1989-1996 NISSAN 200SX Silvia specifications


When the 200SX arrived on the scene in 1989 it seemed that Nissan had rediscovered its sports car mojo, seemingly lost since the end of the 260Z production run in 1978. With 197bhp on tap and an exploitable RWD chassis, it was an excellent driver’s car – and thanks to old fashioned good looks, it was also desirable in the showroom. Nissan had no trouble selling all it could import, and it remained popular until it went out of production. Has gone on to enjoy a successful afterlife thanks to the drifting scene, and unmolested examples are now rare.
