Auction Report: 30/11/16

For everyone that tuned in to our auction report last week you’ll be shocked at the hammer prices for the red R34 GTR S1 we shared considering the extent of accident repair! This week we share a Homologation special and a Spoon engined B-series but kick things off with a genuine Hakosuka GTR…

Nissan Skyline KPGC10 (Hakosuka)

or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpeigwljgxslgvx9-gc5-7 or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpeigwljgxslgcxn-gc5-7 or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpeigwljgxslhap6-gc5-7


The KPGC10 is arguably at the top of all JDM fans Christmas list. The stark reality is 99% of us will be very disappointed come Christmas morning. This very rare and sought after model comes with a price tag to match. With values climbing well over £100,000 GBP even for poor examples most of us can only but dream of owning such a Japanese cult classic. All is not lost however, the little brother KGC10 comes in at less than half the cost of the GTR and looks almost identical. We’re currently restoring our own Hakosuka which we hope will be ready for show season next year.

Honda Civic Type R (EK9)

This EK9 really caught our eye, particularly the SPOON B18C written at the top of the auction sheet. If it does indeed house the SPOON engine then a small fortune will likely have been spent on this Type R. Its most likely been used on track and graded as an R its probably seen better days. However for anybody looking for a track car then this could quite possibly be the real deal. Full translation and hammer price next week…

Honda S2000 Type S

If you’re looking for a convertible for next Summer then the S2000 is a superb option. Even better is the JDM only version AP2 with the 2200cc engine, better still is the more focused Type S model with stiffer suspension, improved aero and exclusive interior. Although certain rarer cars require longer to locate, its worth bearing in mind that due to the timescales involved with importing from Japan its always best to start looking for a car around 4 months before you want to drive it away.

Nissan Skyline R34 GTR V-spec II

or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpei7yqhxmeqkdeh-gc5-7 or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpei7yqhxmeqkl5w-gc5-7 or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpei7yqhxmeqliwe-gc5-7

With so many drawn by big power Nissan Skyline GTRs its always nice to see a high quality factory original example turn up. In this day and age its much rarer to see such an original GTR than one that’s modified and this grade 4.5B V-spec II with a genuine 47,090kms from new appears to be great representation. We expect this one to fetch 5 mill JPY plus. Keep your eyes peeled for the results next week…

Honda Beat

We really hope 2017 brings more Honda Beats to the UK. This ultra cool KEI car is somewhat unknown to anybody residing outside of Japan. With a 660cc engine as standard don’t expect much in the way of mind blowing 0-60 times, but do expect plenty of fun from this rear wheel drive, mid engined roller skate. With a 8500 redline we can picture these zipping in and out of city traffic. And with super strong residuals in Japan its a city car you won’t lose money on. Check back next week for full translation and hammer price…

Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution

or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpeianpxtwcnfmtc-gc5-7 or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpeianpxtwcnfukh-gc5-7 or7z4jyw5zvonk5ewpnpdsb116bdrpeianpxtwcngrlz-gc5-7

Most of you will be surprised to hear that the Mitsubishi Pajero Evo is a a homologation special. Released to gain entry into the Dakar Rally T2 class this is a serious piece of kit and perhaps more surprising is its relative low value when compared to other Homologation specials of the same era. Based on the past 3 months data we’d expect this grade 4B with 78,425kms to fetch around 800,000 JPY at auction but we’ll be able give you the exact figure next week…
