    • The R34 is my favorite. Btw, the later Mazda RX-7 releases made 280ps in Japan... that includes the limited Bathurst R variant. The Nissan Pulsar Serie VZ-R N1 Version II is also a cool Japan-only variant. It was Japan's hottest hatch in the late 90s.

  • I know the sports car introduced is attractive, but it doesn't have the respect to buy through the thieves. ‥ Many such sad cases occur in Japan.

  • And nowadays. Much amount of thieves visited from other country and steal wonderful JDM owners from Japanese owners. Fxck of and get away!!!!

  • Another Subaru product I think not sold in the UK was the Legacy GT saloon and wagon, dating back to the nineties and through to 2009. The GT was the twin turbo version developing, I think, that “agreed maximum” 276hp and about 260ft/lb of torque. I owned a 1998 saloon and a 2006 Blitzen model saloon here. The latter was a fantastic car which I still pine for sometimes! Unlike some of the niche versions mentioned in Matt’s video, these GT models were (and still are) quite common sights on Japanese roads, particularly the wagon. I think they were not sold new overseas due to emissions standards (might be wrong) and I believe many are exported overseas as grey imports (if that’s the right expression). Anyway, great performance, though not great fuel economy. There were also S401 and S402 versions which were tuned by STi and had the 2.5L engine rather than the standard GT’s 2.0L version. The S402 sedans are still expensive to buy second hand here. In fact I’m pretty sure the same can be said for the Forester XT, again with a 2.0L turbo, going back to the nineties. And there was an out and out STi version of that too. The XT turbo was still sold here until a few years ago, and may have been recently reintroduced (minus hood scoop)! It’s a pity that the Legacy in particular is known in the UK only really in its non turbo form. Quite insipid in comparison to the GT...

  • The RNN14 Nissan Pulsar GTi-R's were another one vs the RNN14 Nissan Sunny GTi-R's that the UK had. The Japanese Pulsar's made more power than the UK Sunny GTi-R's, although I think that was only due to UK exhaust emmision regs at the time. I do miss my Grey Import Pulsar GTi-R! One hell of a fun car!
