Evaluation: Showing just 4074 km (2531 miles). Excellent original paint and bodywork. The engine compartment shows like new and retains all the factory equipment which is rare for any Skyline. The underbody is excellent and has no visible corrosion, and the pinch welds are all undamaged. The car also retains its factory exhaust which is among the first things swapped on these cars. The interior shows no wear or use. With so few kilometers and exceptional condition, this car could very well be the best, original R32 GT-R out there.
Bottom Line: One of just 1306 V-Spec IIs produced and with few time capsule Skyline GT-Rs like this in existence, this was a big miss on Bonhams’ part. Exceptional GT-Rs just about sell themselves these days, but this one ran towards the end of the sale and to an empty room. There are people who will pay up big time for this car, they just weren’t at Quail Lodge on Friday afternoon. The seller was right to hold out for more, which they shouldn’t have too much trouble achieving.
