1992 Nissan Cima VIP
VIP cars run the gamut from mild to wild. This 1992 Cima favors the former and is as eye-catching as they come. Finished in a one-off Dark Fuscia Metallic, this V8 sedan is offered with a mere 62K verified miles. The body is in great shape other than a few minor chips and dings associated with daily use. Sporting some expensive upgrades such as the 18" SSR Koenig wheels and brand new Fortune Auto suspension, not to mention some rare factory options; this Y32 is as desirable as they come.
The interior is full of high-quality materials and power equipment. The leather dash is in good shape and lacks any major cracks or distortion. Eagle-eyed enthusiasts will also note custom door cards that have been upholstered in soft gray leather. Electric windows, locks, and mirrors are standard and work as they should. Surprisingly this Cima includes a power passenger and driver seat which were uncommon at the time. Best of all, this Nissan came with factory power reclining back seats. A digital climate system with functional A/C makes this cruiser ideal for year-round use. A US Pioneer head unit powers a set of Skar speakers with the assistance of a Kicker amplifier and a 10" sub in the trunk. The quality is fantastic and improves long road trips. The carpets and headliner are in good nick and a functional power sunroof adds some ventilation and natural light to the cabin. HID foglight and LED headlamps illuminated the road ahead much better at night than the factory halogen bulbs. The driver can also turn on a set of RGB underglow when the sun sets, and boy does it look good!
The mechanical underpinning is tried and true Nissan and these VH41DE V8's are inexpensive to service since parts are readily available stateside. This powerhouse is fresh off an oil and filter service and turns over quickly with a twist of the key. A custom tri-tip exhaust polishes off the back end. However, two turndowns at the back axel are the real star since they give off that charismatic V8 rumble that you wouldn't expect out of a luxury sedan. Power is fed to the rear wheels through an automatic gearbox. The transmission shifts as it should and is geared properly for US interstate driving. The suspension is surprisingly comfortable for the ride heigh. This Cima sits on Fortune 500 coilovers, and the suspension is further bolstered by a set of SPC front traction and tow arms. New tires sit at all four corners on the staggered 18" SSR Koenigs. They provide plenty of grip despite the slight camber and quiet down the ride nicely.
This VIP cruiser truly is one of a kind. For those who want a turnkey show car, we can showcase nothing better than this wild Japanese Classic!
