If you thought the 2000 Honda Civic Type R that sold for JPY 11 million or roughly PHP 4.9 million a few weeks back was crazy, you should check out the prices of Nissan's halo car from the 90s to 2000s – the Skyline GT-R.
This white 2002 Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nur is currently for sale through Japanese auction house BH Auction. The price? The GT-R is currently listed for JPY 50 million or PHP 22.3 million. Take note, that's just the starting price for the vehicle.
What's so special about this R34 GT-R? For starters, it's the highly sought-after V-Spec II Nur variant, of which only 718 were built in total. The other factor is that it's literally brand new. The car has only covered 10 km so far, factory delivery mileage. What's more, it has never been registered before. With that, whoever purchases this GT-R would be the very first owner.
As you would expect from a car of this condition, the GT-R's condition is immaculate both inside and out. Thanks to the photos provided, some of the original plastic is even still intact. The under chassis shows no sign of dirt, and the factory marking can still be easily seen. Heck, it even comes with a set of unused OEM floor mats still inside the original plastic covering.
What's interesting is that this isn't the first time the car went under the hammer. In January 2018, this particular car sold for JPY 32 million or PHP 14.2 million at an auction in Japan. It seems the current owner decided to leave it in the same condition he bought it. Now, the owner is cashing in on the spike in Japanese car prices by putting it up for auction again. Assuming someone does buy it, it will likely continue to remain in the same state – a museum piece at best.
So far, there haven't been any bids for the 10-km Skyline GT-R. But if someone does, it could become the highest price ever paid for an R34 GT-R globally.
