Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R M-Spec Nür sets price record

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 GTR-Registry.com. 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.

The new cars growing their Australian market share

Australia's new-car market might have posted its 30th consecutive month of decline in September 2020, but there are still success stories to be found among several models increasingly dominating their respective segments. While we often look at new-car sales in terms of examples sold, another important measure is market share – or the proportion of sales a single model represents in its segment.

2021 Hyundai i20 N prototype photos: Wakefield track drive

The new 2021 Hyundai i20 N hot hatch will arrive in the coming weeks to take on Ford's Fiesta ST and the Volkswagen Polo GTI – and, importantly, it's coming to Australia. That's good news because, like the Fiesta ST, it will be an orphan in its parent company's local line-up: with no regular i20 models to fill out the range, the i20 N is going to be quite the spectre on Aussie roads.
