1995 Nissan Silvia K’s Aero
The Silvia is a charming sportscar in many different respects. Its affordable, reliable, and rewarding to drive. This 1995 K's model is finished in a sexy, yet subtle (KG1) Jet Silver Metallic, and offered with a mere 75k verified and documented miles. This is a factory Aero model and includes all of the desirable Navan aero parts such as the front bumper, front grille, side skirts, rear spats, and rear wing. Set off by a set of Enkei Circular GTA wheels, the body is in fantastic shape aside from some very light etching from age, a few minor door dings, and scuffs associated with normal use. This sporty coupe has several pricey performance upgrades and a few impressive power amenities that allow this car to be daily driven or taken out for a track day! Legally imported and recently serviced this 2.0L turbo, rear-drive rocket is a stellar collector car in impressive condition that can be enjoyed for years to come!.
The cabin is in sharp condition for a vehicle of this age, let alone a Silva. Surprisingly the dash is uncracked and lacks any distortion or fading. Power amenities include a retractable electric sunroof, power locks, and windows. The power mirrors work as well but the driver side no longer folds electronically, a common issue. Cabin upgrades include a functional Addzest head unit and a MoMo wood grain steering wheel. The seats are in above average shape lack any major imperfections such as rips, stains, or tears, and are supportive and comfortable over long journeys. They are trimmed in a soft gray cloth and match the door cards which are in equally good condition. The carpets and headliner have no major blemishes and it's obvious the car was cared for in Japan. The digital automatic climate control system does function but we did want to note the A/C doesn't blow cold at this time.
The simple front-engine, rear-drive layout does wonders for handling and balance. Upfront, the infamous Nissan SR20DET is fresh off an oil and filter service. Thanks to a new 12v battery that should last for years, the little four-banger turns over quickly. An Apex'i Power FC fine-tunes the mostly stock engine and the PFC commander is mounted perfectly in view to keep watch over engine vitals. The tubular exhaust manifold, Apexi downpipe, and the Fujisubo catback exhaust work in unison to add some power to the SR and sounds fantastic to boot. Acceleration is impressive and the power is sent rearward through a close-ratio five-speed manual transmission. The transmission operates as it should and lacks any grinds or clunking. NISMO tension arms were swapped in at some point in Japan and are a nice upgrade to see. We have installed a set of new Fortune Auto coilovers to reduce the fender gap and tightening up the handling. The Silvia corners flat and is responsive to steering and braking inputs. The brakes are confident and the Enkei alloys are all wrapped in new all-season rubber. These tires quiet down the ride immeasurably and should last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
