This Tokyo Auto Salon Auction Is Selling Some of the Coolest Cars on Earth

We can't find a single uninteresting listing in the whole catalog.

Car auctions are often a mixed bag of cool, show-stopping legends and more typical collector vehicles. Usually, there's only one or two star items per auction. This one is a little different.

BH Auction is holding an event at the Tokyo Auto Salon on January 11th, and it boasts one of the coolest lineups we've seen in awhile—rivaling RM's "Youngtimers" '80s and '90s collection . There are dozens of Nissan Skylines, vintage Honda sports cars, factory specials, race cars, and rare oddities like a Koenig-modified Ferrari Testarossa, an AMG-restored Mercedes-Benz 300SL, and even a Nissan 240RS Group B homologation special. Out of the 50 total lots, I can't seem to find one car I wouldn't want to own (though, the lone 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 does seem a bit out of place among all of the iconic JDM hardware).

A few more standout cars include a 2003 Dodge Viper race car, a Caparo T1, a Porsche 911R, two Carrera GTs, a Group A R32-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R, an ex-Super GT Audi R8 LMS, and a Superformance GT40 replica. Truly legendary stuff. Whatever you're into, this auction has it.

As much as it pains me to admit, I do not have the funds necessary to purchase any of the cars offered at BH Auction's event next week. But if you do, I invite you to . Who knows? Maybe you'll find something cool enough worth catching a flight to Tokyo for. Let us know if you do.
