And this is precisely why you should always opt for an adjustable air suspension if you go the low-rider way; a dropped Nissan Silvia S13 coupe couldn't even handle going up a regular driveway without leaving a few bits of its body down on the road.

Playing God with the styling DNA of cars is nothing new, with results usually varying from WTF, like this Ford Mustang-faced and Nissan Skyline-assed BMW 7-Series to head-scratchers of the Subaru-BMW-Audi and Nissan 370Z-Porsche Panamera blending kind.

Soooo, That's How You Properly Drift a Nissan 180SX…


Read more

After sharing the facepalm-worthy video of a young man single-handedly (pun intended) drift crashing his Nissan 240SX on a cement pole, we thought it would be a good idea to show you what the rear-wheel drive Japanese sports coupe can really do in the right hands.

Nissan 240SX Driver is So Cool Drifting with One Hand on the Wheel…Until he Crashes


Read more

Everybody is entitled to believe that there's a little Keiichi Tsuchiy or a Tanner Foust lurking inside them when they get behind the wheel of a sports car, but that doesn't mean it holds true.

And even if it does to a certain extent, you should always pay attention to the road and leave the "look at me drifting with one hand on the wheel" trick for much, much later.

Every day, hundreds of beautiful women from all over the world put their faces and bodies on the pages of tuning magazines, but one model wants to stand out from the crowd by actually practicing what she advertises – drifting.

Of course that doesn't mean California born model Melisa Grace has abandoned her day job, hence the second video in which she poses on the left seat of a 1,300-horsepower Nissan GT-R for the eyes of HighTechCorvette's YouTube subscribers.

Proving that Formula One drivers can make the cut in most types of motorsports even in their after-years, former Finnish racing driver Mika Juhani Salo sat behind the wheel of a Nissan 200SX drift car.

The GT2 class winner of the 2008 and 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans had no problem harnessing the 700-horses (and 850Nm) found under the hood of the 1999 Nissan S14 coupe.

Nissan Silvia S14 Looks Ready to Pick a Dog Fight


Read more

While not the first World War II fighter jet-themed automobile we've shown you, we can't remember seeing the motif applied to a Nissan Silvia S14 (sold as the 240SX in North America as the 200SX in Europe).

This one in particular is said to be inspired from German jet fighters and is distinguished by the attention to details, right up to a certain sign of an equilateral cross that appears on the rear bumper and front fenders – more commonly known as the Swastika, the most hated and prominent symbol of Nazi Germany.

Something tells us the owner of the car won't be making a lot of friends…

New Jersey's Nissan Drifters are Bad to the Bone

When a bunch of drift-loving drivers in Nissan 240SX sports coupes show up at the Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, with a crew of cameramen it can only mean one thing and no, it has nothing to do with the inhabitants of Jersey Shore.

These fellas are the Bloodmasters, as they call themselves, and they've come together to create a pretty nifty drift video, the first part of which was released this week. Buckle up and slide over the jump to enjoy a little over five minutes of punk-rocking drift shenanigans.

Video: Why You Shouldn't Buy a Fake Nardi Steering Wheel


Read more

An online aftermarket shop in Britain named Driftworks released a humorous video to inform consumers on why they should avoid buying cheap knockoffs from the internet.

After buying a fake Nardi-style steering wheel for about £70 (US$108 / €80) on eBay, compared to around £220 (US$338 / €252) for a genuine, made in Italy Nardi wheel, they put it to the test fitting it on a Nissan 200SX laying around in their garage.

As for the results, well, let's just say the faux Nardi wouldn't make the cut for a replacement on your Logitech G25 wheel, let alone your car… Video follows after the break.

Read more

Who ever said that drifting is only for men surely hasn’t seen Sumika Kubokawa in action. The 27 year old from Japan is a member of Team Orange, one of the leading drift teams in the D1 Grand Prix Series, and as you can see for yourself in the video after the jump, she certainly knows her way behind the steering wheel.

In her interview with Driftcolors, Sumika says she is an avid fan of the Nissan 180SX, which was sold in North America as the 240SX and in some other countries under the 200SX name. Sumika also said she street drifted for a brief period when she was younger but was caught and hasn’t done it again. Check out her interview as well as the first and second episode of the series after the break.

In today’s video find, we present a pair of daredevil Russian drifters swooping and sliding their way through the streets of Moscow, Russia in a Nissan 200SX ute [S13] and what appears to be a Nissan Silvia [S15]. The drivers are Evgeniy Satyukov and Geprgiy Stepanyan who took first and second place respectively in the ‘Russian Drift Series 2010’.

A Nissan Silva Coupe with a Schizophrenic Personality


Read more

In October of 2010 we brought you a Toyota Soarer / Lexus SC that had been transformed into an abomination with a Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM front end and a Nissan 200SX rump. It was bad, but I still liked it better than the snooze-mobile that was the ‘91 Soarer / CS.

Well, from the same website that brought us that automotive mullet comes yet another creation that’s been refashioned into something else. This time its a Nissan Silva. This particular freak of coach building features a Mercedes-Benz rear end (or at very least the taillights) and Nissan 350Z front end. The result is less than impressive.

Nissan 200SX Mobile BBQ Trailer

If you happen to have a mullet and a lifeless Nissan 200SX -or any car for that matter- laying around somewhere and you don't know if you should get rid of it or make something useful out of it, here's a 'nifty' idea; how about chopping it in half and transforming it into a mobile BBQ-trailer with an integrated tailgate grill? What an attention grabber...

Awesome Hand-Built Nissan 200SX Track Car


Read more
Nissan 200SX Track CarThanks to the internet, we're constantly learning about the accomplishments of truly gifted individuals that build awe-inspiring projects in the garage of their own home. This stunning Nissan 200SX track car is the result of three years of blistering hand work by a member of the UK-based enthusiast forum, 'SXOC' who goes by the nickname "CravingImpact". Everything you see in these pictures was hand built or modified by the vehicle's owner including the front splitter, the rear diffuser and various body panels! -Continued

Nissan 200SX Track CarAlthough the aerodynamic add-ons haven't been tested in a windtunnel (apparently) for their effectiveness, the owner claims that he tried to "use basic principles in the design which are tried and tested and hopefully cant fail". "Like my diffuser for example, its only angled up at 7 degrees which is said to be a good starting point," he said in his post.

Even so, seeing how he managed to transform a road going Nissan 200SX into a beastly looking track car that makes us drool like a teen, we have nothing else but utter respect for him and can't wait to see what he has in store for the vehicle's mechanics in the near future.

Nissan 180SX with 1970’s 240Z Face Transplant


Read more
Nissan 180SX 240ZSome people think that the true successor of the 1970s Nissan 240Z /280ZX (Z30) which was also known in Japan as the Fairlady Z wasn’t the early ‘80s 300ZX (Z31), but the smaller and more nimble 180SX / 200SX / 240SX series that came in the late 1980s. A Japanese owner of a 1994 180SX took that belief a little bit too serious by performing a ‘surgical’ 240Z face transplant on his coupe. The funny thing is that, judging from the pictures, the well executed conversion doesn’t look half bad. But that’s our personal opinion so feel free to disagree. -Continued

The modified 180SX that’s equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is now up for sale on an Australian site with the price set $10,600 AUD including shipping, import duty, GST and the company’s service fee. However, potential buyers should be aware that the Japanese coupe is being offered for race or rally use only as it is not suitable for import to Australia as a road car.
