Tommy Kaira 25R (R34 GTT)

I am the first and only UK owner of this car which was imported to my order in the Summer of 2007.
It is one of only 163 official Tommy Kaira 25R editions, on the platform of a R34 GTT, with manual transmission (plus electric tilt & slide sunroof).
A number of modifications and (safe) upgrades have been made to car, both mechanically and cosmetically. Car upgrades, servicing and MOTs have been carried out by Serious Performance Autos, with mapping by Abbey Motorsport.

The car has been used on a handful of trackdays, but has never seen the drag strip or been drifted.
There has never been any finance / HPI against the car.
Car can achieve just shy of 30 mpg with sensible motorway driving.


Car History – Headline Dates:
1) Summer 2007: Imported to my order by Newera. Link to original import spec here
2) April 2008: Full stripped down respray in original Nissan GV1 (with House of Kolor lacquer).
3) June 2008: High spec professional ICE upgrades and boot install.
4) November 2008: Power & reliability upgrades. Fitted by Serious Performance Autos, mapped by Abbey Motorsport.
5) September 2010: Total Nissan Magazine 2 page feature.

Z010 – Best R34 (judged by Ajay Panchal, 350Z designer)



The not so perfect bits:
1) The Tommy Kaira digital cluster did not work properly upon import. With some technical know-how the cluster was converted to miles, with the correct odometer reading and the digital speed display calibrated properly.
However, the lights for ‘Peak Torque’ and ‘Shift Up’ points do not function, but there are unused wires behind the cluster for the budding enthusiast to tinker with.

2) The driver’s side interior A-pillar has a small (cosmetic) crack in it. I have sourced a replacement A-pillar which is included in the sale.

3) Some scratches to the centre console and gear surround, that were present on the car upon import.


Price £13,500
(No part exchanges will be considered)

Thats very "Nice", I find some of the TK stuff is a bit like Marmite, but that has changed my mind.
Good luck with the sale

Private number plate has now been transferred off the car, so now on 'S' registration.

Open to sensible offers on the price, but no part exchanges please.

I remember this - A lovely car!

Always surprised to see rare cars like these changing hands, but I'm sure the new owner will appreciate how lovingly it's been cared for.

This car is now for sale in Germany, on autoscout24.de

autoscout24.de/Details.aspx?id=222085500&cd=634865215880000000

@ Mendoza; was the car undersealed at any point during it's time in England?

Is there anyone know on the forum who can fix the Tommy Kaira display?
