$430,000 Nissan Skyline and $805,000 Fairlady sales are historic record-breakers

While film-famous muscle cars stole car auction headlines the world over last week, a few sales in Japan this week had us doing double takes. At Best Heritage (BH) Japan’s Tokyo Terrada auction, a 1973 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R and a 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z432R sold for ¥47,300,000 ($430,483) and ¥88,550,000 ($805,700), respectively. The sales set new records for Skylines and Z cars alike, and in doing so blew their #1 (Concours) values in our Hagerty Price Guide out of the water.
