I contacted VP of Media Marketing for Nissan USA. No reply back so far.

"Hey Kyle:

Thanks for the flag. Sorry I didn’t respond…email can get pretty congested.

It’s always interesting to see the vintage Nissan and Datsun cars hit BAT. There have even been a couple I’ve toyed with bidding on myself, though I am not sure I have the extra time right now to enjoy a project.

Those SE-Rs are fun cars for sure! Glad to have you in the group of die-hard enthusiasts!

Cheers,

Brian

Auction ends in just over two hours. I am still drooling over the pictures and you bet I saved all the photos provided.

Sounds like it's going to a good home, although I still say it shouldn't be put on the street. One text notification at the wrong time and it's toast.

Ya I think he made out pretty good. I knew when many people were saying that it would go over $40k that it was unrealistic. Someone brought this up but if you look at BaT’s history, there are literally dozens of CRXs, GTIs, Civics that sold for over $20k. So when those cars reach above$30k, that’s not too far away from the mean and mode selling prices. But the standard deviation on the SE-R was much higher. Up until this point, the highest an SE-R fetched was just over $12k. So $30k was pretty high over the average already. That car truly is a unicorn not just in condition also pricewise for the SE-R. It will probably always have a $20,000 value gap between it and the rest of the SE-Rs. Is it worth more than it sold for? Apparently not. I’m definitely from a biased group, but I think it was worth more than 33.5k. There will never ever be another one like that until that one goes back up for sale.

Someone may ask, does this change the market for the SE-R? Hagerty discusses it a little bit in their article on the car. They say it doesn’t because it’s an outlier. Statistically, as was already stated, they are correct. This may now grab more people’s attention that were not previously aware of the car, but that doesn’t mean that they will fetch more.

By far the most entertaining auction I’ve seen. Kind of bummed Nissan didn’t go after it, Although maybe they did under a secret alias
