With ‘The Gran Turismo era’ cars climbing in value quickly over the last 12 months, the red Tommi Makinen Editions are in serious demand and are tipped as a fantastic future investment, we are very pleased to offer this fantastic example which would look at home in any serious car collection, or indeed this example is ready to be enjoyed as a weekend luxury.


Imported in 2015 by Ross Sport, the car has documented servicing and invoices as detailed below.

The car has had a speedo cluster replacement, which is fully documented (due to failed fuel gauge).
Mileage documented when imported, and cluster changed shortly after by Ross Sport (with details within the paperwork file).

Correct mileage works out to 53,609 miles.

The car had a full service by APT (Automotive Performance Tuning) in July 2015, including cambelt, oils, filters and wheel alignment, at the same time the car was put on the dyno and was proved to be a healthy example with 282bhp.

In April 2016 the car was serviced by MG Auto Motorsport LTD.

Also within the history file, are details of the Cat1 alarm/immobiliser which have been fitted, and various invoices totaling many thousands of pounds.

Body & Paintwork

As with the rest of the car, the bodywork is in very good order, with no damage or corrosion on the car at all.

In 2015 the car went to PW Pro (highly regarded detailing company) and had detailing work totalling a cost of £1,716.00, and the in 2016 the car went back to PW Pro for a full detail again and ceramic coating, at a cost of £1,920.00.
As you would expect, the original passion red paintwork still looks fantastic!
We have measured the paintwork with a paint depth gauge and it appears that the car is still in its original paintwork (we cannot measure plastic panels – bumpers etc).

Anybody who knows these cars will know that, like most Japanese cars of the era, the paint is quite thin and quite soft so are susceptible to marks/chips – this example in in great condition with only a very few small very small marks and this is being very fussy..

All badges are in very good condition, as are all the lights, most of them being new genuine items.

The decals are all original items, and not cheap lesser items.

The wheels are unmarked, and present really well.

An extremely well presented example throughout.

Interior & Trim

The interior of these cars can quite often be the downfall, with many showing signs of age/wear throughout, but particularly the front seat bolsters, among other areas.
We are pleased to report that this example presents very well.

When the car was imported, it had various new genuine parts fitted to make it stand out as one of the best examples, such as all new door seals, a brand new correct steering wheel, gearknob plus various other parts.

Both front seats are in great condition, with none of the usual ‘bobbling’ material on the bolsters, and likewise the rears are in good order.

Being without modification inside is almost unheard of, no extra gauges here, or screw holes on the dashboard.
The only non original item is the stereo which is the stereo that was in the car when it came over from Japan.


The somewhat legendary 4G63…..

With only 53k miles, this engine feels very fresh and drives superb.
This example is very healthy, with a dyno graph printout from APT (Automotive Performance Tuning) showing 282bhp.

Starting from cold, the car does not smoke, and the engine does not have the usual tapping when cold (or warm for that matter).
When driven the car has great performance, even by today’s standards this is still a very capable machine.

Smooth power delivery throughout the rev range, with no smoking either when on boost or on overrun.

The engine bay itself presents very well, without any modifications.
Anybody familiar with these cars will know that brackets, fixings, and bolts do show signs of age very quickly/easily, but as the pictures demonstrate this example is in good order.

Running Gear

As with the rest of the car, all running gear is in perfect operating order.

The brakes are very effective, and pull the car to a confidence inspiring stop, nice and straight.
All suspension is without any noises, and handling is simply sublime.

The gearbox is without any crunching either changing up or down the gears, and the clutch is a pleasure to use.
All wheels are unmarked, and have matching premium tyres fitted.
