Thanks for the info :wave
At the end of the day, it\'s meant to be fun - not a political movement! :burnout

Sounds like you will almost certainly have to import one into the UK. Thank-fully around 95,800 R100\'s were produced. So they are still relatively easy to find and come up for sale regularly, especially in NZ,Australia and Japan. I personally have owned 2 R100\'s(M10A) as well as a 1200(STA) coupe and a 1300(STB) coupe. Expect to pay around 6,000 and 9,000 United Kingdom Pounds for a good example. JDM R100\'s are badged as familia. I know ALL the differences between M10A/STA/STB so I can help you avoid buying a replica M10A.

Carl,
 
I have personally seen 2 R100s (imported from USA) in a certain shed in Belgium. There is also another one 5 minutes walk from my current location in Germany. Originally purchased by VW in 1969. They are around and are available.
 
A bit more than one or 2 matey.

I know that some have come in from the states,but I was meaning official at the time of their making when new,sorry I should have said that.
Regards
Carl

R100\'s were mass produced.
For a real investment I\'d go for the "real myth" The Mazda R130.
 
Bertone designed and extremely rare, only 967 produced. Perhaps only 20 still surviving worldwide. Only one known in Europe/UK. I have only seen one come up for sale every few years. This one is currently for sale at a bargain price. 8,035.733 GBP

Is not that rare to meet a R130 for sale and their prices are quite low, comparing to 110s, probably close to a descent R100.There is one currently for sale at yahoo.auctions.jp (search under RX87).  Some months before there was one for sale by j-spec.improts.au (or something).

In Europe most R100s were sold in Switzerland, followed by Belgium and France. For sure multirotor will know if there is anything availiable. US and to a lesser extend Canada are the best places for a car to import besides AU, NZ and Japan (sorry, I forgot the RHD case).
In Greece about 20 were imported, plus one sedan (Familia Rotary SS). Although I saw this car in flesh, something like 33-35 years ago, I cant remember if it was a LHD or a RHD car. I dont know any exports for the sedan model.

I am not a native english speaker, but I dont quite understand your expression. Is this a kind of order?
Anyway, I dont count them, but the last three-four years more than 3 different R130s appeared at j-spec.improts, priced between 20 to 30 thousand Au dollars. The one for sale in Japan right now reaches 1 million yen. If you search at "ausrotary" you will find plenty of information related with cars previously for sale.

Sorry I\'ll try and make myself clearer.
 
 Do you know what price was paid?
 
Actual Sale price = price paid to seller.
 
Sale price=money asked for by seller.

No I dont. Guys from Australia and New Zealand might br more helpful to you.
I have to underline though that a fully restored Cosmo (110s), and in particular a very rare L10A car, is actually on yahoo.auctios.jp with a starting bid of 16 thousand euros and -I guess- a "buy it now" price of around 20 thousand. Cosmos are far more expensive than R130s.

I know this thread is old now but I just wanted to say we had an R100, NTW789J I think. It was my Dad\'s car. Kind of red/maroon colour, sorry i don\'t know the actual colour name. Sold it about 15 years ago but I think a chap in Essex is currently restoring it. You never know, the myth might become a reality... :)
