A new record price has been set for a Nissan R34 GT-R at auction, with a pristine example selling for ¥33,205,000 at auction in Japan, according to according to That’s the equivalent of AUSD$437,500, US$313,400, £241,900 and €266,600, excluding commission and delivery fees.

With just 6817km on the odometer, the Millennium Jade-finished M-Spec Nür eclipsed the previous record set back in 2018 when a White V-Spec II Nür went under the hammer for ¥32,000,000.

Just 285 examples of the special edition M-Spec Nür were made, going some way to explaining the prices realised at auction.

Powered by an uprated version of Nissan’s legendary RB26DETT twin-turbo inline six-cylinder, the M-Spec Nür (the Nür stood for Nürburgring) featured larger turbochargers with increased boost. Inside the turbos, steel blades replaced the ceramic versions to handle the boost increase.

Inside, the M-Spec Nür scored minor enhancements like different coloured stitching on the trim and a speedometer that went all the way to 300km/h. Under the bonnet gold-coloured valve covers replaced the regular R34’s red examples while the VIN plate was also finished in gold, over the regular car’s silver plate.

Like just about any Japanese performance car, its official power output was rated at 206kW (due to local regulations) but in reality there was over 246kW coming from the twin-turbo six.

This particular example is M-Spec Nür number 63/285, finished in paint code JW0 Millennium Jade.
