The Nissan Silvia is easy to fall in love with, especially if you’re into drifting, because its front-engine, rear-drive layout and extremely lightweight body with long wheelbase and near 50:50 weight distribution make it perfect for the sport. Moreover, there are myriad available parts for tuning Silvias, including two-way differentials for drifting (that lock during acceleration and braking) and countless options for raising horsepower well beyond 300 hp.
Silvias are among the most popular vehicles for street racing in countries like Japan, Australia and Malaysia. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift has millions of Americans dying to get their hands on a Silvia S15, but they must wait until the model is at least 25 years old, or settle for older models like the S12 and early S13. In a famous case of “can’t wait” syndrome, an American was slapped with a huge fine for smuggling his dream S15. So be sure to follow the rules!
Silvias were also quite successful in motorsports over the years. This includes the World Rally Championship in the late 1980s, IMSA GT (GTU class) in the 1990s, the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship, and drift car competition in the 2000s — in which Silvias won seven D1 Grand Prix championships! As of late 2015, a modified Silvia S15 also holds the record for the fastest lap time at Tsukuba Circuit.
The Nissan Silvia was produced between 1964 and 2002. Most models were coupes, but there were also a couple of convertibles and hatchback variations. The very first model was an expensive hand-built coupe, based on the Fairlady convertible, that sold only in Japan. Its name was derived from the warbler (small bird) genus, sylvia. Numerous variations followed between 1974 and 2002, when the final Silvia was produced. These included the S10, S110, Gazelle, 240RS, S12, S13, S14 and S15 in Spec-S, Spec-R and other variations.
The great looking 1996 Silvia S14 in the accompanying photos has an attractive low, wide body with beautiful lines, aggressive headlights and a large rear wing for increased downforce. The interior is comfortable and functional, with sporty meters. The car is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine with N-VCT variable cam timing for the intake valves and a 4-speed automatic / 5-speed manual transmission. As you can see, it’s in beautiful condition with minimal modifications, making it a dream for those seeking to tune a Silvia themselves.

I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience.
Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
