1993 Nissan Silvia S14
Re-engineered and restyled of the 1993 model year, the Nissan Silvia S14 is now making its way stateside. Equipped with a fire breathing SR20DET and manual transmission, this playful and well balanced platform is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
In stock form, the handling and power leave little to be desired, however, the S14 is a great chassis to upgrade. This tastefully modified version has only 64K verified miles, featuring the most desirable engine and gearbox you can find. The SR purrs to life with a raspy burble. Its rev happy profile is enhanced with a Greddy Front mounted intercooler and a SARD intake. Acceleration is more than brisk, and the little 2.0L really wakes up as you climb to redline. The 5-Speed manual transmission shifts well, directly informing the driver with a defined click into the correct gate. It shifts without a hitch or grind, and doesn't slip. The best part of the chassis is the handling feedback, which is where this example really shines. The car's ride height has been reduced with a set of Tein coilovers. The lower center of gravity combined with the more aggressive handling characteristics of the updated suspension allows this car to really hug the road. Grip comes courtesy two new tires, mounted and balanced by one of our trained technicians, on 17" white Advan RG wheels. The last little bit of chassis tweaking comes from Cusco camber and traction arms.
The condition of the car can be seen clearly in the detailed pictures provided on our website. The exterior paint is in good shape, and has been updated from the factory black to Ultra Red (AJ4). The C West style kit fits well, and deepens the side sills, front, and rear air dams for a touch more style. The clear coat is in good shape and the body is devoid of any major dents and scratches. With the exception of some imperfections on the front bumper, the paint is better than average for a car of this age. The driver cockpit is in equally good form, with above average seat and carpet condition. It is largely factory, sans the head unit and one or two goodies. One of which is an unobstructive Cusco cage that has been installed to add a bit of rigidity and safety to the structure. The steering wheel has been swapped with a newer, sportier three spoke Nardi designed one. The a/c, heat, and locks all function as they should.
Until this year, this generation of Silvia eluded US shores. Be one of the first to own this 1993 Turn-Key Japanese Classic.
