Porsche 959, 22,800 yen! £135 at today's excchange rate! NIB on eBay £1,200.

And the Egress was more expensive than the Bruiser.

What year is the price list? '89/'90?

I did start adding the RRP in yen to all the models in the reference pages but no longer have the function to do so. Must be because of all the updates to the site, think only Chris or Twinset will have the answer??

Yes, and I am hovering over the 'Buy it Now' button on the basis that I am not sure they are going to re-release it!

From my Blackwells book from 1989 how would you like a 959 body set kit for £24.99p - or an SRB sticker set for £3.20p - or even a Vanquish body set kit for £12.99p - if only ;)

For another comparison I paid £105 / £108 for my hotshot in 1985. I bought a re-re in 2007 as soon as they appeared and it cost £106 delivered to my door. Then about a year later the pound collapsed.................
