This Ultra-rare Imported JDM Icon Was Worth Every Penny

This immaculate 1971 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R was for sale in Houston, Texas on Bring a Trailer. Imported in 2013, this Skyline has around 33 thousand miles on the odometer and is nearly all original down to the jack and tool set.

The GT-R weighed only 2,200 lbs. and was powered by a 2.0 liter inline six that was almost identical to the one used in Nissan's R380 race car and produced 160 horsepower and 130 lbs. of torque. Motortrend estimates that only around 500 original GT-Rs remain on Japan's streets and this example is made even more unique by already being legally imported into the US. This well preserved piece of Japanese automotive history sold for $126K. Totally worth it.
