A few months ago this slammed Toyota 2000GT spread like a gasoline fire across Teh Interwebz. Many thought it was real. Of course, 2000GTs are so rare that anyone who’d really shakotan one would simultaneously be considered a god among men and Satan himself.
In fact, it’s a custom diecast built from a 1:18 scale AutoArt model. The RS-Watanabe wheels were cast from resin and measure 7mm in front, 9mm in back. The “tires” are also made from resin, and even sport the Bridgestone Potenza tread pattern.
Now it’s for sale on Yahoo Japan Auctions, and as of this writing has been bid up to ¥11,099 ($111 USD). That’s a bargain, considering the basic stock-ride-height AutoArt model will run you about $100. But that’s not all.
The builder/seller, who goes by the name Krazys_boss224, is also selling a 1:18 model of every Nissan nut’s wet dream hakosuka.
Again, the base model is a highly detailed AutoArt Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R, and its deep barrel Wats and tires are resin. The hako comes with an added on resin chin spoiler as well to complete the shakotan package.
The Skyline is going for a bit more, ¥16,000 ($160) as of this writing. You might not be able to afford your real dream nostalgic, but you can now at least have a drool-inducing replica on your desk.
Krazys_boss224’s customs aren’t limited to Nihon steel, either. See some of his other creations below.
Very very, nice !!
I wonder if he would take a commission!
Woah, what the hell is that bottom one?
brian, the bottom one is a lotus europa. japanese love that car
Oh cool, thanks.
The 2000GT looks really cool with the drop, but I’m glad it’s fake.
“…simultaneously be considered a god among men and Satan himself….”
Wow, now I gotta get one. (The stock 2000GT)
Some of us still don’t get this – like we don’t get stick-on air scoops and Pep Boys spoilers.
Nice way to ruin the values of real cars.
they’re models, wtf are you talking about? and if they were real, there’s nothing wrong with them. the only car besides the exotics that holds real value is the 2000gt anyway. a hako is not an expensive car.
First time I slobber on my book.
They look broken
You misspelled “awesome”.
Are there models of the red Lamborghini gallardo lp570 superleggera for sale in the UK.
