It seems no-one is letting go of their GTRs!

If you were inspired by the recent Unique Cars Tribute to Torana issue, finding a car to buy could have been difficult.

Owners seemingly have been holding on to their cars and competition for what is available - especially XU-1s - has been pretty fierce.

That could change if people unleash a flood of decent new stock into the market, leading to a softening of prices.

The LC XU-1 was built in similar numbers to the LJ [1633 LC, 1667 LJ] but the earlier cars are scarce and rarely come onto the market.

If you find an ex-Police Torana with no spoilers and in a bland colour it will likely comprise an amalgam of GTR and XU-1 parts, with better performance than a stock GTR but similar pricing.

LC GTR $45,220 [4] 

LC XU-1 [N/S] $39,500 [1] 

LJ XU-1 $91,600 [5]
