All you need to know about Nissan Silvia

Nissan Silvia is a part of Nissan from nearly five decades; the car is based on traditional series of Nissan platform's sport coupe. Apart from Silvia's body structure, Nissan's other latest version possesses similar features especially the American 240SX and European 200SX that looks similar to S13/S14 productions and a Japanese model 180SX.

Everything from Birth to Rebirth

The first model of Nissan Silvia was CPS311, the car made its first appearance as Datsun Coupe 1500 in September 1964 at the Tokyo Motor Show. However, the first version was not a machinary maked design, instead of that it's a handmade model that was centered to famous Fairlady convertible and the interiors mimics Count Albrecht Goertz. The first debut model includes Nissan R series 1.6 L engine that produces 96 hp and it is accompanied with dual SU carburetors. The marketing appeal of Silvia CPS311 is almost similar to Isuzu 117 Coup?.

Nissan introduced a marvellous design model number 554 in the year 1965, which is equipped with everything hand created including outer & interior structure. This 554 becomes the reason behind Silvia CSP311prodcution shutdown in 1968. Japan is the biggest market for Silvia and hence, the consumption of mostly cars continues in Japan and just about 49 cars were imported by Australia although 10 were imported by other countries. The manufacture of Silvia spent extra time in its production to make it the best, the time taken in its production is significantly higher than other usual cars and along with that its price is also double the average car. Once its production shutdown in 1968, it takes almost six years to Nissan and Silvia to create another Nissan Silvia together.

Considering its approach in markets and also in consumers, this one is strongly one of the most loved luxury cars.
