Default Super rare B8 4.0

Only 64,000 km on this black 1995 B8 4.0, number 2 of 6.

Who is going to bring this example to Canada so that we have 1/3 of the world supply of B8 4.0 (along with saint's car)?

oooooo...."drool" It's gonna be too much $$ for me.

Besides...the "wood" on the shift knob doesn't match the rest of the "wood" trim LOL

This must have just been added. I was going through a couple of hours ago and didn't see it there. Good find stirling

I use Brave Auto International. I'm not sure on Mark's current policies, but I'm not sure if he usually offers free usage of "his" auction system. I think he usually requires a deposit, but I've bought enough cars from him that we have a good relationship

Who do you use?

I use jpcenter.ru.
I'd like to find a site with more than 3 months of historical data.

Any predictions on price? I'm going to guess 1.25 million yen.

No one has more than 3 months of data. Everyone has access to the same system and the data is only saved for 3 months. The only way you will get more is if you create your own database and have the info there.

My guess....I don't think we'll know what it sells for. Just like I don't know how much Dwayne's car sold for. I know what the maximum bid was the week prior, but his car sold under negotiation, so I can't see what it went for. I think this car will sell the same way, but I'll guess 1.4 million yen.

That's some good photos there showing how good the condition is.
