Japan Golden Week Holiday & Japanese Car Auction Schedule 2018
Here are two more 1993 R32 GTR examples for those wanting a current price guide on importing an R32 GTR from Japan in relatively clean and standard condition with under 100,000 km.
Both of these 1993 R32 GTR’s were auctioned this morning at USS Tokyo. We did not inspect these vehicles in person so can only be guided on condition based on the auction reports.
Considering where we believe the prices are heading on R32 GTR’s, a 30% or more increase in the next 12 months would not be surprising.

The grey 1993 R32 GTR with 92,762 km (and extensive service records) appeared to be the cleaner of the two. It sold for 2.215 million Yen FOB or about $36,200 AUD complied in Australia (or $22,600 USD landed in the USA – once it turns 25 years old).
The body and interior appeared relatively clean with some minor modifications fitted. Minor faults mentioned including a note about the airconditioning.
The white 1993 R32 GTR with 88,523 km passed in (reserve price not reached). Last bid was at the equivalent of 2.23 million Yen FOB, indicating the owner would probably want about $37,000 to $38,000 AUD complied in Australia (or $23,000 to $24,000 USD landed in the USA – once it turns 25 years old).
320 km/h speedo fitted on 17 April 1994, with records showing 88,523 km total. Some paint issues and other faults noted.
Every vehicle we source for our clients is carefully checked in person to ensure top condition prior to purchase. Auction reports are fully translated and pictures provided of any faults and aftermarket parts.
Typical pricing at the moment imported to Australia for clean and original June 1992+ R32 GTR models with less than 120,000 km that we target is from about $35,000 complied for a non VSpec and from about $40,000 complied for a VSpec, on top of which you need to allow for tyres and on road costs in your State.
We can source anything you want directly from Japan at cost direct prices.
Whether you’re looking for a low km 1993 R32 GTR like these, or another year or model of vehicle we can find it for you in nice condition.
More pictures are provided prior to auction for each vehicle of interest, with any faults shown so you can clearly see the condition before we discuss whether to bid, and your budget.
It is vital when sourcing your vehicle to use an agent that takes the time to physically check each vehicle and looks beyond the auction pictures and report to confirm condition. Some vehicles may have an unpleasant smoke or other odour, rust underneath, or other faults which are impossible to know without inspection.
