Nearly Brand-New R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R Asks Almost $500,000
Nissan’s Skyline GT-R models are performance icons of Japan, and among these, the examples of the R32 and R34 generations of the 90s and early 2000s are perhaps the most sought after. These beasts come with all-wheel drive, dual turbocharging, and can be exploited by the aftermarket well beyond their modest (probably underrated) factory power of 280 horsepower. Heck, it was the Skyline GT-Rs that gave the model its “Godzilla” nickname that carries on to today’s Nissan GT-R.
Want one? Prepare to import one and make sure it is over 25 years old to drive it legally and avoid federal property seizures. For now, that excludes the green Millennium Jade 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R pictured here (too young!) And for sale in Japan. But it’s so much to choose from, it might be worth buying and just parking in your collection to watch for a few years. Oh, just one thing: you’ll need $ 485,000.
This GT-R Spec V II Nür model is listed by JDM Expo as “BRAND NEW CONDITION!” We kept the uppercase letters on the list because, well, they’re so real they deserve to be TYPED THIS WAY. The Nissan only has 362 km (about 220 miles!) On its odometer, the delivery plastic still apparently on its seats, and has no nicks, dents or out of place trim. It is, in essence, a brand new 18 year old car.
The R34 Skyline GT-R’s mileage is ‘checked’, and the interior ‘still smells like a new car’. Its original manuals are included, as are “service records,” although the latter part is confusing – what maintenance, besides keeping air in the tires and occasional engine starts, this Nissan minty was it given? Well, actually, I hope that means the oil and fluids have been changed from time to time, as has the gas in the tank, and the hoses and the like have been checked. A lot of work can be required to keep a car fresh from the factory, er, cool in the absence of actual use over the years.
So what are you waiting for? Want a new Nissan Skyline GT-R Spec V II Nür? Contact JDM Expo for more information. We’re not sure you’ll be able to bring less than half a million dollars and take the car home, but the seller ends Skyline’s pristine list with “BARGAIN THE BEST PRICE.” Maybe you could win a few cents off the total, or a deal on shipping here at the JDM Expo showroom in New York?
