What you are all missing is that his R34 is in the US of A, and is probably one of only a handfull that is street legal in the good ol' US of A where it costs an arm, a leg, your kidneys, and god knows what else to actually get it passed all the regulations and then registered. It would not surprise me if the vast majority of the $200k he spent on it was to actually get it legal.
I believe nowadays it can't be done, or at least it is not worth the time and effort anymore. A while back there was a US dealer/importer trying to almost give away a number of R32's and R33's that he was stuck with because he could not get them through all the regulations and get them legal.
