Introducing my new Zed - Fairlady Z Version Nismo 380RS

Recommended Posts

Fairl(ad)y looks awesome on those LMGT4's :-) I'll have to swing down past yours sometime to let you take a proper look at her :-)

Dude, congratulations (along with plenty of envy) on purchasing a beautiful rarity. I've a feeling you've posted on the US website as that is where i saw your first post, what can i say but enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. You can tell the impact your Zed has made by the pages of "welcomes". There are so many beautiful touches to it but my fave is the turned out lips of the wheel arches :teeth::):teeth:

Found this awesome taster video on the GT Channel that helps explain the concept behind the 380RS, it's role in dominating Porsche in the ST1 endurance series & its heritage in Japanese Motorsport :-)

The full best-motoring video goes on to pit the 380RS against a Porsche 911 GT3, NSX-R GT, FQ400MR EVO & a Mines modified 350z.

So I recently moved house & had a barn (read garage) built to store my pride & joy - I also took the opportunity to buy a K3 Karcher with an Autobrite HD foam Lance - results below;

I have to say I was pretty impressed with how thick i managed to get the foam, I've seen it ridiculously watery before but not with this :-)

Awesome find, hope you look after it well! As I'm sure it's the same with most of us here, you get that feeling when something is quite special... maybe it's jealousy lol :lol: *now awaiting subtle mod build* ;)

They are not very common at all, even in Japan they are few and far between with the limited production of them. In collector's circles over there it's widely regarded as a future investment, provided it's stock and in excellent condition.

 

They vary between 3.5 million Yen & 4 million, mostly on colour (white is the most desirable), mileage, condition & mods.

 

I've seen some rougher examples in silver go for around the 3 million mark.

 

Todays exchange rate has those at:

 

4M¥ = £28,000

3.5M¥ = £24,500

3M¥ = £21,000

That's before shipping & taxes, obvs.

You bought at the right time G, with the pound now at rock bottom.

 

Saw a couple for sale in Japan when googling this morning, talk about tempting, this is a cast iron rare classic of the future. There were probably more 2000GTs made than 380RSs and look what they're worth now!

LOL Adrian,

 

I have a wee spreadsheet made-up of all the 380's that come on the market - that particular one has been on sale since January :-)
