Rare 1974 Holden Torana L34 SL/R 5000 listed for sale, more than $750,000 expected

A rare 1974 Holden Torana L34 SL/R 5000 has been listed for sale, with price expectations "in excess of $750,000." The high-performance L34 variant was a homologation special introduced by Holden two years after scrapping the originally planned V8-powered Torana during the infamous "supercar scare" of 1972. It went on to win the Bathurst 1000 on two occasions. This example is one of just 263 built.

Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R V-Spec sets price record

A new record has been set for the price paid for a Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R V-Spec at auction. Despite having 65,000km on the odometer and being 20 years old – built between 1999 and 2000 – the hammer fell last month at 15,105,000 Japanese Yen ($AUD206,000). That's half the price of the most expensive Nissan GT-R of all time, however it is believed to be the most paid for this particular model. One of the main reasons for the record price was its paint colour – Midnight Purple III.
