Home / Social media / Cars / This mint Nissan R34 GT-R is probably the least valuable car Manny Khoshbin has driven all year...


When any of us here at SXdrv become billionaires, it’s very, very likely that we’d spend the cash pretty much the same way real estate genius Manny Khoshbin and avid car collector spends his - on all the coolest cars on the planet. The self-made made has his fingers in all sorts of lucrative pies, and one of these tastes a lot like hypercars with a side order of supercars. While most of his income is from property development, the man does make a fair share of money buying and selling some of the most expensive and rarest cars in the world. The cars that he’s managed to fill his garage with are the ones that appreciate in value, so even when he buys one and does nothing with it. When he’s bored and he flips it he makes more money than most see in a year - money makes money yo.

We’re quite convinced that when any of the main players in the world of hypercar production release a new model to the world, that they’ve already called up Manny and offered one to him. With such a keen interest in these technological marvels and the ability to be able to not only see these special cars up close, but to actually drive them the way they were designed to be driven, and back to back to, he’s among the foremost authorities on these kinds of cars. Take the range of Bugatti Veryon models that have been created over the years, well Manny has not only driven all of them, he has a few of the very limited models in his garage. If you can name a hypercar or modern supercar, Manny either has one, or had one, or will have one. Luckily for us mere mortals with 0.07% of Manny’s income, we can get out fun from fast modified cars that were once mass-produced, and if you’re anything like us you can rattle off specs of all manner of JDM engines like the 2JZ and the RB26, enough to make Manny feel out of his depth.

Luckily he's one of those chaps that likes to expand his knowledge along with his experiences, and so that's where this minter of a 1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R from Pterodactyl Tactics comes in. The car was given to Manny to drive and experience so that he could not only compare to his collection, but just enjoy everything that makes these JDM legends so special. It will be interesting if the Midnight Purple GT-R piques Manny’s interest enough to convince him to buy some special models for his own garage, although he’d need to build a separate garage for these kinds of cars because they’ll be quite out of place amongst the trio of Bugattis (Chiron Hermès Edition, Veyron Grand Sport, Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse), the many McLarens including the Carbon Black P1, a bunch of Mercedes-AMG models, some Rolls Royces and more. While a boosted aftermarket favourite like the GT-R sounds like a good idea to you and me, for someone like Manny it’s sorta like slumming it. Even with Manny’s money thrown at an R34, his off-the-floor hypercars will still offer a smoother and faster drive. 

Take a look at the YouTube video where the man with arguably the coolest supercar and hypercar collection on the planet gets his hands on some very, very tasty JDM metal in the form of PterodactylTactics's ridiculously neat and clean Nissan R34 GT-R: I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON ONE!
