If you're still sour about missing the chance to own a new Nissan Skyline GT-R in the 1990s or 2000s, we might have just found the perfect vehicle for you - a virtually brand-new R34 Skyline GT-R.
Better still, it's not just any GT-R. This white two-door coupe is a GT-R V-Spec II Nür, Nissan's farewell to the iconic fifth-generation sports car with all the good bits fitted from the company's R34 development cycle.
The Nisan GT-R V-Spec II Nür was the final R34 production model, released in in February 2002, and judging by the odometer on this particular example it hasn't seen much action since.
Incredibly, 15-years after this GT-R was built the odometer only reads 10km, surely making this one of the lowest-mileage R34 GT-Rs on the planet.
Named after the Nürburging in Germany where the R34 was developed, the Nür editions share most of its components with any other series II R34 GT-R - but not in the engine bay.
Nür models were fitted with an updated RB26DETT engine featuring a strengthened block based on Nissan's N1 race engine. Bigger turbos were added with stronger blades which increased lag, but supported much more power.
While claimed power output remained at 206kW (even though they'd leave the factory with around 246kW), the new block and turbochargers allowed tuners to increase output up to 340kW relatively simply and safely.
And while previous GT-R models used Nissan’s five-speed, Nür models gained a six-speed made by Getrag. Brembo brake calipers were standard equipment, as was the bodykit based on the V Spec II with carbon fibre reinforced plastic bonnet.
Exclusive to Nür models was a speedometer the read up to 300km/h, gold-colored N1 engine covers, interior stitching with iridium interior trim pieces and a gold VIN plate.
The final GT-R Nür editions are also very rare. Around 1000 we're made (Nissan initially intended to make 500 units, but that was increased to 1000 customers demanded), but only 300 V Spec II-based Nür GT-Rs like this one were delivered to customers, making them even more desirable.
As a result, BH Auctions expect the GT-R to sell for between $317,000 - $380,000 when it goes under the hammer at the Tokyo Auto Salon on January 12.
