Subaru 22B for £90k?????

Post by Chris the Sheep » Thu Feb 08, 2018 12:05 pm

Just say these two for auction in Japan on Torque-GTs website!!!! Are they for real? Makes the Spirit R look like good value for money!

I'm on the hunt for a new car this summer and I always hark back to the classics but the prices of Skylines, Supras, and NSXs is just going crazy. It just dones't make sense for a daily driver when you compare tothe 370Z, Cayman, Evora etc.

That's a guide price, doesn't say whether it actually made £98k or not.

It's surprising, though, as it's not even 100% stock by the looks of things

It's priced so you feel (can tell the Mrs) that it was a bargain, if you paid only £89k for it...

22B's are worth it though imo.

I know the R version is rare, as is a NSX with only 10,000 miles but this is getting stupid.

Is a 22B a three and a half rotor?

Surely it's closer to a 2 and a 3rd rotor...?
