Exporting the First LEGAL MSPEC NUR to the USA Under Show and Display
June 02, 2019 Posted by: Doston

Over the past year we have had the honor of working with one of our good friends and loyal customers, Don. Don reached out to us last summer in search of an Nissan Skyline GTR R34 that he could legally import to the USA. There are only two R34 GTRs legal under the Show and Display law, those being the 1999 VSPEC in Midnight Purple and the 2002 MSPEC NUR in Millennium Jade. After spending a month or so scouring the market and going back and fourth between the two options we found the perfect car for Don and made the purchase!

Don made the smart decision to go with a 2002 MSPEC NUR in the beautiful Millennium Jade! There were only 144 MSPEC NURs produced in JW0 color and only 285 MSPEC NURs produced in total making these cars VERY rare. Some differences on the MSPEC NUR over your typical R34 GTR is the N1 spec engine with many N1 internals and N1 turbos, exclusive gold Silica Breath color engine covers, full scale 300 KMH speedometer, leather seats and much more! 

Once we purchased the car Don went to work on getting approval from the US Government to import his MSPEC NUR legally under Show and Display. After a few months of going back and forth with the EPA and NHTSA Don got the approval in February of this year! After installing some parts on Don's NUR and arranging export paperwork we finally were able to book a vessel for shipping. 

Only a few days ago on May 22nd 2019 we delivered the NUR to the port where it was loaded into a 20ft container and by now has already started it's journey across the ocean. Don's MSPEC NUR will be making history as the first MSPEC NUR to be imported LEGALLY under Show and Display law. While he will be limited to only 2,500 miles per year under this law he will still be able to drive his R34 GTR in the USA without any worry of it ever being seized. 

We are beyond grateful to Don for allowing us to be apart of this history making process with him and allowing us to find him is dream car. Check out the complete process on our video below or on our YouTube channel.  If you are in the market for any car from Japan, wether it be your run of the mill R32 GTR or something super special like Don's MSPEC NUR, reach out to us. You can reach us the quickest on our Facebook page or by email at defendgarage@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
