KIDNEY, ANYONE? 11k-mile AE86 Corolla Levin

Toyota Corolla Levin GT Apex 18km 07

Take a gander at what is likely the lowest-mileage AE86 hatch for sale in the world. Listed for sale in Osaka, Japan, this true JDM Toyota Corolla Levin GT Apex reads only 18,260 km on the odometer, or 11,346 miles.

The ad doesn’t mention much in the way of history, but claims that it’s a one-owner car. We have no idea what kind of owner buys one of the most fun-to-drive cars on the planet and barely gets behind the wheel, especially since at the time no one could have predicted that the humble Hachiroku would achieve worldwide fame as touge master and anime star.

We’re guessing the buyer who took it home 30 years ago was already of somewhat advanced age, as the car comes fitted with a genuine JDM parking assistance rod.

It appears to come fully loaded, with power steering, power windows, and a state-of-the-art double-DIN combination stereo and cassette deck. However, keep in mind that if you bring it over you won’t be picking up any US radio frequencies.

In the US, such a car would be subject to all the price inflations — Takumi tax, drift tax, hatchback tax, and JDM tax. In Japan, the obscenely low mileage equates to a ¥5,000,000 asking price, or US$41,015, shipping not included. See the auction here.

Thanks to Ryu Asada for the tip!

    Whoever’s been hiding these clean 86’s away should keep them hidden for a few more years to ensure the tuning fad doesn’t catch up and these stay stock!!
    Hopefully they will anyway.

    I could think of a much better way to spend almost $42 grand.. Sorry, the Hachiroku is great, but not that great..

    Oh man, I wish I didn’t see this website! There is some SWEET stuff for sale on there. O_O

  4. Jared says:

    Remember that last topic we had about it being difficult to find an unmodified Japanese sports car? Someone always has one.

  5. Jova says:

    What?? $41k?? Hell no overvalued

  6. cesariojpn says:

    Is Negotiation a thing in Japan, or a cultural sin? Maybe if they get the S&H and Customs fees added into the price……

    Good God….

    I got great question for this week.

    What is the most overvalued JNC?

  9. Randy says:

    Well, there was that Skyline that sold for $1M, and I remember reading that it wasn’t perfect, so maybe a car that’s ALMOST as well-known/revered COULD fetch that kind of money…

    It’s “only” 1/25 the price.

    It WILL take a special buyer, though.

  10. Cool cassette and radio setup. The premium sound system was one of the hardest to find in Sprinters.
