Some cars just stop you in your tracks and this is most definitely one of them. Limited to a mere 250 units this M-spec NUR is beyond special. Produced by Nissan back in 2002 its covered a documented 17,061kms from new which equates to just over 1000kms per year. Spoilt with a plethora of NISMO goodies we can see this GTR attracting heaps of interest Worldwide and consequently fetching some serious money! Hammer price and full translation next week…

Subaru Impreza STI TS NBR (RA)

For all you Subaru fans it doesn’t get much better than this. With only 200 featuring the NBR challenge pack this limited edition missile is so rare we’d gamble there wasn’t one currently in the UK or even Europe. This is something we’d like to change! Keep your eye’s peeled and you may just see one blasting around the UK in the coming months!

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10

Perhaps surprisingly we don’t see many Evo 10s come up at auction in Japan and we see even less with the sought after manual transmission. From a quick glance at the auction sheet this grade 4C example appears to be showered in upgraded parts so we could have something specail on our hands. Full translation and hammer price next week…

Toyota Celica GT4 (S205)

We feel the GT4 is currently undervalued when compared to similar cars of the same era. Touted as a model thats difficult to work on its reputation often precedes it when in actuality this is a hugely entertaining car to drive with rally credentials and a serious cult following to boot. Not often do they come as a grade 4 so this one will be one to watch! Full details next week…

Datsun Sunny TS Special

Being the last Sunny sold under the Datsun brand in Japan the 140Y has retro cool written all over it. We’re seeing more and more interest in the older cars produced in Japan and this TS Special model certainly caught our attention. Grade 4 with a genuine 97,783kms from new this will be one to watch!

With the US market ever closer to being in a position to legally import the R33 GTR we’re expecting values to continue to climb over the coming years. Although a later model series 3 this super low mileage grade 4.5 example is arguably prime investment material. With 19,055kms from new we expect a price tag that will near 3 mill JPY.
