322kms caught our attention we had to give it a feature. Hopefully this one will be heading to the UK… watch this space!

Nissan R35 GTR NISMO

We’ve seen a few NISMO R35 GTRs come up at auction as of late. The most surprising factor is that they all seem to be brand new or with a few hundred kms on the clock. Whatever the reason may be we still want one one of these missiles but as you’d expect they’re about as pricey as… well… a missile.

Subaru Impreza Spec C

Another cracking car this 2013 Impreza Spec C has a really menacing presence about it in black. Although we’d like to see more of these on UK roads it will probably be a few years before they become financially viable. Full translation and hammer price next week.

Last week’s results…
