Chassis no. GCZ32507838. Platinum Mist over Charcoal leather. 3.0-liter, 300hp twin-turbo V-6, 5-speed manual, books, tools, spare, original. storage bag for the T-tops.

Evaluation: 2+2 model. Sold new in Japan and lived with original owner for 28 years. Showing a believable 14,488 km (9002 miles). Small scuff on the left front bumper and another on the bottom of the chin spoiler. Tidy interior with minor wear on the outer bolster of the drivers seat. Small bubbles in the passenger-side door panel. Curb rash on the left rear wheel. Automatic folding mirrors aren’t functioning. Clean, detailed engine bay, but slightly dirty underbody from road use. Not often seen in such original condition. Located in Florida.

Bottom Line: Although JDM imports like this are new to our American eyes, they’re at least 25 years old by the time they get here and plenty have been driven hard, modified, smoked in, etc. This one isn’t perfect, but it’s quite good and it’s unmodified. The low odometer reading is an added appeal. At the end of the day, though, it didn’t get much attention, with no last-minute bids and a final price a bit lower than what an American market Z32 Turbo in this condition would bring. For reference, the same car sold at Bonhams Greenwich last year for $26,880. A rare example, and a good value.
