250 hp. 200 ft-lbs. All from a near legendary turbo inline 4 with the name SR20DET. The car can do most anything and is infamous in driving circles. It has a 6 speed gearbox in Spec R form and can have almost any nissan engine swapped into it. Is it cool though? Can cool people own this car? Can you look at someone getting out of this car and think, "Hey he's a cool looking dude".

This car really doesn't project favorably on its driver/owner/occupants, at least not in my mind. I don't want to drive it all that much. It doesn't look particularly beautiful. It just ain't cool.

I think its one of the best styled cars to ever come from Japan.

Ha, you must be joking. What styling?

I would bestow that honor on the FD RX-7 or the 240Z or the 2000GT.

The headlights, bonnet and front airdam give the car a mean and purposeful look to it.
clarkma5
No, it has no nose and the headlights make it look like the ass-end of a Pontiac Bonneville. The bonnet (say hood, damnit, you're american) has as much character to it as a Toyota Corolla's. It doesn't look mean or purposeful; it's bland, unexciting, and even ugly in some respects.

We all know you hate japanese cars by default clark, anyone else have an opinion?
clarkma5
boy, that was a wimpy way out of an argument.
DakianDelomast
I didn't feel like argueing about it. I want to see what other people's opinions are before we hijack this thread.

I really like the styling of the car, and i'm glad they werent released in the us, cuz it would be a friggin ricer car. (i dont know if that made senSe laugh.gif )

there's a turbo under there? all the plumbing for it is plastic?
DakianDelomast
Its blackish metal not plastic. Look at top the engine says turbo doesn't it?
nismo
Well, seeing the Silvia is the little sister of the skyline, its ice cold.


Clark, the front of it does look mean, but composed. Like it is a japanese dude who just chopped your Golf in half, and transmission fluid has gotten all over him from it spraying everywhere, but doesn't give a shit.

(Nissan Silvia= Japanese dude wth a sword ; transmission fluid= blood ) biggrin.gif

and clark...????????
