Legal Import of R34 GTR?

I would like to buy my first skyline and I came across vistec r imports and saw they had 3 R34 GTR for importing "legally" to USA. Here are the links:
vistec-r-imports
vistec-r-imports
vistec-r-imports

Are these really legal to import?

First two links work, third doesn't. They're the only R34 GTR's that are eligible for import (1999 R34 GTR V-Spec in MP2) but it's not straight forward. They can only be registered for Show and Display.

Check the colour code on the VIN plate to make sure they actually are Midnight Purple 2. They look more MP3 to me but it could just be the pictures.

MP2 code is LV4, MP3 code is LX0

Very expensively priced but I guess they have a captive market. I wouldn't pay that sort of money for an R34GTR.

The N1 isn't on the list for eligible cars under show and display, well not on the October 2014 list date anyway, not sure if its been updated since.

The type of car needs to be approved and then each individual car on its own merits

150k for a R34 is way to much, At that price you can buy all sorts of other cars. I mean i realize its an R34 and thats like the holy grail and all..but...150k can get you so much more.

R32 and R33's go for a fifth that in exceptional condition. Just wait until they become import friendly and itll cost significantly less.

Besides that, that are not road legal, they are limited to specific conditions. Many people have US R34's but they are show cars, drift cars or are props like Paul Walkers R34 was. I want an R34 but its best to sit and wait.. Save the money if you have it and when one becomes legal to drive, you can outright buy it and owe nothing, and have money left over for tasteful upgrades.
