What should I be paying?

Prices of R34s are on the rise, much like every generation of GT-R. The legendary status of the brand as a whole is buoyed by the rolling generational acceptance for import to the USA - meaning that as soon as they hit 25-years old, they can be sold to keen US buyers. This is a good thing for GT-R owners, less so for anyone wanting to buy one.

In general terms though, it won’t do very many mpg (we averaged about 23 not pushing all the time), but otherwise it’s a doddle to daily. The real minefield is the obvious issue of badly thought out modifications. There are some stunning examples out there (with a pricetag attached), but simply running lots of boost or dropping a large mm single turbo onto the RB26 isn’t enough. The key is research, research, research. And watch out for rust and crash damage - the GT-R might forgive a lot of bad driving, but it can’t change physics and the popularity of the cars means that some will try to ‘save’ accidents that should have been broken for badges and bits.
