Nissan Silvia S15

In many cases in life, you are striving in life to get something that you love. For instance you would actually get a girl that is trust worthy, pretty and hopefully spend a lifetime with you. I am pursuing that special someone and her name is Silvia. Well if I told you Silvia is a girl then this is not the blog you should be reading, I am referring to the Nissan Silvia S15. This is a car that I would like to get due to its looks and what’s under the sleek body frame. I remember a few years back when I was in Australia and a friend of mine owns a S15 2001 model and we were at it in modifying ourselves coz the labour charges was crazily expensive in the land down under. Those were the days when we bought boost gauge and exhaust from Malaysia and carried into the plane just to save a few hundred.




The Nissan Silvia was around for at least 40 years (1964) and in my opinion the Nissan Silvia is the sexiest Nissan ever built. The popularity of the Silvia is basically aligned with the ever-growing popularity of the drifting world.


The Silvia not only has looks but the power is also there and I have tried to drag on one traffic light to another which adds up to a quarter mile and I was pretty scared. My friends 2001 Silvia has around 250 horses with minor mods but unfortunately no match to the Holden Monaro (I will talk about this abomination soon)! The handling to the car needs some getting use to as that was one of the first rear wheel drive cars I have driven, it took me a week to get use to it and it was great at the corners despite its light body frame. To those readers from Adelaide Australia, the place that I use to test the car was the road up the Adelaide hills, scary place but it was trilling.


The engine is a pretty reliable engine as it is basically shared with its Nissan sisters (Nissan Bluebird (Altima), S13) it is still running now after 7 years. Of course there are some problems with the twin cams, as I would think it’s a ware and tare thing. Well I hope to get one Silvia soon, as for now I guess the Nissan Altima SR20DE will do for now.

About the Author

When I was a little younger, I never had the interest in cars at all. Somehow it picked it up when I was in high school and oh yeah did I mention my dad and brother loves cars as well? I am more of a Japanese Car lover then any other car but don’t get me wrong I like the rest as well. Let’s just say that Jap cars are the first on my list. Drifting, racing circuits and rallying, these are the thing that I love to do but I can’t! Well let’s just say I don’t have the skills for these kind of things. So the only thing I do is occasionally drive fast on the road when I am provoked by a much slower car or in par. "All you need to see is my tail light" turboturtle

  1. I took a few pictures of my friend’s Sylvia 🙂 you may be interested to view them 🙂

  2. Really this Nissan have quite simple design even as coupe. Also the syle looks like Peugeot 406 coupe. But the engine definitely is much different.
