Auction Report: 9/11/16

We get straight into the good stuff this week with arguably one of our favourite cars to come out of Japan. We also share a couple of surprises from last week’s auction report including what can only be considered a bit of a bargain on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 1 RS…

Nissan Skyline Kenmeri
211850641_b662aa 211850642_d92cc7211850640_b6d5df

For many the Kenmeri is considered one of the best looking cars to come out of Japan in the past 50 years. Although lacking the finesse of the Toyota 2000GT there’s no denying this 70’s Skyline has aged extremely well. With values of the KPGC110 going stratospheric the KGC110 seems like a far more reasonable proposition and a third of the price. Finding one that isn’t a grade R is exceptionally difficult given that this is now 40+ years old car. The crucial importance then should be in the inspection in Japan. We’d love to see more of these on UK roads, check back next week for the hammer price and translation…

Nissan Silvia S140006 0007

This 1996 Nissan Silvia made our picks as it was simply too hard to ignore. Bright pink with a New York inspired backdrop on the bonnet it stood out like Donald Trump’s haircut. Perhaps unlike Trump, beneath the brash exterior there appears to be some serious substance to this S14. Check back next week for a full rundown of mods and what it fetches at auction…

Nissan Sunny0003 0004211964319_5260c4

Much like the Silvia above this 1997  B110 Sunny really caught our eye this week. Partly because it was bright orange but mainly due to the fact is was very different. Left had drive and clearly used in anger this is a possible project car with signs of rust and corrosion dotted around the auction sheet. Whether its too far gone will be a question for our inspection team in Japan but it will be interesting to see what this relatively unknown model will fetch.

Nissan R35 GTR (NISMO lookalike)211844641_d0a9ad 211844642_07e35a211844640_3a159e

At first glance you’d be forgiven to think that this was a genuine NISMO edition R35 GTR. Instead, the previous owner of this R35 decided to save himself a few quid and make this 2008 model look exactly like the super expensive alternative. From the auction images alone it looks like the conversion has been carried out to a high standard but from experience this is always a dangerous assumption. We’re guessing there will be areas that aren’t quite right but we’re certainly kee to find out.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6.5 Tommi Makinen Edition211844161_106e11 211844162_06147d211844160_d6ebea

Tipped to be the colour to go for after the red Tommi Makinen this super low mileage grade 4 example will surely attract some interest in tonight’s auction. Given that an identical example in red would likely fetch double auction we think this could be a great buy for someone looking to grab a TME. If you’re looking for similar be sure to drop us a line!
