Make: Nissan    Model: [Silvia S15] Tuesday, 18 January 2022

The '99-up Silvia S15 is the most recent incarnation of a ride that first came to be back in 1966 as a sheath for the long-forgotten Datsun Fairlady platform. Light and liquid in any guise, the Silvia made an impression.

The Silvia, in its most recent guise, is nothing more and nothing less than a enthusiast's ride, a stripper sports car that's short on unnecessary gadgets, high on style, and wicked in the twists, a performance geared stripped to its naked essence.

Like any proper lightweight sports car, the Silvia's front engine rig with a six-speed and a viscous slip locking rear differential set with deep gears. The gauge lay-out is clean and functional, with a brace of three white-faced gauges set directly in front of the brushed finish three spoke steering wheel. Exceedingly functional sport seats provide the driver with plenty of lateral support, which is good, since the tenacious McPherson-based platform holds the rails to the tune of 0.95 lateral Gs.

The magic begins under the hood, where a turbocharged SR20DET four-banger whines to life with 200PS @ 7200 rpm. Between the engine and the road comes the transmission. The newly developed 6 speed manual transmission offers close ratio gearing for outstanding acceleration. A 4 speed automatic transmission, which communicates with the engine management system to provide smooth gear changes, is also available. And the 200SX, like all true sportscars, is rear wheel drive. There are also two base trim levels (in Japan) SPEC-S (SR20DE) and SPEC-R (SR20DET).

Interiorly, the 200SX looks superb. Even when not moving, the car gives off the impression of speed. Its low slanted nose just aches to cut through the air. The sleek body echoes all the great sportscars of the past while being utterly contemporary. In short, when you take a look at the new 200SX, there's no doubt you're looking at a stylish-looking sportscar. Meanwhile every single detail from headlights to tail lamps combine to provide an appearance of unabashed stylishness.

Quite the bargain if you consider that the Silvia's can be picked up for about the same price of a Honda S2000—especially when the 2.0 liter outputs as much as the S2000 and then some.

The car will be available for special view and order at DreamMotor ShowRoom from 10th October 2001 till 24 October 2001. Don't miss out this great opportunity for your free entrance exhibitions..    Comments  [E-mail this to friend(EMF)]
