Classic Car Auctions says:

Just 29,000 miles and in excellent overall condition...


  • Finished in blue/black metallic over Alto Grey with a black leather interior
  • Imported from Japan in 2011 and little used hence its lovely condition
  • The low mileage (28,700m - 45,865km) is backed by a comprehensive history file
  • Early service history in Japanese. Last MOT with 'no advisories'. Very attractively guided 
  • With R107 prices rising rapidly, this low mileage, 5-litre R129 offers tremendous value
