RAM
is the requirement only rarity or are there any other specifications also ? like sports car or comfortable cruiser etc etc....?

by the way i dont think there is a db8 - maybe its db9 ur referring to..
and the new GTR is just GTR and no SKYLINE..

aparrently nissan wants to retain the SKYLINE moniker only for the sedate sedans and not for this car

actually a good option would be to select a decent car and get it personalised/modified by autopsyche

How about an armor plated Zil limo? Or, maybe an old Trabant? They'll be RARE alright. Not sure about the well done part though.

SUV - Lamborghini LM 002 or AMG tuned G Wagon.
Sports - Pagini/Ascari/Bristol

I dont know about the budget,but i am sure he wants to use it as a daily car.He wont be using it for a speed run or the likes for that matter.He is looking for a face in the crowd set up for sure.The second choice i gave was the new beetle.

Man i thought i gave a farely broad spectrum of choice but you took it to another level.... Beetle and Aston DB9 !

No offence but a lot of these upcoming filmys are all talk, let him put his money where his mouth is before going on a hunt.

The Nissan GT-R (No longer known as the skyline would be a good bet. Its expensive, and not going t get easy to find. Another good car, cheaper than the GT-R would be the Mustang GT-500 Shelby/Cobra. Thats a car not many persons would want to bring in so the rare status would remain as so. Contact Dippy or Fireblader85 for further suggestions on rarity.

why not get a standard1000 one of the very first cars, swap it with a better engine and use it?
another option i say would be the contessa get a new heart for it from isuzu the same stock diesel and i think it will be very easy to maintain it too!

these cars will cost around say 5-6L max to get one and restore them completely and will be really low on maintaincance too!

they are rear right? why import the others at such heavy prices when the criteria is to just own a unique car?

Firstly we need to know what type of a car hes looking at? A sports car, a sedan or a full blown SUV.

He could go in for the Nissan GTR, an LS600 Lexus Hybrid (Rare and a Toyota easy to maintain). He could also go in for an Audi Q7 but the 4.2 diesel which is not available here.

Q7 is getting common in the film industry. Dont think there is too much of exclusivity to be had there.

Ram, try and get the maximum budget he can spend, so we can try suggest something that exceeds it.
