I have just had some information back from the last few auctions over in Japan by a buyer who I have used in the past. It seems as though you can now purchase a nice R34 GTR for less than 26K delivered to the UK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

They have sent me the last few auction sheets and there have been 6 R34's sold and the most expensive was a V Spec 2 which sold for £32K and thats UK delivered, taxes paid + Alarm, service etc etc.

There was one R34 GTR in Blue with 20K's which had a wing replaced making it a Grade R0 which sold for 20K uk delivered :eek:

Seems that Nagoya and Osaka auctions are very cheap or the Skyline is hitting rock bottom?

Interesting though:

It may be because the Z car and Skyline concepts are so close to release.

Anyway I hope they keep dropping, may be I will be able to afford one then:D

I just hope it doesn't knock down the proce of my R33 GTS too much :(

I hope they don't keep falling too :D

No sign of UK prices dropping as I've been keeping an eye on them.

Last of the legendary RB26 too. Interesting though eh?

Hmm

I hear all the time about how you can get r34s' for 20K landed, r33's at auction for 8K, R32's 3K.

Truth is you cant, a good R33 GTR still fetches 15K in japan, a good R32 will still go for 10-12K. If you want a good one you have to pay the right money for it, the cheap ones are out there but the thing is that UK prices have dropped so much that its not worth importing one from Japan unless you find something special and worth spending the money on.

I'll have a 1999 R34 GTR for 20K if you can get one, landed, sell them all day long, but you cant.

Also, apart from a last few, in the next couple of months you will no longer be able to import a R34 from Japan ever again unless someone buys a model report and puts one thru crash testing which is unlikely. The result of this is no more R34's on our roads which will make the ones that are over here very rare and hold thier price well. If you have a R34 now, you are one of the privelidged few and have a little bit of history.:)

Dirk's right 100%
I've got the same list as Hugh and the normal used car dealers over here say that prices are firming up especially on late R34s because they are simply not available any more.
There are still plenty of people who want RB26s who suddenly realised that it's too late because the Nur spec ate up all the production.
A vspecII for 32k delivered in the UK would have to have cost about 4 million yen over here which makes it the bargain of the year.
One dealer has a standard 2001 vspec II with 4000kms listed at more than its original list price when new.

I'm interested to know more about the impossibility of importing an R34 - is this an SVA thing? Why would it be a problem if they're already (for the most part) Type Approved etc, having been a UK model?
