The JDM 1991 Nissan 180SX is fun to drive and a favorite of drifters due to its powerful turbo engine, rear-wheel drive, limited slip differential and plethora of aftermarket options. Japan Car Direct can source this popular Japanese domestic model from a Japanese used car auction at a reasonable price and have it shipped to your nearest port without delay.

The first model of the second generation (S13)

The 1991 Nissan 180SX was the first model of the second generation and exclusively sold in Japan. It’s similar to the Nissan Silvia and was marketed abroad with different specifications as the 200SX and 240SX.

A favorite of champions

Whether you choose a largely standard 180SX or a modified 180SX like this handsome example, it’s hard to resist thinking of the Nissan 180SX as a drift car since so many champions — including Masato Kawabata, Yoshinori Koguchi and Kielan Woods — have competed in them over the years.

High-performance turbo engine

As you can imagine, the JDM 180SX is pretty quick. The standard turbo model accelerates from zero to 62 mph (100 kmh) in about 6.5 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 235 km/h (146 mph) when not electronically limited. We didn’t have a chance to time this modified 180SX while it was in our possession, but we’re pretty confident it leaves standard vehicles far behind.

Nissan’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder DOHC 16-valve turbocharged SR20DET engine produces a maximum 151 kW (202 hp) at 6000 rpm and 274 N⋅m (202 lbf⋅ft) at 4000 rpm without modification. The tuned engine in this modified vehicle easily tops these figures and is mated with Nissan’s standard 5-speed manual transmission, which does a great job of smoothly transmitting all that power to the road.

We can also source the Nissan 180SX in excellent condition with a 4-speed automatic transmission and minimal modifications.Interior of modified JDM 1991 Nissan 180SX exported by Japan Car Direct

Sporty inside and out

While the standard JDM 1991 Nissan 180SX is comfortable and refined with understated styling that belies the sporty performance, this modified vehicle makes its spirited character conspicuous with Bride bucket seats, a roll cage, Next Miracle cross bars and a rear spoiler for serious drifting. Nissan’s optional climate control system and four wheel steering system are not included.

The front MacPherson-strut, rear multi-link suspension was stiffened for sportier handling by Greddy Trust coilovers, but still provides a comfortable ride on regular roads. Standard large disc brakes ensure controlled deceleration.

    5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

  • 5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit. Find me and call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

  • 5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

    5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.
