Auction Report: 23/11/16

The auctions have certainly picked up pace this week with a selection of very special cars on offer. Although a mere snapshot of what’s currently available the following 7 cars make this week’s auction report for their own individual qualities. We kick things off with an Omori factory special…

Nissan Skyline R34 GTR – S1ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglus9rbqfvvhfvfw-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglus9rbqfvvhg47b-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglus9rbqfvvhh1xt-gc5-7

 

Perhaps unknown to many there were only 122 Active red Nissan Skyline R34 GTRs ever produced. From this already limited number only 47 were non V-specs which makes the example you see before you exceptionally rare. Furthermore this stunning looking GTR has had the Nissan Omori factory treatment and been spoilt with the sought after S1 set up. There is a catch however… its an R grade. Although we’d be the first to say the importance lies within the inspection a quick glance at the auction sheet depicts a rear quarter replacement which is a repair we’d rather avoid. There is a hint of more serious repair work too. A real shame as this otherwise looks like a very special GTR indeed. That aside we still believe it will fetch a premium. Full translation and hammer price next week…

Nissan Fairlady Z – NISMO editionaewihqoqpvbpaqmy1kymta0wwavnn3kvy5b1aultvec6h-gc5-7 aewihqoqpvbpaqmy1kymta0wwavnn3kvy5b1aultvejvw-gc5-7 aewihqoqpvbpaqmy1kymta0wwavnn3kvy5b1aultvfgxe-gc5-7

 

Another limited number car to grace our auction report this week. The NISMO edition Fairlady is not only a rare sight in Japan but there were a handful of enhancements made over the base model Z33. Firstly the body was improved by increasing the welded area and adding additional reinforcement bars and panels. It also featured Potenza RE-01R tyres, re-tuned suspension system which included performance dampers, and new designed exterior. Rays alloy wheels, a NISMO dual exhaust system and livery kit also set this model apart. With a grading of 4B it looks like a decent example too.

Toyota Supra RZ TT6 (Twin Turbo manual)ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglurysvtthmtjdnz-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglurysvtthmtjlee-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglurysvtthmtkifw-gc5-7

 

There’s no hiding the fact that TT6 Supras have received a huge amount of attention over the past few years. The demand remains strong partly due to the limited number of high quality examples available plus the fact the 2JZ is an exceptional engine! So when a grade 4.5B examples comes up at auction plenty of heads are turned including our own. We’re very keen to view this Supra in the flesh to ensure its as good as its grading suggests and with a genuine 49,651kms from new it has the potential to be a real corker.

Toyota GT86 (Supercharged)ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglurya3qgedqbvg0-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglurya3qgedqc47o-gc5-7ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglurya3qgedqd1y7-gc5-7

 

This GT86 makes this week’s auction report for sheer modification prowess. We’re yet to see the same level love for this model currently being shown in the US. A trip to SEMA will only highlight the sheer number of tuned GT86s stateside and we feel its only a matter of time before we see more of the same here in the UK. Although an R grade there’s some serious goodies lavished on this example including an HKS supercharger and TRD suspension. Check back next week for the full specification and hammer price…

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6.5 Tommi Makinen Editionooaybrixbw7hiyxquediaagqalurckga18ilr2t5ce0b-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxquediaagqalurckga18ilr2t5clzq-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxquediaagqalurckga18ilr2t5dj29-gc5-7

 

Another Passion red TME makes our auction report this week. Grade 4 and with a genuine 88,239kms from new it looks on first impressions like a worthy purchase. However grading should only be taken with a pinch of salt. We’ve seen grade 4’s with accident repair and full of rust so we always stress the importance of having an inspection undertaken in the flesh from a trusted and experienced source rather than going off the auction sheet alone. We’re anticipating a hammer of near to 3 mill JPY on this one but at the speed they’re been appreciating we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it fetched over 3 mill.

Mazda Savanna RX7ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglus9yifznndco1n-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglus9yifznndcvr3-gc5-7 ooaybrixbw7hiyxf0rvyosic0bxqglus9yifznnddssk-gc5-7

 

A car that makes our auction report on looks alone this FC3S earns a serious amount of cool points in our opinion. The retro look is very much back on many car enthusiast’s radars and this Savanna model has it in abundance. Although a genuine low mileage of 31,318kms the R grade and automatic transmission does let it down but I have to say its still a great looking model that deserves a lot more attention.

Honda Civic Type R (FD2)aewihqoqpvbpaqmy1kymta0wwavnn3kvy5bo39xl960zn-gc5-7 aewihqoqpvbpaqmy1kymta0wwavnn3kvy5bo39xl96hq3-gc5-7 aewihqoqpvbpaqmy1kymta0wwavnn3kvy5bo39xl97erk-gc5-7

 

This grade 4.5B FD2 makes the cut simply due to the fact that it looks like a nice genuine example of this fantastic model. 60,170kms from new and a decent amount of Shaken remaining (Japanese MOT) adds further weight to the cause plus Vivid blue pearl is an irresistible colour in the flesh! We do expect this particular example to fetch strong money but like any cars that come up at the Japanese car auctions, you have to be in it to win it!
