Iconic Japanese car the Nissan Skyline used car price hike, unattainable for most people.

 I remember 20 years ago when you can buy R32 GTR's for less than US$10,000.
Nowadays you'd be lucky to purchase a rust bucket for less than US$40,000.

The United States has strict restrictions on importing used cars that are not sold in the United States. Imports of right-hand drive cars are also not permitted, making it difficult to bring used Japanese cars into the United States.

However, there are exceptions, and cars that have been in production for 25 years are considered classic cars and can be imported without various barriers. This is called the 25-year rule in the United States, and Japanese sports cars are also being bought up.
As the United States buys up, the number of balls decreases and the price soars. Currently, Japanese sports cars such as the R32 GT-R and NSX , which debuted in the 1990s, are being affected by this, and the market price is also rising. The Skyline

GT-R (R34) is what America is currently eyeing Since it made its debut in 1999, the US 25-year rule will apply in five years. It's really on the countdown. Mr. Fumihiro Hagiwara examines whether the used R34GT-R car that is on the table is a purchase. Text: Fumihiro Hagiwara / Photo: NISSAN, Best Car Editorial Department R34GT-R, America's 25-year rule approaching five years later Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) Sales period: 1999-2002 Sales volume: Approximately 12,000 units [Main specs] (1999 model V spec) Body size: Length 4600 x Width 1785 x Height 1360mm Engine type (model): Straight 6 DOHC twin turbo (RB26DETT) Displacement: 2568cc Maximum output/ 280ps/6800rpm Maximum torque: 40.0 kgm/ 4400rpm Vehicle weight: 1560kg Vehicle price: 5,598,000 yen Reference price: 6.1 million yen (V spec II Nur), 6.3 million yen (M spec Nur)
Used cars are often said to be "one price per item", and since there are no other cars in the same condition, it is said that the time to buy is when you come across one.

In particular, out-of-print models that are no longer in production as new cars can only be obtained when the cars that have already been sold are circulated as used cars, so it is necessary to take quick action when you find them.

About 44,000 GT-Rs (R32) were produced in his 1989-1994 period. With the exception of some 1994 models, the US 25-year rule is applied, so the used car market has already skyrocketed.

Nowadays, the sports cars that appeared in the 1990s are popular with used cars made in Japan. is.

Among them, the Nissan Skyline GT-R and Honda NSX Bado are subject to the 25-year rule of the United States, and are certified as classic cars, and there are no strict exhaust gas inspections, so they have flowed out from Japan to overseas. Do you know

This rule was already applied to the R32 Skyline GT-R, which appeared in 1989, and a large number of cheap used cars flowed out of the country. As a result, the domestic used car market has skyrocketed.

R33GT-R that appeared in 1995 in January 2020. About five years later, in 2024, the 25-year rule will apply to the R34GT-R that debuted in 1999.

Therefore, this time I would like to verify whether or not to buy a used R34 Skyline car whose price has already risen.

The R34GT-R is very popular in the U.S. as Paul Walker, the main character in the movie Fast and Furious, has ridden it, so there is no doubt that it will be a scramble to surpass the R32GT-R

. 600,000 yen increase!

As I wrote at the beginning, used cars are one price, so this is it! It's time to buy when you find a car that you think. However, it may be said that a model such as the R34 Skyline GT-R, whose price has already risen, came late.

Looking at the trend in the average price of the last three months, it was about 8.35 million yen three months ago, but this month it is about 8.95 million yen, an increase of 600,000 yen in just three months. And the price range is about 4.98 million yen to about 16 million yen (excluding consultation).

In February 2002, the final model of the Nürburgring was sold out on the same day, with a total of 1,000 V-Spe II and M Spe-II being sold. The photo shows his V-Spei II Nur, the

final model Nur, which has been traded at a premium price since its release until now, has N1 specifications such as the engine and exhaust manifold. Normally, the engine head is red, but the Nürburgring is gold.

Also, the number of vehicles in circulation was about 48 units three months ago, but it has decreased to about 33 units. Among the 2nd generation GT-Rs from R32 to R34, the number of second-hand cars distributed has decreased the most.

The increase in the average price is linked to the mileage, and the mileage of used cars has decreased by 10,000km, from about 48,000km three months ago to about 38,000km. In other words, the current situation is that relatively cheap properties with extended mileage are disappearing from the used car market at a tremendous speed.

In 2001, the M spec was added to improve ride comfort and pursue a sense of quality. The underbody is specially set up, and a hand-stitched genuine leather seat is also used. Nürburgring was also more expensive than Vspe II

Why did the price soar so quickly?

I would like to look back a bit on why the used R34 Skyline GT-R has soared in price.

The R34 Skyline GT-R was a model sold from 1999 to 2002, with a total production volume of approximately 12,000 units, the lowest among the 2nd generation Skyline GT-R. Here are the used car market figures for the R34 Skyline GT-R in June 2011, about nine years after production ended.

Eight years ago, the number of cars in circulation was about 73, more than double the current number. And don't be surprised by the price range, about 1.89 million to about 16 million yen!

The final 1,000-unit limited edition V Spec II Nur and M Spec Nur had a premium price of 16 million yen, double the price of the vehicle itself. However, currently more expensive used cars will be negotiable, but expensive cars have not changed since eight years ago.

The R34GT-R, which debuted in January 1999, underwent minor changes in October 2000. Later models are later models. The V-spec at the time of its debut was changed to V-spec II (the photo shows the standard grade of the previous model)

Currently, 4.98 million is the cheapest used car, but in 2011, the R34 Skyline GT-R was sold for about 1.89 million yen, which is less than 2 million yen.

And the average price of a used car is 4,340,000 yen. It is less than half the current price and lower than the current cheapest property. Looking at this number, you can see that cheap cars are disappearing from the market and prices are soaring.

If anyone has a time machine, I want to go back and buy it! You should think so.

It is only a matter

Of time before the average market price of used cars reaches 10 million yen. .

Why buy even if it soars so much! Can you say Currently, there is a lot of investment in cars, and the value of rare cars does not decrease. Even if the market price of the R34 Skyline GT-R rises, it is unthinkable that it will fall below the current level in the future.

In addition, the current distribution number is about 33 units. If this number doubles, the price may drop, but it is highly unlikely that so many used R34 Skyline GT-Rs will circulate in the market. If that happens, the average price will rise further, and the day will soon exceed 10 million yen.

In other words, around 2024 when the 25-year rule is applied, all used R34 Skyline GT-R cars must be vintage models that can be traded for over 10 million yen. With that in mind, I've come to the conclusion that it's better to buy now.

By the way, the R32 Skyline GT-R sold about three times more than the R34, and even now the number of used cars in circulation is about three times that of the R34.

However, there is no doubt that the timing of the purchase of the second generation GT-R is entering the final countdown.

There is no doubt that it will be quite difficult to get a second generation GT-R of R32, R33 and R34 in the future. R34GT-R is already on the rise even before the 25-year rule is applied

People with money are still buying them daily at the auction houses all over Japan, if you have a budget, you already lost, because bidders of these iconic cars come from all over the world. And your competing with cashed up individuals that has unlimited funds. If you have the money, stop thinking and contemplating because you will be left out.


Now it's time to ride the original! Rediscover the cars of the 80s and 90s 1998 Subaru Impreza 22B-STI version (1999/SUBARU IMPREZA 22B-STI VERSION)

0's and 90's, the performance of domestic cars improved at once and reached the world level. This is symbolized by the success of domestic teams in the World Rally Championship and WRC. Especially in the Group A era, it was based on a commercial car, so the victory here was proof that it was the world's best sports car .

The golden age was in the 1990s, when it became a WR car instead of Group A, but Toyota in 1993 and 1994, Subaru from 1995 to 1997, Mitsubishi in 1998, and Toyota in 1999 became the world champion car. shine. There is a production car that the manufacturer himself tuned to the rally image during the period of raging success. That is the 22B developed by STi, Subaru's motor sports subsidiary. Based on the Impreza

, which won three consecutive victories from 1995, the 1997 model was equipped with front and rear blister fenders and a rear spoiler, and the engine was expanded to 2.2 liters. It was a manufacturer-made complete car with a reinforced drive system and suspension. Because it was a limited release of 400 units, used car prices are currently skyrocketing. One of them is owned by a person who has a deep connection with Impreza. Appearance The first generation GC/GF Impreza was released in 1992, and the lineup includes the WRX, a high-performance version for WRC. WRC entry started the following year, and in 1995 the two-door Ritona was introduced in Japan. When the WR car regulations started in 1997, Ritona-based rally cars entered the race. The 22B model equipped with front and rear blister fenders was sold on a limited basis. The overall width has been expanded from 1690mm to 1770mm, and the appearance of the variable rear large spoiler was a masterpiece CHECK! Impreza with few emblems in the first place. STi image color Subaru mark in the center of the grill, STi on the fender, and 22B on the rear. engine room.
The modified EJ22 is a 280ps genuine EJ20 that has been expanded to 2212cc with a modified EJ22. Flat torque is generated from 2800 to 5200 rpm, and it is a practical range up to 7900 rpm.

A former Subaru designer who can be said to be a

must-have The 22B owner is a designer who joined Subaru in 1989. In his first year at the company, he was involved in the design of the Impreza, which was under development.In the second year, after his boss left the company, he worked on most of the exterior parts, and worked hard until the release with a junior who joined the company later. That's it. He knows everything about the design of the original GC8, but he left Subaru shortly after its release.

He has a fondness for the car model, so he continued to ride the wagon WRX for a long time, but one day he got a chance to get a 555 color individual. When he was talking about it, he heard that the 22B was going to be sold separately, and about 14 years ago, he got both of them at the same time. 22B is now priced at a premium of tens of millions of yen, but at that time it was the bottom price. I was enjoying it because it was a good purchase, but the price of used cars soared in a blink of an eye, and I couldn't let it go.
From the time of purchase, the previous owner had changed to late-type headlights, early-type rear combination lamps, and self-made mudguards. The owner himself put a sticker on it. Goods are also sold under the name of this sticker. Furthermore, it hosts an off-line meeting once a year at Lake Haruna in Gunma Prefecture for the first generation Imp. In a sense, he is a famous person among GC8 series Impreza riders.

In addition to the 22B, he owns the first generation Impreza, which is usually kept in a garage. As a result, there is no trouble, but repair parts are becoming obsolete, and it seems that the future will be troublesome.


The interior is normal just by changing the steering wheel to Sparco. The signature above the glove box is that of STI Tatsumi. The genuine seat is blue and black, but it has been changed to the optional STi sports seat. The frame is made of aluminum and is lightweight. It 's a 2-door, but it has the same rear seat as the sedan . The standard color is blue and black.

The last 22b sold at the action was sold for 15.3Mil yen =  US$113,000


Lottery application for GR Corolla has started. RZ is limited to 500 units, Morizo ​​edition is limited to 70 units, starting at 5.25 million yen

On December 2nd, Toyota began accepting lottery applications for the high-performance specifications of the Corolla series, the GR Corolla RZ and the GR Corolla RZ 'MORIZO Edition' (hereafter: Morizo ​​Edition "RZ" will be accepted until December 19th, and "Morizo ​​Edition" will be accepted until December 18th, and the release is scheduled for the beginning of 2011.

Development of the GR Corolla began with the thought of President Akio Toyoda, aka Morizo, who said, "Because it is a car that many customers love, I don't want it to be called a commodity. I want to bring back the Corolla that captivates customers." The development proceeded with the practice of "making ever-better cars with motorsports as the starting point", which was to commercialize a car that had been trained to win races.

Specifically, through participation in the Super Taikyu series with the "hydrogen engine Corolla", in addition to improving the hydrogen engine in a racing environment and comprehensively refining the vehicle, the master driver Morizo, racing drivers, Rally drivers, in-house evaluation drivers, and other drivers drove the car on all kinds of roads until it broke, and thoroughly identified any problems and made improvements.

The engine is based on the 1.6L in-line 3-cylinder turbo engine installed in the " GR Yaris ", and the piston has been strengthened so that it can handle high torque and high output, and the exhaust efficiency has been improved by adding a center muffler. Achieved a maximum output of 304PS (GR Yaris ratio: +32PS).

In addition, the sports 4WD system "GR-FOUR" is optimized for the GR Corolla specification through the development of the hydrogen engine Corolla. Based on the body of the Corolla Sport, the long wheelbase provides stability at high speeds and the wide tread provides excellent turning performance.

The Morizo ​​Edition is based on the RZ, but has improved power performance by reducing weight such as a 2-seater, increasing engine torque, and optimizing the gear ratio of the transmission. Cornering performance is improved by adopting a monotube absorber and high-performance tires.

At the beginning of the announcement on June 1, it was announced that it would be sold to the general public, but due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection and the shortage of semiconductors, the RZ was sold by lottery on the web (limited to 500 units). In the future, we will consider additional sales while monitoring the production situation. *Application website:

The Morizo ​​edition will be sold by lottery for 70 units, and applications will be accepted at "GR Garage" nationwide instead of the web. It will be the most sought after Corolla and will be a destined collectible.

F1 on public roads, Mercedes-AMG 'One' becomes the fastest production car in Nürburgring ... Porsche's record is beaten

Mercedes-AMG announced on November 10 that the new 2-door hypercar, Mercedes- AMG ONE, has become the fastest production car on Germany's Nürburgring North Course. The measured lap time is 6 minutes 35 seconds 183.

Reduced the lap time of the Porsche ``911 GT2 RS'' by more than 3 seconds.
This time is more than 3 seconds from 6 minutes 38.84 seconds measured by the Porsche ``911 GT2 RS'' (vehicle equipped with the genuine optional "Mantai Performance Kit") in 2021. something to shorten. Maro Engel, Mercedes AMG factory driver and brand ambassador, was in charge of the time attack.

Engel chose the "Race Plus" mode. Active aerodynamics work best in this mode. The chassis is also tightened, lowering him by 37mm at the front axle and 30mm at the rear. Full power is drawn from the motor.

The Drag Reduction System (DRS) is activated by the driver pressing a button on the steering wheel. This accommodates the front louvers and the upper aero elements of the two-stage rear wing. If the system detects deceleration or some lateral acceleration, the aeroelements instantly re-deploy.

 1.6 liter V6 turbo with 4 motors delivers 1063 hp The
midship is equipped with a 1.6 liter V6 gasoline turbo engine inherited from an F1 machine. The piston, crankshaft, and electrical system are specially designed, and the engine is characterized by its extremely high rpm of 11,000 rpm. The maximum output is 574hp/9000rpm. A plug-in hybrid (PHEV) that combines this 1.6-liter V-type 6-cylinder gasoline turbo engine with a total of four motors, two in the front (163hp x 2), one in the turbocharger and one in the engine (122hp and 163hp). and assists the engine power during acceleration. The entire PHEV system draws 1063hp of power.

The electric turbo also works as a generator, harnessing the energy of the exhaust gases to generate electrical energy. This power is either stored in a lithium-ion battery or supplied to the MGU-K (Motor Generator Unit Kinetic). The MGU-K has an output of 120 kW and is located in the engine and is connected to the crankshaft via a spur gear system. This is one of the technologies to achieve maximum efficiency and performance in F1.

The battery cells, their placement and the cooling system use the same technology as the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 car. The lithium-ion battery and DC/DC converter for the 12V on-board electrical system are compactly mounted on the vehicle floor behind the front axle. A high-voltage "EQ Power+" plug-in hybrid (PHEV) system operates at 800 volts instead of the usual 400 volts. Higher voltage levels allow thinner cables, saving space and weight accordingly.

Accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 352 km/h. Uses
