This 1993 R32 GTR with NISMO Fine Spec engine 2009 and only 55,000 km was inspected for a client at USS Osaka auction and sold on 10 June 2016.
Price withheld at client request.
The NISMO Fine Spec engine was a special limited production run of 70 units offered by NISMO in 2009 at a cost of 1,375,000 yen (approx. $17,400 AUD at 79 Yen to the dollar, plus fitting).

Overall in excellent condition for age, clearly loved by its previous owner and a very rare find even in Japan. Original GTR logo key. Non smoker’s car. Garaged. Airpod filters fitted.
Auction sheet noted that books, paperwork and a spare key and locknuts would be sent to the new owner following auction.
In addition to the 2009 Nismo Fine Spec engine, this R32 GTR had a Calsonic HID headlight upgrade. Auction sheet stated that the car was sent to the HKS Tech factory in January 2010; although details of that trip were not mentioned it is fairly likely that the NISMO engine was fitted at that time.
Other than that, the car was fairly original from apart from a few minor items in the engine bay including air pod filters. Suspension was questioned as possibly aftermarket.
The negative points on the auction sheet listed scuffs on the seats, steering wheel, trim scratches, seat sagging, wheel scratches, rust underneath, and small exterior scratches. However, these are typical auction disclaimer points particularly on special vehicles, to prevent any complaints following auction. The pictures show the real story, as these issues are all quite minor, and overstated in our opinion for a GTR of this age.
