A Collectable


Recommended Posts

Hi Peoples,

I'm new to the GTR scene as I've been playing with motorbikes when I want to go fast. As the hair falls from my head and starts to land on my back, I'm looking to buy a collectable which I can occasionally take to the track but more importantly is collectable as I want this to be a keeper.

So far from what I've seen on the posts it would seem that the R34 would be the most desirable. Other than a V-spec, is there anything else I should be looking for if I want to keep this for a long time. Also, is there any mods I should be looking to avoid either before I buy or after I buy and want to add later on.

Thanks in advance.

Don't forget the Australian Delivered R32 GTR which is quite hard to find one these's days

So true!

A couple of SAUers own one

And the Group A one offered F/S Thru Powerplay with GIO livery previously driven by Gibbs/Onslow in '92 + spare engine/parts.

Any bids?

To be honest, I wouldnt consider any V-Specs to be collectable. Hell not even V-Spec II's are collectable. Like Tezza said, go for these.

V Spec II Nur - 750 produced

M Spec Nur - 250 produced

V Spec II N1 - f*king very limited

Nismo Z-Tune - 20

There are also other Nismo variants as well such as the S-Tune. Here you go, this one is quite rare, although no one really knows how many were made.

When you say collectable what do you mean?

A skyline will not go up in value. At best it will hold its value for a bit, but in the current economy I doubt it.

Add me to the list :(

I would think that in this country the Aus ones would hold more value in the long term because of the motoring history.

only 100 was sold in the country.

What mxfly said.

If you can get a hold of these,

R34 GTR V-Spec II N1 (about 45 were made)

R34 GTR V-Spec II Nur

R34 GTR M-Spec Nur

R34 GTR Z-Tune

The Nismo Tunes were more so for ppl who have already got a GTR, take it into the Nismo Omori Factory and get the Nismo upgrades done.

The levels of upgrades are,

S-Tune Sports Resetting

S-Tune S1

R-Tune R1

F-Sport GT.

Are Oz delivered R32 GT-R's really considered a collectable? I've never really considered them to be. Maybe perhaps if they're done very low genuine kms and accident free. And were they at around $120k when new, so the ones I'm seeing for sale for example on Carsales, between $38k to $65k.

Honestly I doubt anyone would fork out 65 grand for an R32 when you can buy a Nur for 10-15k more.

Def would say the OZ cars are collectible. They're quite rare and more so had a different spec list to the Jap cars.

I think whne talking collectible people need to stop saying why pay that when you can get this for the same price/cheaper. Collectors pay for the uniqueness of the car and for the history attached. With those 2 criteria the R32 Oz spec cars would be close to the top of the collectible GTR list. In my mind anyway.

It would be interesting to see what one would fetch in Japan.

After All

Only 100 were made

They changed the face of OZ motorsport

They had a unique spec list

Very very small number of them are in original condition

If i had the cash to "Collect" GTR's then an orginal Oz spec R32 in excellent condition would be up there with a Z-Tune and a 400R and an R34 N1, and an R33 N1, and an R32 V-spec II N1 etc etc etc

In 10-20 they will be worth a fortune.

If I had a spare (really) 65k I would buy that black one in a second, its mint. I guess I have a deep attraction to these cars (along with e30 m3's and sierra's, both are on my hit list to buy) because I grew up with them thumping the V8's.

Buy some dvd's from Pitstop on the 90, 91 and 92 Bathurst races or the ATCC series, some great stuff on there.

My passion with GT-R's first started when I watched those Bathurst races live on a big projector at my workplace, esp. the 92 race. Richards actually autographed ones of my friends Nissan T-shirts recently, with his infamous words "you're all a pack of ass holes" on it. Now that shirt will be quite a collectible.

I was also fortunate enough to be a passenger in one of the locally delivered ones back then. It used to be my bosses car. He bought it new for like $118,000 from Hornsby Nissan. 3 months later, a local courier accidentally T boned the car and that was the end of my bosses GT-R experience.

Hahah, no but my old boss was obviously extremely upset. And the car couldnt be replaced because they were all sold out.

He then changed 180 degrees and imported one of the very first Dodge Vipers into the country, at 160,000 big ones. And that was the first car which literally shat my pants when he took me for a spin. I felt my organs under pressure when he accelerated, and when he stomped on the brakes, I almost threw up. I have never been so scared in my life before, but boy was it fun!

That car was later sold to Rene Rivkin. I saw him turn up, dropped the cheque off and slowly drove away with it.
