hmm .. a classic car.. im more interested in classic cars..

i don't wanna buy with US dollars. i would prefer buying stuff in EUROs considering that the US dollar is losing value. i'd probably buy me a mazarti or ferrari with my 100,000 Euros then have like 10,000 euros left to spend on shit.

I would agree with you but the fact that Europeans get ass raped with taxes makes the US dollar equal or even worth a little more for what you are paying for. I would buy the Nissan GTR since I live in the states and how practical the car is. I do not like any American cars. They are all essentially the same one way or another and the work ethic on building the cars is poor.

100k?
2nd Gen Turbo II RX7
13b+13b=Four rotor mo'facker
Build 4rotor + automatic racing transmission
That's probably going to be a 50k+ engine build.

Rest of the money
IS300 slammed on Work VS-XX
Turbo GSR EG hatch, slammed

Call it a day.

Nissan GT-R (R35) as my track/weekend car and a Honda S2000(AP1) as my daily drifter.

That should just about cover it. My leftover money would probably be spent on a spoon suspension for the S2000. Both of those cars are more bang for your buck than any of the comparable exotics and they're just as fast.

Sorry I felt the need to post a reply to this, you're a little under budget.

I actually did some research into this and I found that combining 2 13bs does not require too much money if you do it the cheaper way. If you take 2 13bs you can do it by bolting them onto eachother almost. Aside from the plate in-between the two and a custom eccentric shaft, there is not too much work to be done to it, provided you keep a seperate lubrication system and rig the cooling system to work correctly. There's actually a few things you have to that are similar with the ignition system and such like a custom ECU. However that doesn't cost money, its just a pain. At most, I think I found a manufacturer two years ago when I was interested in this that created 4 rotor "26b" and sold it for roughly 10k. You'd actually be surprised how documented this is. Everyone wants to turn they're RX-7 into a 787B inspired 600HP 4 rotor monster. So, if you thought it would take about 50k, assuming what I told you is correct, you probably just saved 20-30k.

The GTR will alone cost you 100k if you're buying it when it comes out.

3 rotor builds cost upwards of 35k+ according to rx7club.com. Basing off that estimate, I assumed it would cost 50k+.

I only want to build a 4 rotor as a drag racing beast.

GTR: US Prices start at $66,675 for the base model. (Wikipedia)

The cheapest AP1 model I can find is $17,500 for a 2003 Honda S2000, which is pretty reasonable so I'm still at least 10k under the limit.


Granted I went for the Spoon suspension. The Spoon suspension that was featured in the SCC S2000 suspension test has an MSRP of $3076.50 so I'm still in the clear and the rest of the hypothetical money can be left aside just in case the dealer tries to rip me off for the GTR or the 17,500 S2000 is in shitty condition or was in an accident (hypothetically. In reality it actually looks okay)

Dealers will charge you MSRP plus an insane markup for the GTR at the launch.

Yeah I definitely wouldn't get it at launch. I'd probably get it after all the crazy enthusiasts claim their GT-Rs. Plus by 2010 there is going to be a V-spec GT-R so the base will probably lower in price and demand especially since it will probably be worth it considering the GT-R seems almost untunable, for now at least.
