Another thing to mention about how much these cost is that this car a year ago may have been cheaper but with exchange rates it would have cost probably about the same or more. Current USD to YEN exchange is actually favorable so this car would have cost me 15-18k more had it been last year at this time if the prices were the same. Something to consider, but I wasn't really thinking about it until I did some looking.

For example. The GTR cost me 18.5million Yen which came out to $162k with $1 = 114 yen the day I bought the car
1 year ago the exchange rate was $1 = 102-104 yen for October which would have been about 178-180k.

My bets are the car won't leave Japan. He'll get an offer before it even reaches US
You might not be wrong. I’m not intending to do that but it is a real possibility although I think having it in the states would automatically bump up the value.
