Silvia S15 Spec-R Aero
Immaculate condition complete with rare Factory Option Bodykit (Polyurethane), including further option rear spoiler. Spec includes: Dual SRS Airbags, Climate Control A/C, PAS, ABS, Electric windows (Auto up/down on drivers side), Electrically controlled door mirrors with retract mode, remote central locking. Original fitted mats. HID headlamps with height adjusment. Optional factory driving lights. An Kenwood CD/Radio/Cassette unit is also fitted and supplied with the car free of charge. Wheels are 17" Impul NS-01R lightweight forged items. Tyres are in good condition (See pictures). Modifications include Nismo uprated suspension springs and dampers, lowering the ride slightly and improving both looks and handling, especially when combined with the Cusco aliminum front strut brace also fitted. This suspension set up gives great performance whilst maintaining a comfortable ride, unlike many other S15 suspension options.
Performance wise the SR20DET (250BHP in Standard Form) has 5Zigen free flowing stainless steel exhaust system (Catalyst Back). It is louder than std, although not excessive, tailpipe silencer is included to silence further if required, although we do not feel this will be required, once the sound this Sr20DET makes has been heard by the purchaser! The original catalyst is retained. A Blitz induction kit is fitted to improve breathing, also giving a deep induction roar at full throttle. A Blitz MSTT Turbo Timer is fitted to allow the turbo to cool effectively after a spirited drive, preventing premature turbo wear. Aside from these and the suspension, the car is in standard condition throughout, having never been abused throughout it's life.
The S15 is a substantially improved car than the S14a in many ways, as follows:
1) Steering system stiffness has been increased to provide improved steering feel.
2) The front strut suspension and rear multi-link suspension has been carried over to the S15 Silvia.
3)Strengthening the upper member of the hood structure and adding reinforcements to rear pillars has increased body stiffness.
4)The Silvia spec-R series is fitted with ventilated front disc brakes with opposed 4-piston calipers, highly responsive ABS and a larger brake booster.
5)The driving position has been ergonomically designed to allow quicker execution of driving controls and to provide a seating posture for minimal fatigue during driving.
6)The instrumentation is laid out with a large size tachometer positioned in the center of the cluster.
7)The Spec-R also comes with titanium-look instrument finishers and a 52mm boost pressure gauge is attached to the driver's side front pillar.
The auction grade is 3.5 due to modifications. As you'll see from the picture of the sheet, the car's in excellent condition. Most Silvias have been crash repaired - not this one! This example has clearly been carefully cherished. It's in outstanding condition. Underneath, it's also like new. The only minor fault are some small stone chips to the bonnet. These will be repaired as part of the UK preparation and are described for the purpose of providing an accurate report. Signs clearly show of this Silvia having been regularly serviced and well maintained. It would appear this car spent most of it's driven life on Motorways cruising at legal speeds in Japan, still at present retaining the standard speed limiter.
We test drove this Silvia for some considerable distance it's clear to us this car was well looked after by the previous owner - judging by the tight feeling of the driving experience it gave. Feels tight, with no squeaks or rattles and handles much like our own S15, with a very direct and responsive feel to the steering, pedals, gearshift and chassis. In short, despite the motorway mileage this car has covered so far, it feels just like a new S15. The suspension is a vast improvement over standard with the cornering 'wallow' dialed out. Handling on an S15 as standard is biased toward oversteer and sometimes difficult to catch, if unexpected. This example is tight and precise, very entertaining to drive!
In keeping with this car's condition, the interior has no faults at all to report, with no wear to seats, switches or carpets mats. The centre console trim has been professionally painted, if desired we can source a new replacement panel at low cost.
